2 – The Aso -oke Garb : It  was a breathtaking display of Nigerian culture. She wore a stunning aso-oke  ensemble made by Ntukokwu Obinna Samuel the designer behind – Samuelmoon , complete with detailed feathered neckline and gele (head-tie). Her look was a perfect blend of her Igbo roots and new yoruba culture , enhanced with modern makeup and minimal accessories that highlighted her natural beauty.

2 .The Traditional Wedding Look :

The Ecru and gold attire  and eye catching matching Jewellery were made by the brand – Tubo . Although the first traditional piece was more realistic for photos than practical in movement and for this the brand was hit hard on social media – which made it escape the Miss List narrowly . As for the jewellery , would we say we were expectant to see Chioma flaunt any Graff diamonds, Serpentine Bvlgari  ,Chopard piece etc …. rather she wore some Naija brands .

In addition to answer the question of whether Tubo was now into accessory making ? Well we are not sure at the moment but we can tell you for free that the stunning pieces were made by Beads by Hayolar – as seen below

The Modern Celebration: For the white wedding, Chioma opted for a sleek and elegant gown that reflected her refined taste. The 2-toned dress in royal colours of wine and purple , with its intricate lace detailing and elegant silhouette, was a nod to classic traditional  bridal fashion, while still showcasing her unique personality was made of custom Aso Oke from Woven Market Africa, she showed out in exquisitely tailored by Nigerian designer— Couture by Tabik .


According to the designer Couture by Tabik, …”this beautiful floral motif outfit is an allegorical garden of love and joy. Each delicate bloom represents a moment of the couple’s journey together, filled with laughter and endless love. Wrapped in the beauty of their story and ready to start a new chapter of their life together as husband and wife,…..”

Chioma paired her stunning dress with matching wine Gele, artfully styled in layers by Taiwo’s Touch. She accessorized with a matching Aso Oke hand fan, dainty jewellery pieces from Frannicoles .
