Multiple award-winning Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, who covers L’Officiel Italia’s latest issue, is known to patronize Nigerian brands. She always ensures that she wears Nigerian brands at public functions.
The ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’ author covered the magazine’s 5th-anniversary issue, showcasing several made in Nigerian wears from Fashpa, Nkwo, and The Lady Maker.
” I’ve always loved clothes, high heels, lipsticks. When I started writing, however, I hid this side, because the world can be very intolerant of intellectually engaged women. I felt compelled to dress like a serious writer, not as I liked it.
