Nigerian celebrity stylist and designer Toyin Lawani has once again made waves with her unique Christmas attire, stirring up a buzz in the headlines.
Breaking away from the typical pajamas seen in Christmas shoots, the spouse of Segun Wealth chose a remarkably unconventional outfit. Toyin crafted a dress and cape using pepper and a mop, showcasing her creativity and bold fashion statement.
Explaining the inspiration behind her outfit, Toyin expressed how her challenging experiences throughout the year motivated her to carefully consider her annual Christmas shoot.
She revealed that her outfit was made up of 1000 pepper and 70 mops and she had a cut and the pepper entered her wound. She also admitted that the cape was heavier than she thought and her back couldn’t carry it for long but she tried her best.
“KOF PEPPER DEM
AND GOD SAID MY DAUGHTER,
I WILL PEPPER YOUR ENEMIES AND MOP YOUR TEARS AWAY, AND SO HE DID.
I’m STANDING HERE BY God’s GRACE CAUSE I don’t THINK YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS TO DIE for 10 minutes and make it back alive.
WITH WHAT I WENT THROUGH THIS YEAR,
I PUT IN A LOT OF THOUGHT INTO MY CHRISTMAS LOOK THIS YEAR,
70MOPS AND OVER 1000 PEPPER WENT INTO THIS CREATION AND TRUST ME I CRIED.
I HAD A CUT AND THE PEPPER ENTERED,
WAS IT WORTH IT,
HELL YEAH and the cape was heavier than I thought, my back couldn’t carry it for long but I tried my best, fell severally but pulled it off.
THE KING OF FASHION FOR A REASON
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY,
MAY WE ALL SEE THIS New Year IN GOODLIGHT.
Amen from the King of All Queens”.
