Interesting Facts About Wax

Queen Elizabeth II’s first visit to Nigeria in 1956

This (above) waxprint was designed for Queen Elizabeth II's first ever visit to Nigeria in 1956. Worn by crowds to show her a warm welcome. It's an African tradition to wear the same fabric, but in your own way, at special occasions. Representing that we are all the same, as much as are all unique.

Here's another photo (below) from my own Nigerian Engagement Celebration in 2013. Don't my Uni girls all look stunning - and unique - dressing in the same print?!
