A Nigerian fashion designer, Jane Michael, has described black undies and clothes as wardrobe essentials because the colour conceals nudity regardless of how transparent the clothe might be.
She therefore urged ladies and gentlemen to ensure they have a good number of black undies in their wardrobes insisting they were preferable to wear for outings as they (back undies) would save them from embarrassment in public when their outfit is transparent or slips off due to wind or other such circumstances.
She also advised ladies to desist from wearing strapped brassieres with off shoulder tops in order to appear responsible and decent.
Furthermore, she pointed that confidence was also a very important element in human appearance which would be determined when people wear clothes they were comfortable in.
Michael, who spoke on Sunday, during the “Style by Zenith” fair with the theme: Revamp your Style” held at Oniru, Lagos, also noted that black coloured cloths could be won with any other colour of accessories, unlike other coloured clothes.
The “Style by Zenith” fair was organised by Zenith Bank and Fashion One to showcase products in the food, fashion, media, automobile, accessories, music and arts industries.
She said: “Black undies conceal your nudity when your outfit is transparent and prevents you from being embarrassed in public when your cloth slips off unknowingly or when there is a heavy wind.
“This happens when I’m doing photo shoot so I tell my clients to come with black undies when coming for photo shoot.”
The fashion designer admonished that people should be cautious in their dress sense and ensure that their undies were completely concealed under their clothes.
“Save yourself the embarrassment of allowing people see your singlets underneath your clothe, rather, wear V neck singlets in such situation.
“For busty ladies, you should avoid wearing round neck dresses or cloths with collars as such render the breast unattractive regardless of the brassieres won.
“Ladies should stop wearing off shoulder clothes with strapped brassieres and always wear black undies under transparent cloths.
“Ensure healthy hygiene in managing your undies to guide against contacting diseases,” she said.
In his comments Jamaican Supermodel, Oraine Barrett, advised aspiring models to stay focused on their choice of career if they wish to succeed in it.
He said the modeling industry was open to everybody, regardless of age, height, weight, but needs aspiring models to stay focused to gain international recognition.
“For every aspiring model, the international market should be the focus just like me but it takes determination to achieve such because the industry is a horrible one.
“I have had my low moments but I have to speak to myself and encourage myself but the fact is nothing good comes easy,” he said.
Barrett commended the organisers of the fair for creating a beautiful platform for aspiring models to understand the business of modeling.
The Fair, began on Dec. 29, and ended with a musical concert which featured Mayorkun, Wande Coal, 2Baba and others on Dec. 30.
