Growing up in Nigeria, the tying of the gele was always a sign of an upcoming special occasion. The gele meant more to women than a tiara or an actual crown. It was the ultimate expression of femininity and beauty.
Every season comes with set of ‘it’ things that take over the fashion scene but for the gele (which stays for all season) every season come with different styles. As far as owambe keeps blossoming, fashionista find creative ways to turn gele into something that would cause a frenzy. Maybe it was the glimmering metallics of the aso oke, or the bright shades of the head wrap, that made women look so glamorous. These head wraps were empowering, beautiful and divine.
Today, gele is the naija-centric symbol of a well dressed Nigerian woman ready for an owambe. Not wearing a gele is like being bare and ordinary or like something is amiss, which is why owambe gele is like no other as ladies go the extra miles for them. They plan for these owambes opting for very creative make-up and stunning gele styles.
