I am wearing this gorgeous dress from an Abuja based fashion brand called PDS By Chinnie. It’s a bespoke unisex clothing brand and OMG, guys, their pieces are lovely. If you have an event or occasion, PDS is the plug. I discovered them during my last trip to Nigeria; friendly and lovely team. Their pieces speak for themselves and materials are top notch. I wish you can feel the fabric quality yourself but for real I was blown away. Although the dress is a bit too long but maybe that because I was wearing flats, I am sure with heels you will manage to stop sweeping the ground like me.
I’ve been a bit picky with brands I work with lately simply because I want to make sure I give honest opinions about product reviews and there is no point just accepting to work with all brands if their quality isn’t recommendable. Anytime, anyday, I will surely recommend PDS to anyone. I still have more pieces I will be sharing with you guys so, stayed tuned.
If you wish to get in touch with them, you can either message them on Instagram @pds_bychinnie or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Better still, call/Whatsapp: 08109301177. If you are based in Abuja, you can either visit them at: 13 Ezekiel Okoya crescent, Off 612 road, 7th avenue, Gwarimpa.
