Traditional Beads

Use of Beads in Contemporary Fashion Industry of South-Western Nigeria (Published)

Nigeria is a very rich cultural center. The diversity is one of the major strength the nation has although, it has its own advantages and disadvantages. However, most Nigerians are only concerned about their own ethnic group, which is not good for true patriotism and unity. Most Nigerians have little or no knowledge of other ethnic groups, worse still, little knowledge about their own culture and ethnic extraction. This has become a trend among the younger generation of Nigerian youths who embrace western culture, religion and dressing. This paper explored an aspect of fashion in the Nigerian culture, which is the use of beads to compliment the dressing code in South Western Nigeria.
