Hello myqladies!!!!!😚😚😚 this is going to be long but kindly indulge me.
So in 2015, I decided to launch a Luxury bridal store; Blush by myq (I had always loved weddings and I realized it was a major driver of the Nigerian social calendar). I decided to stock top of the range, premium and couture designers and boy! was it a beautiful experience or what?
Imagine going to work everyday to meeting brides, bridal trains and hearing love stories. I loved every moment of this. By the end of 2015, The exchange rates were rattling but it was still bearable. Business slowed but we kept pushing. By 2016 the Naira went into a free fall and prices doubled but the show still had to go on. We were optimistic, we had seen this before and we felt we would overcome. By January 2017 prices trebled, we had gone from 160 naira to a dollar to 505 to a dollar. At that point nothing could work again. We couldn’t sell again. We were talking hundreds of thousands of dollars so we packed up the wedding dresses. We continued with the reception dresses. So in January 2018, when we closed the Ikeja store, we needed storage space and so I had to deal with the dresses. At this point, it didn’t t seem like such a big deal anymore. I had lived without the income for a year, my business had survived !!!! So I decided to sell them off at a fraction of the price, nobody ever said no to a sale. I wasn’t going to be needing replacement cost, I just needed to sell them off. So I asked a couple of friends to join me and organize a bridal trunk show.
So @bunniebeesfabrics @shomya_lag @bimms24 and I decided to come together for a bridal trunk show. Dresses, fabrics, make up, aso oke at a huge discount.
