Grace Shannan .....

Hey everyone,howz d week going? Week's going okay,mad revision,cant wait for the weekend to come but even then it's still just more revision...anyways,on to the post...

This fantastic designer uses fabrics such as lace to make cocktail dresses, evening wear,bridesmaid dresses and even for the Bridal Party designs.The name "Grace Shannan" is an amalgamation (yes,big words in use here...lol) of both her's and her daughter's names and the label captures the essence of style, sophistication and elegance which is what she set out to achieve.

But Grace didnt start out as a fashion designer, she actually graduated with an MSc in Information Systems Management and a BSc in Business Information Systems, but she always knew her talent and dreams were in fashion designing and then proceeded to teach herself everything she now knows about designing!

The Grace Shannan woman knows she has style, class and of course 'Grace'. There is no doubt, her collections are just Fan-ta-bu-lous!!! Click the WEBSITE to view more fabulous designs,contact designer and order your own Grace Shannan outfit!

Not a huge fan of lace but the potential to have stunning designs is there and the ones by this Grace lady are hot....Very nice

Nice designs.. very nice indeed.
But I just have to say most of our naija people are let down by their websites.

It seems they've just employed someone who says.. hey I can do flash, i'll build your website.

the website does nothing to enhance or even showcase her assets. It's formulaic, definitely from a template and of course doesn't put the audience needs into consideration, it feels dark and small, like walking down a back alley, as opposed to what the dresses seem to be saying which is bright, fresh... daring even.

A good dress/clothes designer should chose a webdeigner who can represent her ideas online.

Thanks 9ja Vixen for sharing these info...I love Grace's designs because it is something I can wear...

I'm here in pursuit of my favourite show biz columnist, Dami. How are you?
You have to spread the word and be a part of the Naija Bloggers Book. Excuse me while I take up your space below-

This is a call to all Nigerian bloggers worldwide to become a part of An anthology of the greatest works of Nigerian Bloggers-

A book called Naija bloggers Vol 1.

Nigerian Bloggers around the globe are requested to send in their stories or recommend great posts for the publication of a physical anthology, the first of its kind by any group of bloggers on any continent.

The categories are anecdotes, short stories, poetry, prose, drama and essays but there is room for as many sub-categories as are sent in as the book will also serve as a platform where artistes can showcase architectural/interior/exterior designs, photography, paintings as well as fashion and textile designs. Submissions are therefore welcome on any topic whether covered here or not.

For more information, please go to: http://laspapi.blogspot.com/2007/05/naija-bloggers-book-this-is-call-to-all.html#links

I'm loving your new template ... very boudoir chic!

I also like what Grace Shannen is doing ... funnily enough, I'm just having a dress made out of yellow lace, hopefully it'll turn out well!

By the way, my friend is launching her amazing label 'Zebra' soon in Lagos so you should feature her sometime!
