With the love for parties comes the need to always slay in one's best ensemble. This is where Nigerian tailors and designers come in.
In online bants, there is a general belief that Nigerian tailors are synonymous with disappointment. This probably has to do with the fact that over 90% of Nigerians have had a bad experience with a tailor.
If it's not about a tailor failing to meet a given deadline, the story is often about getting ill-fitted outfits entirely different from what one ordered.
