Zebra Living: The Dikko Chronicles at 'a white space'....

On the 24th and 25th of November Zebra living unveiled the Dikko Chronicles at 'a white space'. I (white space PR girl) randomly walked in and saw many nicely draped colourful dresses. Ah it was 'Nabilla' by Zebra living on SALE!! Whatt!! Trust that I picked out the most AMAZING dress there :D.

Enough about me and my dress, have a look at the pictures from the Dikko Chronicles by Zebra Living. Refer to the previous post for more details about 'The Dikko Chronicles' Enjoy :-).


Zebra Living presents The Dikko Chronicles

You are cordially invited to join us as Zebra Living presents The Dikko Chronicles. 

This retrospective capsule collection of classic vintage Zebra dress staples we all know and love comes to life in iconic bold African wax prints, colourful vintage laces and retro painterly textures. In a kaleidoscopic explosion of colour and prints, The Dikko Chronicles is a visual representation of the Zebra brand origin and ethos - timeless, funky, happy and African.

A vibrant installation of Zebra's new Mara Home collection shall also be exhibited. For half a decade, Zebra's creative director, Ugoma Adegoke, has recycled fabrics and notions from her fashion projects to create rustic, collectible accent furniture pieces that now have morphed into an identity of their own attracting a cult following of art-loving, design-conscious and functional decorators and buyers. 

This will be the first public showcase of Zebra's Home Collection.

The Dikko Chronicles and Mara Home Exhibition by Zebra Living takes place at White Space, 58 Raymond Njoku Street, Off Awolowo Road, SW Ikoyi.

On Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th November 2012

From 12pm to 7pm each day.

CAIB2012 Press Release:


On the 23rd of November, 2012, at WHITE SPACE, 58 Raymond Njoku Street, Off Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos State, the first ever Cartoon Africa International Biennial (CAIB) festival and exhibition will open for the global public, with the central theme: “UNITED STATES OF AFRICA: Matters Arising”.
 The novel cartoon art event which is collaboratively put together by the African Press Cartoon Syndication Services, FICDATA and the BFIKBK is a multi-purpose, all-inclusive development education platform to drive innovation, productivity and sustainable development in the African continent, while promoting cultural diversity and African cartooning culture in a global context.

A press release by the organisers reads: ““Art is a universal lingua franca and the adage that a picture is worth a thousand words is not far-fetched: ‘One image can communicate more than dozens of pages of text or hours of speeches. One image can change the course of history. Editorial cartoons draw attention to important political, economic, and social issues like nothing else. Using symbols or visual metaphors, their reach transcends country borders and language barriers’”.

The CAIB2012 event will feature, among other things, presentation of certificates to all participants and prizes to the winners in each category of the biennial festival contest as well as cartoon workshop/paper presentations, fund-raising art and merchandise sales, etc.

“We are deploying cartoons and humour Art in general, as a creative education strategy to draw attention, fight societal evils, and spread awareness and inspire positive actions across Africa for progressive change of perspectives, retrogressive habits and the negative systemic status quo precluding sustainable development, and to drive productivity, equity, moral capital development and innovative human/cultural resources development across Africa in a global context. CAIB strategically aims at creating a strong platform to effectively promote African Cartooning, graphic communication and visual literature with an attitude” the statement said.

Follow-up travelling exhibitions, cartoon workshops and seminars, fund-raising Art auctions, merchandise sales etc, kicks off at the National Museum in Benin City, Edo State, home of the CAIB vision, on December 23rd 2012 and is expected to tour selected cities and towns across Nigeria and Parts of Africa, etc, spreading awareness, informing, educating and reorienting the public till December 2013 when the 2nd edition of the cartoon biennial is due.
