Gidan Nodza handbag exhibition – February 26-27, 2010

The incredibly talented Amina Hassan, owner and designer of Gidan Nodza bags and accessories (really, go check out her work on her blog!) will be holding an exhibition in Lagos this coming Friday and Saturday, February 26 and 27. The exhibition is called Jaka – An Exhibition of Bags. I’m a huge fan of her work so I begged her for more information. For those of you who are in Lagos or plan to be, or those who know someone who you can send there on your behalf, here are the details:

Dates: February 26-27, 2010 (this week!)
Time: 9:00am – 8:00pm (both days)
Location: Cactus Patisserie, 20-24 Ozumba Mbadiwe Avenue, Victoria Island, Lagos

Amina’s work blows me away because she doesn’t only construct the bags herself, she hand dyes the fabric part and I can’t even imagine how much work goes into that. Don’t take my word for it though; here is a preview of she has in store for you:

If you can make it on either of those days (or both days sef), go and show your support (tell her GNG sent you). Her work is truly beautiful and it’s good to support fellow Nigerians doing entrepreneurial things like this at such a high level, in addition to their day jobs! Simply inspiring!

  1. Hmm, would have been nice if I could get my J to go….

    She loves bags.

    To do that, she'd probably have to ship Del to the grandparents. And I don''t see her trading him for bags anytime soon. Even for a couple of hours. Heck, she'd trade me for him.

  2. Love love her stuff, will sub to her from my youtube channel…this is great . How are you doing girl? Been a while

  3. Thank you guys…I am sooo nervous and asking so many what if? questions. Like I have been telling my partner lately I cannot wait for Sunday 28th Feb cos it will mean that the exhibition has been done with, in four days I have slept for less than 6 hours.

    Thanks GNG for the feature. Stay blessed.

    I echo your wishes to Amina…hope it went well!


    I'm doing really well thanks…I'm sure you are too *wink*.

    Maybe one day we'll own our own Gidan Nodza originals!


    I know right? Hope your laptop issues are now nearly or fully resolved.


    I am with you…I've been such a slacker…must get my entrepreneurial muscles working too!

    Awww, I hope you had a great exhibition! I'll email you to ask for details after checking for a blog update.


    Oh, which bag do you have? A picture is in order!
