Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie continues to remain true to her commitment to promoting Nigerian designers by showcasing their designs to the world.

The renowned author was spotted rocking Nkwo’s design during a book fair in faraway China.

The dress, in particular, a piece from Nkwo’s Essentials range is christened The Flip Dress and is made of denim materials. The short-sleeved dress has vertical and horizontal stripes running all through – the former on the upper body and the latter on the lower body – as well as an asymmetrical hem that makes for an altogether quirky piece of clothing.

Chimamanda not only wore the dress but also shared it with her fans on Instagram, with a note that specifically mentions Nkwo as the designer of the dress, and also includes the #MadeInNigeria.

Of course, the gesture was well appreciated as the fashion house reposted the image with the caption:

BLUESDAY GIRL… and stunning as always @chimamanda_adichie rocking our Basic Blues Flip dress at the Shanghai Book Fair.

Thank you so much for championing African designers. We love you!!!
