What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

From Nigeria With Love

Nma Couture

Houston-based fashion designer Julie Nma Ihe creates drool-worthy bespoke couture gowns and wedding dresses with a unique flair. Her label, Nma Couture, beautifully reflects the designer’s Nigerian background. In 2017, Ihe showcased her first collection during Houston’s African fashion week, and she’s been one of the go-to designers in the luxury market ever since.

Since she’s located in Texas, Ihe’s designs are particularly popular with serious pageant contestants, but I think they’d be just as at home at the Met Gala or any other world-class, high-fashion event.

You can follow Julie Nma Ihe and Nma Couture on Instagram and Facebook. (The brand does have a website, but it kept trying to download a Chrome extension to view, so I didn’t want to click on it.)

  1. Especially the first one, I thought what an interesting use of a parachute. I did like a couple of them. Hal

  2. Stunning dresses. Every single one you’ve showcased here is gorgeous from the fabric choices to the silhouettes. I think a lot of the appeal for me is that there is a classicly chic look to the dresses but with a thoroughly contemporary punch. She definitely deserves to be a higher profile designer.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous dresses but I can’t imagine trying to dance at a prom in a dress with so much material draped on the floor. Maybe I just had too many dates who stepped on my foot while slow dancing, but I just can’t image all that material is going to end well.

  5. Have you ever watched the TV show ‘Bob ❤ Abishola’? Most of the characters are from Nigeria and when the aunties dress up–the colors and patterns are gorgeous!!
