the geles and husbands began to turn red in the face, or they weret ready to always enrich the
pockets of makeup/gele artists (no offense). Some desired to dress traditional to church or particular
functions but the concern of headgears was the start of abstinence.

All these challenges resulted in the arrival of Opeke interpreted an indigenous fashion brand

As Gele they're known in Nigeria, and can be rather big and elaborate. Although gele can be worn

for day to day tasks, the intricate ceremonial ones (generally made from a material which is stronger
than regular cloth) are worn to weddings, special events, and church activities. A resurrection in
African pride, especially among the youth, has led to its usage outside of Africa in many Western
nations. When worn, especially for more elaborate occasions, the gele normally covers a girl's her
ears as well as whole hair. The only part exposed is earrings and her face on the lower part of her
earlobes. Traditional African dress that might or might not have exactly the same routine as the

Geles ending leaning to the right indicates a Girl is married and a Geles end leaning to the
left signals a Girl is Single. Nevertheless, in society today, particularly in the Urban areas, there is
no defined indicator of a Womans marital status by the way. African Girls can be very specific on
