The name Walid Atallah is synonymous with opulence, extravagance and the most gorgeous kind of fashion. He is most often described in the fashion media world as the designer to the royals and even amongst his own ilk as one of the most creative designer in the world. He loves to fuse his creations with extraordinary elements like chunks of gold, precious stones like diamonds, emeralds, silver and gold threads and so much more, making the final creation like the stuff angels wear. For those who do not know, angels most especially the higher ones like the cherubs and seraphs are all made from the most glorious of precious stones.
Imagine a wedding dress costing as much as $1.2 million dollars for starters. This kind can only be worn be the super-super rich. According to our findings, the revered Lebanon born designer has a clientele in the Northern parts of Nigeria that reads like a virtual who-is-who. We heard that the super stylish Aisha Achimugu is an unrepentant customer just like another top lady, who used to be a Senator at one point, even the publisher of Maktoub Lifestyle magazine, the delectably gorgeous and stupendously stylish Mariam Mohammed is hooked on the label.
By virtue of the fact that he already has loads and loads of Nigerian fashionistas who love his creation to bits, we hear that a lifestyle store that would be stocking Walid’s creation is already in the offing and it would be based in Abuja, the FCT. This proposed world class outlet is being facilitated by the company owned by his public relations person, Mariam Mohammed.
All things been equal, the store should open before the year-2014 ends. To show what Walid’s creation is all about check out his last collection.
