Coming From Ondo Implies A High Sense Of Fashion Even In Traditional Wear

One of the distinguishing features of the Ondo from the many the many ethnicities of the Yoruba tribe, is through their high sense of fashion in traditional outfits; through their employment of the Yoruba”aso-oke” in such ways as to create a distinct identity by making emphatic fashion statements in traditional haute-couture!

Most of the available Ondo “aso-oke” are derivable majorly from three main known types: “sanmiyan; etu; alaari.” There are combinations of the above to make: “petuje, ogungun-elu, lodemeta, laliga, etc” For the Ondo man and woman, a well put together traditional “aso-oke” outfit at important functions, radiates an aura of sartorial elegance and a majesty of bearing that can only come with some cultural pride.
