Things TWP Loves


One of the things I miss most about living in the UK is the availability of fast and affordable fashion. There is a lot of retail in Nigeria but it can't really be matched by being able to just walk into H&M or River Island and get something nice that won't break the bank.

So when I heard about Things Nigerians Love my mind was not just blown it was completely murked.

Seriously affordable fashion, like seriously...and get this, the people at TNL make everything themselves; clothes, accessories, shoes; so they can afford to sell it at prices that won't give you a headache as opposed to our people who raid Primark and come back to Nigeria to sell it at outrageous prices (you know yourselves).

Things Nigerians Love, TNL is an online fashion retail store created for Nigerians who love fashion.

What they are trying to do here is different. They are not simply purchasing items from other stores and brands and selling them to you at exuberant prices .Enough of all of that.

Instead, what they have done at TNL, is to design and produce fashion items from scratch that they believe Nigerians will truly love and appreciate. Everything from product design, fabric selection and manufacturing has been done exclusively by TNL for TNL meaning that there is a minimum to zero chance that you will see any of their clothing elsewhere.

At TNL, they believe in the following: In pretty things.

That everything looks good in color and in animal print.

That Nigerians should be able to shop without hassle and without breaking bank.

And that looking good should not be an expensive venture.

Please feel free to browse through their site for a wide selection of trendy items at www.thingsnigerianslove.com . 

For customers in Abuja, You can either make your purchases from DV8 clothing store at Extension A34 Efab shopping mall area 11 Garki, Abuja or still do so directly from their site.

Shipping is free(yes FREE) and payments can be made on delivery or through a bank transfer. Please select the method best suited to you at checkout.

If you like them, tell your people. If you don't and think that there is something that they can improve on, well tell them so they can work on it and make you like them :)


All the clothes retail from about N3,900 to N8,000






None of the shoes cost more than N5,500


And the jewelry all cost N1,500 and below.



Shocking isn't it? 

How dare they be so cheap? What gives them the right to assume the position of a Nigerian H&M?

I mean you can take N15,000 to their site and come out with an entire outfit plus extras.

Happy shopping!

    1. Hey Anthonia!

      Thanks alot!:-) If I tell you about our business model well..i'd just have to charge you plenty:-) But as Daks mentioned, we make all our stuff as opposed to buying them from stores and that is why we are able to keep our prices down.

  6. Wow. Amazing! Too bad they dont ship worldwide! I so want that peplum dress and hot pink shoes!

  7. Honestly, more people need to copy this model. Nigerians are busy buying from foreign stores and reselling at ridiculous prices when they can get their very own suppliers from china and just sew on their own labels, Or even make their own interpretation of the many trends already out there. Im surprised it took us this long to get on board, but i'm happy someone is finally capitalizing on it.

    I wish they shipped worldwide tho cos i have a few items i am seriously eyeing. I'ma have to make some calls to my folks in lagos.

  9. Love love love but I personally feel the prices (clothes and shoes) are a bit on the high side seeing as they make the clothes themselves. The jewelry prices are spot on and very affordable but the clothes and shoes are like normal boutique prices (just my opinion).

    1. Babes, i understand you, but with my 3 years of experience as a clothing manufacturer in Nigeria, i think they have tried. Retailers like H&M or Zara often take there designs to be manufactured in places like Bangladesh.....for cheap labor costs, not to mention the fact that they enjoy cost reduction from 'economy of scale'.

      The vision of most manufacturers in Nigeria is basically to produce clothes by Nigerians for Nigerians, which will go a long way in boosting the economy.Otherwise, trust me, we will just settle for buying and selling foreign brands, because it is way more profitable in the short term.
