Nigeria Fashion: Where's the biggest place to buy designer brands in Nigeria? - the Second-Hand clothes market!
"We have London clothes, Korea, Chinese, we have TM, Calvin Klein - everything is there!" says Mrs Muritado, a local trader in Yaba market, who explains how they used to even find dollars, gold, sterling and more in the clothes!
But you have to push and hustle through the crowds to get the clothes you want - check out our video from one of the largest and most popular clothes markets in Yaba here:
Nigeria Fashion: Designer Clothes from the Second-Hand market
The Second-Hand clothes = otherwise known as 'Okrika' are imported from abroad in large bails which are bought by the marketers and then 'unwrapped' and sold in the market. Often no one including the traders know what clothes will be inside - sometimes, something cheap, sometimes a designer suit!
"I come here because I learned you can get things cheaper," says Mrs Katherine, a customer who has to push to get her clothes. "Sometimes I have to find a place to sit down because it's so crowded!"
When asked what sells most in the market, Mrs Obiageli explains "Children trousers, polo's, shirts, men and ladies trousers, bags, shoes, ladies shoes, belts and many other things."
Most people prefer to buy their cloths in the local market because it's affordable - even your designer clothes can be cheap:
"The prices of the cloths depends on the quality and the grade," says Mrs Obiageli, who sells children and adult cloths.
But it's not easy for the marketers:
"I face a lot of challenges, depending on the custom officer handling our goods when bringing it down from Coton because they say Okrika is contraband and is illegal. At times our goods has been impounded and never returned to us." explains Mrs Muritado.
"These Agbero people [market touts or Area Boys] fight us, disturb us before we can even give them money - so we have many challenges," says Mrs Obiageli.
