African women wear the Agbada, or Baban Riga, or Grand Boubou (bubu) as it is affectionately referred as in various regions of Africa, notably Nigeria, as a way to stand out from the crowd. It’s a close relative of the Dashiki. The Agbada’s origins may be traced back to Islam.
There are three parts to an Agbada: a pair of pants, a long-sleeved shelve, and an open-sewn gown.
