Aisha Buhari wears Oscar de la Renta Kaftan to welcome Uganda’s First Lady

Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari, was spotted in a designer dress during a reception she held for her visiting Ugandan counterpart, Mrs. Janet Museveni on Friday.

The magnificent dress, found on websites linking it to affluent Dominican fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, appears to cost a fortune, even in dollar terms.

Described on the designer’s website as “New Oscar de la Renta embellished white lace guipure maxi dress gown,” the impressive dress was first seen in March 2016, and it comes under the broad tag of “Destination wedding dress.”

Describing its uniqueness, the designer’s website says the embellished caftan “brings an indulgent dose of classic glamour to your wardrobe.”

It is 100% silk, with the instruction: “Dry Clean Only.”

It is a delight to behold. But while the Oscar de la Renta website no longer hosts the dress among its expensive stock, it could be found on high-end online shopping stores.

And though it appears to have been officially pulled from circulation, it was however traced it to the e-Bay, where it has been put up for $1,099.99, which is a staggering N390,496.45 at official exchange rate.

On the e-Bay, buyers appear to have the opportunity to pay monthly installment of $52 for 24 months.
