Designing and creating clothes inspired by Nigerian fashion is the passion of one woman in Wagga.
In recent weeks, The Daily Advertiser has been highlighting fashions from cultures that are thriving in the region, with women leading the way forward.
Aderonke Ayedero, known to some as Elizabeth, moved to Wagga with her husband in 2017.
"I have been able to learn new things, meet new people and see what the culture is like here," she said.
"It's very cold here."
Ms Ayedero said she is proud of the country she was born in and all it has to offer.
Nigeria is a country in West Africa which is rich in culture and diversity," she said.
"We have three major ethnic groups in Nigeria, the Hausas, Igbos, and Yorubas and I am from the Yorubas.
"We have two main religions, Christianity and Islam so our country is very diverse which is a good thing."
Ms Ayedero designs her own clothes and loves to choose bright colours to stand out.
"I am wearing an Ankara print and this [her headpiece] is called gele," she said,
"I can wear this outfit to a wedding, a christening and I can wear it to any type of occasion.
"It is simple, we have the more complex ones but I like this one."
Ms Ayedero said in her culture, women do not show their hair so wear headpieces to cover it.
"This one is a design among the Yoruba people, the other ethnic groups have theirs as well," she said.
"This one is the ceremonial one and we have one that we would wear day-to-day."
Ms Ayedero adopts fashion styles and prints when designing and creating clothes for her online business.
"I make blouses with African prints so I can wear with jeans," she said.
"I love colours and I love to play with colours so I like to wear the African prints all the time.
"This dress is not complex to make. I like white and red, so I look for prints that have a fusion of white and red."
Ms Ayedero said it is important for her to showcase Nigerian fashion.
"I am proud of my culture and I want people to see what my culture is like," she said.
"This is a way of me showcasing who I am to other people.
"Before I get to tell them who I am, they see it from what I am wearing."
