The Smart Money Woman TV series landed last night to much fanfare, despite the fact that the show has an inbuilt audience due to the best selling book –   you could tell that the new show adaptation had an impact far beyond the readers of the original book. One of the favourite parts of this first episode (bar giving us some levity in these very harsh times),was how stylish the characters and best of all they wore almost 80% Nigerian designers all through the 13 episode series! (PS: our Editor at Large was head of costume design!!)  Below, take a look at exclusive imagery from the show, which is sure to appeal to our #Bellastylistas who love some sumptuously costumed, escapist TV, or if you’re just looking to up your fashion game :
