Yeah, so I didn’t attend Lagos Fashion and Design Week, there’s always next year, but I did attend Lagos Fashion 2016 and it was soo incredible.
Lagos fashion is a fashion show and exhibit organised between Nigeria and Germany. It was a three day event, which began on the 31st of October and ended on the 2nd of November, at Eko Hotels and Suites. Members of FADAN (Fashion Designers Association of Nigeria) alongside other Nigerian designers and designers from Germany, showcased their clothing on the runway, which obviously was so much fun and better than just seeing them on manikins.
The event was terrific. So much excitement was in the air. There was a raffle draw, where tons of really nice gifts were won like; sewing machine, ironing board & iron, two mobile phones (Tecno phanrom7) and so much more.
Some of the designers that really rocked my time there were; JM Clothing (dealing mostly with graphic designs on menswear), Victor Bassi (a designer who paints on clothings), DuayTexstil, Marigold by Adunni, Haggai Sports (made in Nigeria sports brand), Jeanne D’Arc, Crazy Daisy & Mistic.
Here are some of the mind blowing creations
