Hey fabs!

It’s fashion weeek time! Well…not really, lol. It’s real soon though and I can’t tell you how excited I am. I am dying to see what our prestigious designers have been working on. It’s going to be my first time as a full time blogger to be experiencing fashion week live and direct in the bustling city of Lagos.

This time, the LFDW team have promised us a bigger and better show displaying designers from across Africa in their bid to promote inter connectivity within the African fashion industries. Another exciting detail about fashion week this year is the replacement of the prestigious award ‘LFDW Young Designer of the Year’ with an even better award called the LFDW Fashion Focus. The benefits of this award include a 6 months internship with Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesy (LVMH)’s EDUN which will be facilitated by Frallain, a scholarship opportunity at Istituto Marangoni, retail pop ups across Nigeria and more exciting benefits. So if you are a young and talented designer reading this, you need to head over to http://www.lagosfashionanddesignweek.com and get the details on how to participate.

The Lagos fashion and design week is title sponsored by GTBank. It is also sponsored by Maybelline Nigeria, British Council and Fayrouz Nigeria. Their media partners also include Wings Magazine, Style Vitae, Haute Fashion Africa and Ono Bello.

Who is excited? Let the countdown begin!!!

Hey fabs!

Its the most stylish and fabulous week of the fashion calendar and I can’t even tell you all how excited i am. Lagos Fashion and Design Week kicked off yesterday at the Ocean View Grounds by Eko Hotel, Lagos. Its that time of the year when we get to see the trends that will soon evade the fashion scene, we get 4 days solely dedicated to drive the Nigerian fashion industry by bringing together the biggest names in fashion all over the world. LFDW is the best of both worlds as it will feature both local and international designers and showcase the best of African talents.
