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.
Guarantee Trust Bank is the official sponsor for the event and other co sponsors include Maybelline New York, MTN, British Council and Wings Magazine. Of course there are some designers that I’m more that curious to see what they have in store for us like Tiffany Amber, Bridget Awosika, Iconic Invanity, Jewel by Lisa and so much more! Who is excited??? Cause I am! I would love for all of you to stay glued to FBY as I will be bringing you the latest collections from the runway of the best designers!
So, here is the detailed schedule for LFDW so we all can stalk our favorite designers…:-P
I remember the first time I spotted Eku Edewor. She was on the cover of TW magazine with her co host, Dolapo Oni and I remember thinking to myself, ‘She’s so damn pretty’. After watching her on the red carpet over the years, I finally figured that she isn’t just pretty, this lady is uber stylish!
For those of you that do not know, Eku Edewor is a host on studio 53 extra, a model and actress. Of course, Eku is a hot cake so she knows she has to be looking extremely yummy almost every time she steps out.
I would define Eku’s style as elegant, chic, feminine, fun and most importantly,timeless. Her style is all about prints, patterns, slits, lace, solid colors and so much more. She is like every designer’s dream muse!
I have heard that she loves to style herself but on major occasions like Awards and Galas, Eku works with Bolaji Animashaun…most of the time. Bolaji is a fantastic stylist and I got the opportunity to work with her once and all i gotta say is she knows her onions.
Above are some of my best print work that Eku has done.
Eku, i noticed plays a lot with her hair and she can get away with it because of her amazing glowing skin. How amazing does she look in this royal blue evening dress?
Check out Eku giving us her ultra sexy side. Love love her and her approach towards fashion. Fashion is fun and i tell you, she does have a lot of fun with her style! Hopefully, i’d get to meet her someday or even better, work with her **wink**
