Hi guys! I hope you've all been having a wonderful week! As promised, here is a close up of some of my favorite pieces off the catwalk, from day 1 of the Lagos Fashion and Design Week. From Soboye and Phunk Afrique it was nothing short of that audacious burst of prints and that mix matching of printed fabrics, that has become synonymous with the African Nigerian aesthetic and approach to the use of fabrics and colours. It was explosive and delightfully authentic!
Not a lot to be outdone, April by Kunbi and Otumemine couture, were a present reminder that even when there's a torrent of rain, it's almost always summer in this part of the world. Both designers brought an unapologetic brightness to the runway and with it, a flirty and sexy playfulness,
showcasing a significant number of pieces in hues of pink, teal and turquoise. April by Kunbi and Otumemine couture also kept the classic colours, with the former showcasing some evening looks in white. Otumemine on the other hand showcased more casual looks in white and off whites and blended black with very soft shades of pink.
Teola 1962 went all Gothic metallic and Weiz Dhurm Franklyn, was all about futuristic sophistication with his structures and colour palette. Sisiano's collection was an ode to femininity for all occasions, from more casual chic day looks to more glamorous event styles.
Stay tuned for day 2-4 of the Lagos Fashion and Design Week runway. Until then...xxx
