Lagos fashion week 2018 kicked off this year’s fashion show last night amidst so much excitement.
This year’s showcase themed A/W Presentations which was introduced last year, speaks to African designers who are already creating collections for both traditional fashion seasons of Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter and are seeking global audience and customer base. It also speaks to Lagos fashion week’s commitment to catalyzing the African fashion industry ecosystem and providing greater avenues for commercial success for designers based on the continent.
This year’s presentation is much more like an intimate salon-style format, the collection showcase was followed by a client-designer reception adopting the “see now, buy now” model that allows clients shop or order straight from presentations.
The Presentation series is entitled “Seasons” – an ode to the metamorphosis of the African fashion industry, the emerging talents, key industry purveyors, the systems and structures, required to lead it to its promise land – a robust industry gravely impacting lives and African economic landscape.
This year’s presentation kicked off showing amazing designs from Gozel Green which had a collection of trendy colorful ready to wear Autumn/Winter outfits with a mix of thick fabrics. This was followed up by Mo Agusto collections a mix of velveteen fabrics crafted into a trendy fashion Spring/summer ready to wear outfits.
The final showcase was from IAMISIGO Autumn/Winter collections a blend of Western – African inspiration with a touch of Jean fabrics stole the showcase adorning the admiration of the audience with her imaginative and art inspired collections.
