Lagos Fashion Week is now in full swing. This year, the organisers dedicated two days to their digital expressions: Fashion Business Series and Digital Presentations from emerging designers from throughout Africa. In addition, a number of offsite presentations were welcomed.
Here’s a recap of the first two days as attended by Glamsquad Magazine‘s Ameena Dayo, as well as what we can expect today.
