The last one month in the fashion industry has witnessed class, colour and innovative fashion designs showcasing indigenous fabrics.
Two weeks ago, the Lagos Fashion, organized by Merydian International, the 5th in the series, was staged at the prestigious Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. The event was a competition that can be regarded as world class. The country leading and most popular designers gave the new kids on the block of fashion chance to showcase their talent.
According to FADAN president, Moji Ajila-Ladipo, “the aim of the one day event, which was a collaboration between Turkey and Nigeria, is to see how Nigerian fashion designers can mass produce more, we want them to teach us how they do some of those things and then we want people to see what has been done in other countries.
“If you look at it, these people came all the way from Turkey, over 60 of them, and they are designers and they mass produce. These are the things many Nigerians are wearing here. So we want to try and see how we can do our own thing. Our own people can mass produce and then we want our own people to see what is happening in other countries as well.”
She also revealed that the plan is to give Nigerian designers a platform to exhibit their products, hone their skills and show them how to mass-produce quality end products to the Nigerian masses and the world.
