BBnaija’s Groovy Walks the runway for fashion brand, Cute-Saint, rocking some eye-catching designs.
Lagos, Nigeria-based Cute-Saint is a sustainable African modern fashion label. Through its artistry, it aims to bridge the gap between “luxury and affordability” and tell the largely disregarded African stories and narratives.
Cute-Saint takes pride in producing original, edgy designs using batiks manufactured by skilled local artists and organic textiles sourced locally.
The company values its workers, compensates them fairly for their job, looks out for them, and emphasizes the value of each person’s contribution. In addition to the distinctive design and color scheme of the textiles, cowrie shells were used in place of buttons to represent the brand’s cultural heritage.
The Heineken Lagos Fashion Week will hold from October 26th to October 30th 2022.
The fashion event is an annual multi-day clothing trade show that takes place in Lagos, Nigeria. It was founded in 2011 by Omoyemi Akerele and it is Africa’s largest fashion event drawing considerable media attention, nationally and internationally.
It showcases over 60 Nigerian and African fashion designers to a global audience of more than 40.000 retailers, media and consumers.
