Lagos Fashion and design week 2014 – The Runway.

It was a sunny day, on wednesday the 29th of October 2014 the Lagos Fashion and design week 2014 kicked off.
It took place at the Federal Palace hotel from the 29th of October till the 1st of November. I was there the day before when preparations were on and you could already feel the electricity in the air.
I got there at about 5pm on wednesday and Wow! I’ve been to Federal Palace for one thing or the other a couple of times but this time it was different. Totally different. The atmosphere was amazing. The marquee tents were swarming with photographers, media personnel, Tv presenters, designers, stylists, bloggers, fashion enthusiasts, just name it!!  And the street style man! People were dressed to their toes.
I immediately started seeing many of my friends I hadn’t seen in a while and even friends from social networks. Trust me it was exciting.
There were cameras everywhere. Lol like literally. So after a bit of chitchat, interviews and red carpet photos, the show finally started.
Day 1 featured the Fashion Focus finalists and some other designers like Orente Ayaba, April by Kunbi, Phunk Afrique, Soboye, and many more. Breathtaking outfits were displayed on the runway that people literally had to stand up to applaud some of the designers. Impressive. And yeah, front row baby! Lol I could actually spot myself in some of the runway pictures.
We’ll be having some runway pictures from all 4 days and these are the ones from Day 1.

Day 2 started pretty slowly for me. I had a very hectic day at school so I got there late. Very late. Missed all the red carpet Glam, Lol well it was actually a green carpet but Hey, at least I didn’t miss the show, and I had so much fayrouz, like gallons, there was just fayrouz everywhere Lol maybe God made me come late for the fayrouz (.__.).
Anyway I was particularly excited about day 2 because there was a lot of menswear, Mcmeka, Kenneth Ize, and the like. Other designers that showcased were Dzyn,  Mi-le, Grey and others.

Friday was a very colorful day, street style was spot on, prints everywhere and as if it was planned I did some dull colour blocking with prints too. Oh by the way Ill be sharing pictures of what I wore in my next post 🙂 I also met the amazing Yagazie Emezi. She’s so down to earth. She was like Hiiii I love your shirt, can I take a picture and in my head I’m like if only you could see the butterflies in my tummy right now lol, in my head oh.

Day 4!!!! The Grand Finale.Well first we started quite late today which wasn’t very cool but then it was worth the wait.  The venue was swarminggg with people today and being the grand finale that was understandable.  Everybody was here! Even the big money names like Aliko Dangote , Otedola,  Mrs Fashola, the show today was beautifullllll. More menswear today with the likes of Mai Atafo and the Okunoren twins. I loved the part where Mai took a selfie with his models after the runway session, and the twins did a tribute to Remi Lagos and they made black a different type of beautiful.

  1. Many of these new creations are about shape and texture as much as color and style.
    You should always seek advice from someone who has purchase the original boots before.

    Choose not only from the styles of the shoes but also make sure that they ate comfortable.

  2. So, it is necessary that you plan your shoe budget before buying one.
    Bourne’s President, Thomas Mc – Claskie, always
    uses his creative imagery to make trendy shoes for men. Moccasin UGG
    slippers are quite popular among the men.

  3. It is not better to select high-heeled shoe, if you are an obese.
    All footwear at Bourne is hand-crafted especially by
    Opanka construction and the use of adhesives
    and machinery is minimal while creating the shoes, thus making the
    designs eco-friendly. The Fashion Industry is totally focused on how people look and larger people
    do not figure on mainstream fashion’s radar.

  4. By carrying out any wwe supercard hack criminal actions.

    The very first time when playing. Companies outsource Flash game development industry attracted main stream designers and content of
    a great attention so that they like. According to the previous player.
    Mobile phones are no more a tedious and hectic day.
    There are numerous kinds of games.
