Current Jam: Honestly, I have no songs in mind right now.
This time last week, I was in the fashion week mood, it’s funny how time flies.
Welcome to the month of November, I wish you a happy new month 💕
Today, I have come with another #lfdw post, I will be sharing with you my top 5 trends at the Heineken Lagos Fashion & Design week and some of the designers that showcased pieces with those trends. I initially thought I was going to do more than 5 but that’d make this post extremely long, so I decided to narrow it down to 5.
There were lots of fascinating designs that gave me style inspiration
Bear in mind that I will be referencing to few of the designers to make this post as short (reader friendly) as possible. Also, none of the pictures in this post are mine except the first picture. I got all the pictures from various instagram accounts.
I was happy to see cutout pieces incorporated in a number of designer’s collection in different ways, Style Temple, Gozel Green, DNA, Tokyo James, Andrea Iyamah, Emmy Kasbit are some of the designers that had cutouts in their collection.
The cuts were in various parts like shoulder, waist, cleavage and so on.
- CAPS, HATS & BERETS
I almost lost my voice cheering at some of the hats, caps and berets I saw on the runway. Remember how I said I needed to get a beret in this post?
From woven hats, to chief caps and berets, a good number of designers accessorized with head gears, and it was delightful to watch.
Some of the designers includes O’milua, Tokyo James, Post Imperial Sophie Zinga and Johnson Johnson.
- DEEP CLEAVAGE
I’m kind of an advocate of showing some skin 😏.
So believe me when I say that I was thrilled to see low/deep cleavage dresses, blazers and blouses on the runway, I like how sexy the pieces looked.
Titibel, Ejiro Amos Tafiri, Clan, Andrea Iyamah and Eki Orleans were giving life with their deep cleavage pieces.
If you thought the pajamas trend is over, think again!!
I was wowed by the pajamas pieces I saw during the fashion week, from the runway to street style, it is safe to say that this trend is not going anywhere anytime soon.
In fact, I am about to jump on it!
Ugo Monye, Ré, Orange culture and Maki Oh are some of the designers that did it for me as far as the pajamas trend
- AFRICAN FABRICS
I knew African fabrics would be showcased at the Lagos Fashion week, but I wasn’t expecting to see Aso oke.
You should have seen the smile on my face when I saw the models in Aso oke from designers like Emmy Kasbit, Sophie Singa, Kenneth Ize‘s collection.
Another African fabric that got my attention is Adire for me, Maki Oh and Tiffany Amber brought it!
Ankara was also showcased by designers like Kinabuti and Lisa Folawiyo.
