Documenting the style-scape of Lagos, Nigeria




For me, the true catwalk is on the concrete. 

I'm typically uninterested in the runway. Most times I find it all a tad bit too "fashionable". 

E ma binu, I hunt for individual style, not what's in fashion.

However, on the third day of LFDW, I was invited in by none other than the founders of the event themselves. I was given a VIP pass which translated to front row seats, access to a VIP lounge, on-the-house hor d'oeuvres and drinks.

Well, okay then. I wasn't going to say no.

Turns out I had a nice time. The atmosphere was vibrant and I got to sit beside some ladies that would be termed "heavy-weights" in the Nigerian fashion industry.

All of that was nice, but for me, this was THE moment. The highlight of my front row seat experience.

The Andrea Iyamah swim wear range was showcased. I've blogged about the rapturous applause she received. It was truly something.

And here was the finale, the show closer, the sister of the founder, a creative in her own right. Did I mention she's a mom?

With that bod?
