We may not have made it to the Heineken LFW 2018 show in Lagos last weekend, but we definitely had our eyes glued to our laptops watching for what this year’s designer brands had to offer and the selec:
So there were brands like the Dew collection that went through the spectrum from red carpet designs to sports wear, all in one collection! Then the Fruche collection that had lots of ruching, featherisms and knots. I particularly liked the maroon mono sleeve sheath dress with feather detailing and let’s not forget the huge bow over the one shoulder. Lovely and chic.
We are always pleased to see the soft feminine fabrics like the chiffon and silk as in the Fruche collection, or the Adire proudly shown by Kikoromeo.
The Nack collection however, may have been casual, bright and sporty, but this designer didn’t leave out local traditions in his showmanship and designing. Another brand not leaving out it’s tradition, was Neka in her collaboration with Iconic Invanity, called ‘Neka Youth DNA by Iconic Invanity’. There was her signature Adire mixed with the Iconic Invanity signature line and panel detailing in strong colors cut and tailored to attract the millennial.
A good introduction to the week.
