 Day 4 was the last day of the Lagos Fashion & Design Week and it was reserved for the accomplished and respected designers in the Nigerian Fashion Industry. It was not to be missed!
The day started with a display of the GTB Capsule collection. Iconic Invanity, Ella & Gabby among others.
The Ituen Basi showcase was fun, bright and upbeat! The models were all smiles as they hit the runway.

Tiffany Amber. Her collection was beautiful. Loved the three pieces below the most. I love clothes that are easy to wear and don’t require any diets. The collection was very versatile. The clothes can be worn during the day or dressed up with heels at night.

 Mai Atafo took androgyny to a whole other level with his collection. I had heard of this designer prior to the show but I was not aware that he also did women’s wear. Boy was I amazed by his new take on the traditional Iro and Buba. This collection was superb!

Meena. Oh Meena! Meena stole my heart. Such excellent tailoring! That brown jacket looks amazing. Everything looked amazing. Clearly a designer who knows the type of woman she wants to wear her clothes. I loved this collection!

Lanre Da Silva Ajayi makes clothes for the truly feminine woman. Her colour palette was bright without being too overwhelming. Her clothes allow a lady stand out without it seeming like she is looking for attention. Loved the prints she chose for her dresses.
