Hey BellaStylistas!

As with all good things, GTBank Fashion Weekend 2018 came to an end yesterday in an awesome way. The two-day event brought together fashion enthusiasts, buyers, editors, models, designers and a host of other BellaStylistas together to celebrate and promote enterprise within the fast-growing Nigerian Fashion Industry.

The day started with informative masterclass sessions with Dapper Dan, Nicholas Kirkwood, Nai’vasha Johnson among others. While vendors displayed their attractive made-in-Africa products in the open space. The eclectic crowd showed up for day 2 as expected in more daring street style-approved ensembles. Check out some looks we absolutely loved

The runway shows started promptly by 7 pm. Lanre DaSilva Ajayi heat things up quickly presenting matching metallic sets and pretty dresses as models strut to Nigerian music the audience couldn’t help but jive to.
