Lagos Fashion Week begins its “Woven Threads II: Moving Circles” today. The virtual activations will explore distinct textile craftsmanship and its use of embroidery, weaving, spinning, and customization.
Lagos Fashion Week and Style House Files will present Iamisigo, Awa Meité, Nkwo, Emmy Kasbit, Pepper Row, Bloke among others at Woven Threads. These designers’ works highlight the link between the future of fashion and the preservation of textile craftsmanship across the continent as a foundation for cultural and socio-economic sustainability.
Bubu Ogisi takes us behind IAMISIGO’s Autumn/Winter 2021 collection features pieces made from cotton, recycled salt jute sack, recycled calfskin leather, handmade banana, and palm raffia dyed using Sodium Chloride to preserve colour.
