Continuing its ongoing efforts to provide African fashion entrepreneurs with access to market opportunities, Lagos Fashion Week returns for its 3rd trunk show in partnership with Moda Operandi.
Following Lagos Fashion Week this season, the #LagosFW x Moda Operandi Trunk Show which launches on November 11, highlights five designers, Tia Adeola, Banke Kuku, Odio Mimonet, Abiola Olusola and Orire, — each honouring their African heritage by incorporating their uniquely modern, ultra-covetable spin on traditional craftsmanship and local resources in their collection for the trunk show.
Our partnership with Moda Operandi is one we look forward to with pride each season. It speaks to the essence of Lagos Fashion Week – collaboration, co-creation and community by providing a platform for our designers and the team that bring their vision to life each season, to gain access to new markets. This year, we’re particularly pleased to introduce designers Abiola Olusola, Banke Kuku, Odio Mimonet, Oririe and Tia Adeola, each with their unique stories to share with Moda Operandi customers and we applaud designers Andrea Iyamah and Lisa Folawiyo’s continued success with their stand-alone trunk shows.” – Omoyemi Akerele Founder Style House Files and Lagos Fashion Week.
Moda is again proud to amplify the design talent from Lagos Fashion Week, for our third year in a row. Our customer comes to Moda as a point of discovery and has a strong appetite for new brands from around the world. We are inspired by the immense creativity and dedication to craftsmanship celebrated throughout the Lagos collections, and are honoured to share them with our customers. – Marc Rofksy, Buying Director at Moda Operandi.
