Wow, four days of fun and fashion have come to an end so quickly! Lagos Fashion Week 2018 was truly spectacular and we’re so happy you followed the journey with us and got the best coverage from all possible angles. Runway, Street Style, Backstage, Fashion Parties – EVERYTHING!
Need a recap? See all the fun we had at this year’s Fashion Business Series event tagged “The Gathering”, everything juicy from Day 2 and all the unmissable runway moments and daring street style from Day 3!
All through the activity-packed four days, we had a very helpful companion – the TECNO Camon X!
We chose to go on this LFW journey with the Camon X because fashion week moves so fast and this was simply the best way to capture all the fast-moving action.
With super PD focus technology, it tracks and captures sequences of moving objects in sharp focus, so there will be no more blurred shots for us! With many of the fashion shows taking place in the evenings and at nighttime, we are assured of catching even the most unexpected moments in the blink of an eye.
As expected the last day of fashion week was as glamorous as it was busy – before the shows started the street style stars filed into the entry tent dressed to the nines. We’ll be bringing you the top street style trends we spotted soon on www.bellanaijastyle.com. From boxy blazer dresses to dad sneakers and bold accessories, the Lagos Fashion crowd brought their A-game!
Catch up on all the street style trends on www.bellanaijastyle.com . . Tag your faves when you spot them! There were so many nooks and spots to take selfies and other fun shots at #LagosFashionWeek2018. Our fave was the @tecnomobileng booth. Scroll through our timeline for shots of our faves there. Did you drop by? Did you try out the Camon X? #TECNOatLFW2018
One of our highlights for all the days was the fun TECNO-dedicated station inside one of the tents. The cool space had a photo booth, unique structures with great lighting for selfies and of course lots of fun snaps with TECNO Camon X. We got a chance to meet and take pictures with Fashion Entrepreneur Ozinna Anumudu and BBNaija 2018 housemate Tobi Bakre!
The runway shows on day 4 were bold and exuberant. As expected from the lineup, each of the designers brought not just their best offerings yet for the new season, but put up an incredible shows to follow the presentations.
Melding Africanism with intensely crafted pieces was the fashion movement sweeping fashion week and all the designers that showed on Day 4 were on target.
Fayrouz Nigeria even presented a collection with patriotic pops of green and white and Maki Oh showed her Spring/Summer 2019 collection that was inspired by Nigerian Bukas, (wh0 else is coveting that “Fresh Fish” tee?).
Among the top shows of the evening, Tokyo James showed off his latest offering which featured well-tailored fits with sparkly embroidery on them. The highlight was when superstar singer Seyi Shay came up on stage as part of the model lineup!
Strut Girl! @iamseyishay is definitely giving us chills at the moment. Her power strut for @tokyojamess is to die for. . . We can’t believe it’s the final day of #LagosFashionWeek2018 🙃 We loved every moment especially our time at the @tecnomobileng booth where we got to use the Camon X! #TECNOatLFW2018 . Head over to www.bellanaijastyle.com to see all the collections you missed!
While Sisiano and TTYA London presented soft pieces that complimented feminity, models walked down the runway in dresses, skirts and pants sets. In the way only a true pro can, Deola Sagoe‘s owambe-ready dresses and jumpsuits took the designer in a new young and fresh direction. This fluidity of the SS19 collection had a personal fashion handprint of expert tailoring.
Saving the best for last, Emmy Kasbit and Mai Atafo wowed the crowd with incredible showmanship and the skilled ways they interpreted the inspiration behind their individual collections.
Mai set a scene in the soviet union World War 2 with utilitarian jumpsuits and earth hues.
While Emmy Kasbit took us to Calabar with impressive comb-shaped jewellery and Efik inspired prints. The presentation was also applaudable, he added suspense and fast-paced music for a more dramatic effect.
Adebayo Oke-Lawal closed the shows for Lagos Fashion Week 2018 in grand style! His collection “The Orange Moon” explores one of the challenges plaguing the youth today – identity crisis and the need to find a voice in a very noisy world.
The show closed to the sonorous live sounds of Falana and the crowd rendered a thunderous round of applauds for the Orange Culture head designer as he took his final bow.
And with that, Lagos Fashion Week 2018 came to an end. We’ll be bringing you all the most buzzed about moments from LFW2018 and a round up of the best TECNO Camon X snaps soon – so stay tuned!
