Fashion in Lagos and Nigeria as a whole is and will always be a huge part of our culture and identity. . . . And through fashion design, I have been given a wonderful platform to tell my stories to the rest of the world” says renowned fashion designer Lisa Folawiyo to Vogue‘s Monica Mendal.

The designer who was born and brought up in Lagos is known for her artistic Instagram snaps that shed light on the beautiful city. According to her, Lagos never sleeps, amidst the traffic jams, the sounds of generators, and the bustle of every day, the city remains charming—bursting at its seams with art, culture, and music.

From fashion weeks and weekends to its bubbling Nightlife scene, Lagos is Africa’s financial metropolis and has gained recognition as an epicenter for global fashion. It is a must-visit destination for fashion and lifestyle lovers.
