The Third day was a repeat of the previous days but I got stuck traffic- yes, again!- and it was worse than the previous day. I arrived at about 6pm and went straight to shooting for my blog after which I posed for some streetstyle shots for different media houses.
My third day outfit was from Maxivive- straight off the runway from the previous day’s show. I loved the outfit because it was very comfortable and also the right colour for me- as I decided to tone things down a bit after the previous day’s outfit.
My favorite looks from the third day are:
Grey : It was a colourful collection I must say. It consisted of looks made from the right mix of chiffon and silk. I loved it!
DNA by Iconic Invanity : It consisted of very feminine, well tailored pieces with intricate beading detail. She didn’t disappoint!
Maxhosa Laduma : This was my first time hearing about him and his label. I loved his use of print on print and the unique knit wear. Lovely collection!
Sophie Zinga : I loved the colour palette, the floral prints and lace with floral motifs.
Nuraniya : I love that attention was paid to detail-beaded arrow detail on the pieces- loved them! Altogether a cohesive collection.
Iola : I loved that the collection was Nigerian themed. The use of the talking drum for introduction was really great. The designer used what looked like adire print on silk in various colours. I also loved the Eyo masquerade detail. It was just brilliant!
Weddings by Mai Atafo : It happened to be the only wedding collection at Lagos Fashion And Design Week this year. It consisted of an array of wedding attires tailored to perfection. The audience was serenaded by a string quartet and soft singing by Kaline. It was indeed amazingly breathtaking. I was taken by the playful mix of colours, the detailed tailoring and eye catching fabric. The closing look was perfection personified. I loved the collection, it was just brilliant!
Andrea Iyamah : I was happy she gave us something different this year. I was wowed from beginning to end. It was a breathtaking collection from the intricate cuts, the spot on choice of fabric, use of soft colours and the accessories- everything worked! Brilliant Collection!
Johnson Johnson : I liked that the collection consisted of suits and blazers, Yoruba Agbada and the traditional style of dress of Ijaw men.
I wouldn’t be just if I didn’t talk about the runway proposal. I bet you, nobody saw it coming! It was really the cutest thing that happened that night and definitely the highlight of my day three. Congratulations to Johnson Iyaye Rotimi, the Creative Director of Johnson Johnson.
