#AlaraLovesYou…The Red Day Gig
On Saturday, February 13, design and luxury enthusiasts were treated to Valentine inspired open house day-party tagged #AlaraLovesYou, organised by ALARA, an eclectic luxury store in Victoria Island, Lagos.
The concept store hosted a select few to an afternoon of Valentine installations, high fashion, and complimentary-themed treats. For many guests, it was an opportunity to browse from a carefully curated display of objects of African and international origin, whilst they shared their delight at the memorable afternoon.
The quintessentially Lagos crowd was a mix of artists and high society, all savouring the stunning views of the David Adjaye designed retail boutique. Special guest, DJ Obi, played on the ‘in-store’ decks while guests explored the multi-level design gallery amid socialising with each other.
