Watch The Behind-The-Scenes Video Of This Week’s G.L Cover: Fashion Focused
The Lagos Fashion and Design Week has been a brilliant catalyst in building the Nigerian fashion industry. Annually, LFDW’s Fashion Focus platform offers designers the opportunity to participate in a program where five participants are chosen. The lucky individuals are given the opportunity to attend seminars and classes, as well as paired up with mentors who guide them through the journey. The participants are given the chance to showcase their work amongst established designers at the HLFDW.
Last year, Oluwadamilola Osuade, Ntukokwu Obinna Samuel, Seun Morafa, Moturayo Augusto and Emmanual Okoro emerged as the HLFDW Fashion Focus finalists. The designers, who have undergone mentorship by Nigeria’s top designers, are looking forward to showcasing their collections at the 2017 HLFDW next week.
Guardian Life had a chat with the designers who talk about their LFDW Fashion Focus experience and challenges in the industry thus far.
