Nigeria Fashion Week 2012: Runway Photos

Hi Guys,

Last week I attended Nigeria Fashion Week 2012 as a blogger representative for WhatIWear.com. They contacted me asking if I would be interested in covering Street Style at the fashion week for them and boy, was I excited to do so! As soon as they put up the pictures on their site, I will be sure to link it here so you lot can see the street style I was able to capture.

Till then, here are some distinct runway pieces from the designers that I fancied during the shows which ran from the 8th -10th of November. Some of the pictures are a little blurry as the boy (bless him) found it a little difficult photographing swaying models, I hope you enjoy them anyway!

Kosibah

Kosibah is an amazing Nigerian designer that is based in London. He makes a variety of breathtaking dresses and I have been lusting over his wedding dresses in particular for many years. I hope to be filling out one of his creations when ever my big day arrives :-)







Alexandre Alexandre

He is a designer from Mozambique whose forte is majorly men's fashion but he had a good number of female pieces too. 








Tesslo Concepts

Another Nigerian designer whose collection showcased casual, everyday wearable clothes which I quite liked as we all know fashion shows can be a bit OTT.






Kiki Kamanu

Kiki is of Nigerian and American heritage and I found her collection very eccentric and fun. 





Angybell

She is an Ivorian designer whose creative collection, I enjoyed the most. Beautiful, regal pieces in authentic african print, love! 






Alessandro D'Amico

Allesandro is an Italian designer but I sensed some African themes in his designs. Another collection I really enjoyed.




This dress looks like one that Katniss Everdeen, The Girl on Fire (Hunger Games) would wear :-)





Nafytoo

And the last collection is from a Senegalese designer who specializes in lingerie. Her collection was very bold and daring, very "fifty shades of grey" if you like..haha







It was a great three days of fashion and I enjoyed every moment. Did any of the pieces catch your eye?

Peace and Love, 

Y.
