Who is ready for the Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design week?
The inaugural Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design is set to launch at Red Door Gallery, from 31st March – 2nd April 2017.
The presentation series is entitled ‘Identity’ and will feature nine designers, who have all to greater or lesser extent, previously traversed notions of identity, modernity, heritage and self-expression in their work.
Executive Producer and founder of the event, Omoyemi Akerele said each designer will be designated a space where they can distill these and other themes, engage directly with guests, including buyers or editors, and most pertinently, present their Autumn/Winter collection for 2017.
Among the nine selected are AAKS, Gozel Green, Kelechi Odu, Lisa Folawiyo, Maki Oh, Orange Culture, Post Imperial, Re’ and Shem paronelli.
Collectively, they are a snapshot of the verve, innovation and creative ambitions seen across the Nigerian Fashion Industry.
Speaking about the forth coming event, Akerele said “The team at Heineken LFDW and our partners, Red Door Gallery and FETS Wallet are super excited. From the outset, our aim has been to create visually dynamic events and commercially profitable opportunities for designers in Nigeria and Across Africa. Expanding to reflect the bi-annual fashion calendar, but in a deliberately organic manner via Autumn/Winter presentation season at Red Door is really exciting.”
