The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, Charles and Camilla hosted a lunchtime reception at St James’ Palace yesterday, for members of the British, Nigerian, Gambian and Ghanaian communities.
The reception was hosted in precedence to their upcoming tour to Gambia, Ghana, and Nigeria and one of the befitting people that represented Nigeria at the event was fashion blogger, and head of JTO Fashion, Temi Otedola.
The Fashionpreneur rocked a lovely African print outfit that she designed herself.
There were also in attendance, models wearing designs from Lagos Fashion Week at the event at St James’ Palace as Lagos Fashion Week officially kicked off on the same day in Lagos, Nigeria.
The designers whose pieces were showcased were Nkwo, whose designs are made in Nigeria from end-to-end with fabrics locally sourced from communities in Northern Nigeria and Eki Orleans, born in a rural town in Germany, raised in Nigeria and now residing in London, her designs are heavily rooted in Africa and a celebration of the links between Nigeria and the UK.
