The A/W presentation tagged ‘Identity’  will explore how fashion and dress is expressed in the Nigerian society and how the difficulties of producing locally affects the way in which it is expressed.

Each designer presenting will be designated a space, one in which they can distill these and other themes, engage directly with guests, buyers or editors and exclusively present their Autumn/Winter 2017 Collections.

Guests will have an opportunity to meet the designers on Friday March 31st from 7pm- 9pm as well as interact ask questions with the creative sharing the intricacies behind their Autumn/Winter collection as well as their various interpretation of the theme 'Identity'.

The fashion film, a documentary by Bolaji Kekere-Ekun, Francesca Tiller-Gyado, and Sesu Tilley-Gyado to be screened explores the origins of Lagos Fashion, the traditional fabrics such as Adire and Aso-Oke and the historical events that shaped the ever evolving Lagos fashion scene into what it has become today.
