Hello Everyone, 

Fashion Week is upon us in Lagos, with the #LFW Tents sitting at Prince Alaba Way, Oniru, where the industry would be Shaping Africa's future.  On these streets, glamour, high fashion and street style will intertwine, leaving a delicious aroma in the atmosphere.

Even in the spirit of high fashion, let us not forget to show consideration to fellow fashionistas with the following tips:

  1. LET'S NOT OVERDO 'FASHIONABLY LATE'

While being fashionably late is acceptable for Fashion Week, let us not overdo it such that we miss super amazing pieces at the runway shows.

6. SIT WITH POISE

Ladies, keep your knees and ankles together while sitting in on the runway shows, and try not to cross your legs in a rockstar fashion. You could adopt the Cambridge Cross or the Duchess slant. Better still, sit in such a way that oozes finesse.

7. DITCH THE SUNGLASSES

While sunglasses would look really cool on the #LFW red carpet area, it might be a bit of a faux pas to wear your shades inside the runway tent.
