The Guaranty Trust Bank Lagos Fashion and Design Week is the preeminent showcase for Nigerian designers. Over the first week of this month fashion insiders descended upon the burgeoning fashion and creative scene in Lagos to take in the latest talent. The annual event, now in its fourth year, is a launching pad for independent designers, importantly situated in the economic epicenter of the continent. It’s where Nigerian fashion label Maki Oh gained international recognition and a loyal following and it’s no doubt where future visionaries’ careers are being paved this year. Browse all the collections here (psst to the dudes: Adeju Thompson‘s line is especially wicked).
