Africa Got Next! Read About My Latest Trip to Lagos Fashion & Design Week!!!

I started this blog as an outlet…Like my lil journal I scribble in before I go nite nite…..To get a chance to share and document fun lil things I discover in fashion, travel, work etc. But then somewhere along the line, Life just kept interrupting and taking completely over & I just kept living, working and getting overwhelmed with the happs ( happenings) that I forget to share & then days turn into weeks, weeks into month... So then here I am again trying to play catch up, and paying my penance to you.

Dear patient readers *besos* …..but been working on making the blog even better, more entertaining and we really gonna have some fun!!!! -got some help and contributors, so we gon' turn this into a grand ol' party & just have all kinds of fun from videos, beauty, confessionals, food, fun, fashion & all things cool

Soooo Back to my First return Post….Figured no better way to launch off the repost-ing than a recap of my recent work trip to Nigeria for the Annual Lagos Fashion Design Week, which is the Official Fashion week in Nigeria. This year LFDW Turned 5 and it was celebrated and put together in conjunction with Heinekein. It was a whirlwind trip and once I got in, I hit the ground running and it was off to work. I had 8 designers assigned to me; House of Marie, Maki Oh,  April by Kunbi, Ade Bakare, Josh Samuels, Kiki Kamanu, Andrea Iyamah swimsuits, and the lovely Toju Foyeh; debuting her bridal collection.
It was a tedious but fun experience. A lot of amazing designers and looks coming out of Africa, made me really proud to see the beauty of our culture transcend and interpreted through Fashion.

Here are a few runway looks from the collections I styled. For complete looks and other designers, updates and happenings from this past FASHION WEEK LAGOS. LOG ON TO: www.lagosfashionanddesignweek.com
