Truth be told, apart from the little snag that is common to most events in Nigeria-keeping to schedule, it was a very well packaged show, that was well attended and that showcased some extraordinarily talented set of people. Like we always reiterate Africa has got so many talents, what we need is the platform to showcase those talents.
The Mtn LF&DW 2011 was the fantastic platform to expose some of Nigeria's great but not too well-known talents, who were mentored prior to the events proper and who showcased their beautiful works at the exhibition throughout the 3 days event (October 26-29, 2011). It afforded many the opportunity to see and interact with those that might probably become the future of fashion & design in Nigeria.
There were also a proper fashion showcase at the same venue-Eko Convention Centre,Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos. The 1st day had Mango, Exclamations by Tomi Rotimi, Phunkafrique by Funke Ogunde & Koke on the Ramp and the 4 brand, all had a marvelous showcase.
