The Abuja Fashion Week, a production of the Stag House Fashion, aspires to be a premiere fashion event which will gather media, industry, buyers and consumers to view the current collections of designers in Abuja, Nigeria.
Despite the fact that it is one week to the main show, there is no sign or list anywhere of the participating designers. It seems this show might be more entertainment orientated as opposed to setting a platform for designer development. We hope we are wrong and look forward to a great event.
