The Lagos Fashion & Design Week will be celebrating it’s 6th anniversary this 2016.
The Style House Files initiative launched to nurture, support and grow the Nigerian creative fashion industry and has been doing this consistently in past years.
Now in the 6th year, LFDW will remain dedicated to the growth and promotion of creatives in the industry by nurturing, fine tuning, rewarding their skills and providing them with a solid platform for achieving their goals.
“At the heart of the Lagos Fashion and Design Week platform is the fundamental vision to position Lagos as a global destination for Africa’s finest fashion design talents. Through LFDW, they present their collections, grow their fashion businesses and contribute to the sustainability of Nigeria’s Creative Economy” Omoyemi Akerele creative director and founder of Style House Files revealed the passion behind the Lagos Fashion & Design Week.
The vision of the initiative which debuted in 2011 is to provide on-going support to designers via education, mentorship as well as opportunities to present their work to a larger market.
The 2015 edition featured a remarkable list of designers, including Orange Culture, Mai Atafo, Meena, Lanre Da Silva- Ajayi, Grey, Iconic Invanity, Bridget Awosika, Iamisigo and the LFDW Top 16 Fashion Focus Finalists amongst others.
