I enjoyed Sophie Hedley’s master class very much, as I came to understand that high end retail is very serious business. ┬áAnyone can get any clothing brand from any store, but you have to ensure consumers come to YOUR own store. Hence, the use of out-of-this-world PR strategy. As PR and Communications for Bicester Village, she expressed a slight hesitation of the Bicester brand expanding to Africa, but I can actually think of a few Nigerians who would love to engage in luxury buying. So, I don’t think the Bicester market is closed to Nigeria or anything­čśŐ

Editor in-Chief of Essence Magazine, ┬á ┬áVanessa Deluca also took a fashion masterclass on ‘Curating content for a Fashion Editorial’. She definitely had that quintessential fashion editor style in her outfit, jewelry and hair cut, and for some reason, she reminded me of Titilope Sonuga, the Poet.

As expected, Ejiro Amos Tafiri’s collection was amazing, consisting of womanly pieces in beautifully bright colours of aqua, pink, purple, champagne and so forth, and an array of fabrics including aso oke, lace, silk and satin. There were pleats and high slits, ┬áand it was a delight to watch the models sway, with their pony tails in dark and blonde extensions.

The Laquan Smith collection was edgy and daring . The slits were incredibly  high, with the models rocking them with their pony tails

Ladunni Lambo’s collection featured interesting blouses made in chiffon and organza, and ┬áthe models wore ponytails and very striking make up.

The Julian MacDonald collection closed the evening with a lot of pizzazz. The collection was fiery, with loads of black and shimmer, dramatic patterns and daring cuts! There was so much confetti in the air as all the models rocked to Diana Ross’s ‘I’m Coming Out’
