There’s something so  delicious about this elaborate bow. This is my favourite piece.   RUSSELL SOLOMON The Russell Solomon collection was filled with sporty pieces, some of the models walking in fros. There were transparent nylon jackets which reminded me of a sleeveless denim jacket, with cuts of transparent nylon that I had as a child.

CYNTHIA ABILA The Cynthia Abila collection had the models strutting to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’. It was an interesting mix of traditional and modern pieces. There were clothes inspired by Rivers state traditional attire, with the quintessential ijaw  head gear. There were also some English pieces in green. I particularly liked the one armed piece.

  LAGOS SPACE PROGRAMME The Lagos Space Programme Collection  had models in slippers, super long waistcoat and pleated pants catwalking to space sounds as the soundtrack. One model wore a kilt, which was really nice. There were also overalls, round neck long sleeved shirts, super casual slippers and lovely pants. The collection played with stripes and other patterns. It was a deliciously casual collection.

NACK This collection started with 2 women holding pestles. This line was a celebration of pop and Nigerian culture, with Nigerian jerseys with white bottoms and with elements from Ijaw and Edo cultures. Nack’s orange jumpsuit was definitely a winner.

HEPHZIBAH Hephzibah was collection that had some oriental elements-layers, frills, purple hues and other features,  with the models grooving to a Nigerian song that had the word ‘technology’. I saw a beautiful dress remniscent of Oscar De La Renta summer dress I have seen from last season.  Lovely inspiration. Jessica Biel wore the Oscar dress in this post

LADUNNI LAMBO The blouses and skirts from this collection were filled with blues, stripes and ‘croppedness’. There was a mix of adire and aso oke, giving a slight traditional but equally modern vibe.
