Lagos Fashion Week SS20#HellurrFashionistas

Check out some highlights from Day 3 of Lagos Fashion Week Runway Shows.

MAKI OH

The Maki Oh Collection was branded to cater to women with artistic sensibilities. Some of the pieces from Maki Oh’s Collection, inspired by animation series, The Boondocks, were featured at New York Fashion Week Spring 2020 in September of this year, and some of those pieces featured in this showcase. It was made up of adire fabric, with embellishments such as pearls, fringes and knots. There were also long, flowy, satiny dresses that had an element of ease to it.

Colour Palette: champagnes, greys, blacks, indigos and reds.

EJIRO AMOS TAFIRI

Ejiro Amos Tafiri worked with a colour spectrum of champagnes, purples, mint greens, reds, whites, ivories, blues. The fabrics consisted of damasks, aso-okes, chiffons in very extensively creative patterns. There was this really chill champagne oleku pattern that I liked, in mint. There were sashes and serated detail on a couple of dresses. The mint green and orange dress was my favourite for the collection.

MAI ATAFO

The Mai Atafo Collection featured suits with a lot of lines, including pin stripes. I particularly liked the white and greys ones.

Colour Palette: purples, pinks, blue, reds, yellows, whites, blacks and greys.

There were suits made with tafetta,  damask, cotton, and other material. I also feel like I preferred the tailoring of last year’s Mai collection. But the suits were pretty cool, especially the purple one. I feel like there was purple colour constancy this year, so I’m guessing purple would have stood out for everyone.

ATAFO

The new clothing line launched Mai was an avalanche of checks and traditional pocket balances. The music accompanying this collection was live chorale. The collection started with 3 models wearing white Atafo tee shirts, with check shirts and shorts.

The Collection also  featured a hippie chic multi-check gypsy dress with a retro vibe. The model wore her natural hair in a bun and with a lot of swag.

The collection also featured waistcoats and and check  wrap dresses remniscent of some check dresses from New York Fashion Week S20, which might pick up as a mainstreet trend on the Nigerian streets shortly.

The fabric for the Collection included tafetta, cotton, polyester and other material.

There were a couple of formal traditional wear pieces with varied pocket detail, which was cool. There was also really nice casual wear in cartons with cool  bronze  buttons, in cream and tan.

STYLE TEMPLE

Style Temple was my best showcase for day 3, with its incredibly feminine pieces in one of my favourite colours-rose. This collection was alive and kicking, with its pleated and dramatic skirts, roushing and what not. The other colours on the palette were silver, white, lavender and shimmer.

UGO MONYE

The Ugo Monye Collection was arabian inspired with a military flavour, with capes, berets and caps in burnt orange and brown.

Colour Palette: burnt orange, sepia, brown, black, red, rose.
