Longtime no blogpost right? Oh well I was busy keeping up with the Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016. If you follow me on Instagram (thesvnflwr), I bet you enjoyed watching my live feeds if not don’t worry I’d try to do better next year. I wrote about my first time experience of the Lagos Fashion and Design Week in this post, with expectations that this year will be better but to my dismay I wasn’t impressed. The only thing I enjoyed about the four day long fashion week was watching the models walk down the runway in amazing pieces. Some designers really blew my mind like Beloiscouture, amede, DZYN, Styletemple, Tsemaye Binitie, Deji Eniola, Andrea Iyamah and OrangeCulture to name a few. Although there weren’t really any new trends but in today’s post I’d be sharing with you fashion trends that were on high rotation on the runway.
There was a lot of this, from slashed by Tia to Bridget Awosika to Ejiro Amos Tafiri and so on. I think it’s time to take the cue and add a ruffled piece to my wardrobe, it’s so chic and girly.
From huge bell sleeves, puffy sleeves to exaggerated sleeves etc the Lagos Fashion and Design Week runway had it all. Designers like Titibello, DZYN, Onalaja had me sleeves lovestruck.
TASSELS AND FRINGES
Yes the fringes are here to stay and it’s squatting it’s nephew tassels. To be sincere I’m really glad about not quitting this trend anytime soon because it’s so much fun, I’m yet to see someone in a fringe or tasseled number that doesn’t just want to keep swaying.
AndreaIyamah and iola brought drama to the runway in form of bags. While AndreaIyamah had cute bags in the sharp of a globe with floral details, iola had models strutting the runway with talking drum bags.
THIGH HIGH SLITS
SOCKS AND SHOE
This wasn’t on high rotation to be sincere. I’m adding this because a lot of people frown at the idea of wearing socks with your shoes in Nigeria but since O’MILUA X VLISCO showed this on our runway here in Lagos, I’m just going to assume they are telling us it’s okay to dress like that and yes I’m taking the cue!!!
This year I payed more attention to the runway shows and I was more impressed about this than the general organization of the whole event. Anyway Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016 is over, so it’s time to go back to my regular routine. Do have an amazing week dear and I wish you a happy new month in advance.
Till next month… xoxo
