With only 30 days until the 2019 edition of the Lagos Leather Fair, the countdown is on! #LLF2019 – themed: Advancing the Conversation – will take place from Saturday, September 7 to Sunday, September 8 at Harbour Point, Victoria Island. Here’s what to look forward to, at the third edition of West Africa’s Biggest Fair:
With 70 leather designers from across the country, and a number from the wider continent, this year’s fair will bring together handbag, footwear, accessories, and furniture designers and manufacturers in the leather space – including emerging designers, such asOyani Signature, Lamide Samuel, two of the 2018 winners of the Lagos Leather Fair Emerging Designers competition; established fashion brands such as City Cobbler, Toda Nigeria, St. Davids, Ethnik by Tunde Owolabi and a selection of talented leather designers across the industry.
Whether you’re keen on exploring the industry, or seeking out ways to learn more about operating effectively and creatively in the Nigerian business environment, there’s something for everyone. Dynamic and diverse conversations, from listening to leading local and international retail experts discuss routes to market; to copyright lawyers discussing the approach to protecting one’s work; to a dynamic panel of creatives discussing the role and impact of storytelling in their work – these, amongst other potentially mind-bending conversations, are bound to spark and stir your creative juices.
These hands-on sessions will challenge the ways that you think, create and push the boundaries of the work that you do. This year’s fair will have one in-depth workshop session per day – a space designed for direct engagement with leading leather craftsmen and women. These are a can’t-miss!
Would it even be The Lagos Leather Fair without its signature surprise catwalk shows? Across the two days, runway shows, designed to showcase exhibitor products, will be held at intervals. Each show, with its own unique twist and style, will draw audiences to exciting real-world use cases for their favourite brands.
|LLF2019 promises to be an unforgettable foray into the brilliant world of leather!
