Hope you have your calendars marked because Lagos Fashion Week is back again! That’s right, the event that uses a display of fashion extravaganza to celebrate indigenous craftsmanship from Africa and diaspora, will once again take centre stage to engage the global fashion community.
Making a return for its 12th edition, Lagos Fashion Week is set to hold from the 25th of October, stretching all the way to the 29th of October, 6 pm daily at Federal Palace Hotel.
