Design Fashion Africa wrapped up its maiden edition with a star-studded fashion show after almost six weeks of intense competition in Lagos. Held at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, on October 5, in partnership with Heineken, the event welcomed a long list of A-list celebrities in the entertainment and fashion industry.
The First Lady of Lagos State, Dr Mrs Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, was also in attendance alongside style stars like Toke Makinwa, Idia Aisien, Kunbi Oyelese, Tosin Ogundadegbe, Ituen Basi, Daala Iruwari, Do2dtun, and more who showed up in jaw-dropping ensembles.
The six finalists from the event had the opportunity to showcase to a celebrity crowd in Lagos, and they wowed them completely. The finalists selected from thousands of applicants utilized their few hours on the runway to make a spectacular introduction of themselves to the African fashion scene.
To get the show started, ace fashion designer Mai Atafo, welcomed guests, then after a couple more speeches, Burna Boy mounted the runway thrilling guest with his popular hits, “Ye” and “Dangote”.
There was another music performance from Tiwa Savage, who gave guests a little shift away from the style display to bless them with her beautiful voice and looks. Design Fashion Africa’s goal remains to showcase upcoming African fashion designers to the world and help them commercialize their craft.
From their maiden edition, they have been able to do this for 10 Lagos designers, along with others who participated in the online design challenge. There was also training for some of the designers, and a marketplace for them to display their outfits and fashion accessories.
