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.
