Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2017 kicked off on Wednesday, October 25, with various collections presented by Talented and energetic designers like Ejiro Amos Tafiri, Ugo Monye, Style Temple, and others. The second day of the fashion show witnessed vibrant collections from AboutThatCurvyLife, Samuel Noon, POC, DZYN, GREY, Davido x Orange Culture, Sunny Rose and others.

Themed ‘Africa: Shaping Fashion’s Future’, the 7th edition of the highly anticipated runway show returned with lots of innovative African designs and techniques.

Elie Kuame is a Belgium-born, Ivory Coast-raised, now Paris-based fashion designer and founder of ELIE KUAME COUTURE. Kuame, who is of Ivorian-Lebanese heritage, grew up with a deep respect for and fascination with the femininity, elegance and beauty of the women in his family—especially his mother. In 2006, this admiration for womanhood culminated in the launch of ELIE KUAME COUTURE, an ultra-feminine line of dresses and gowns that are equal parts fairy tale chic and fashion-forward, archi-structure couture. This aesthetic was beautifully executed in Kuame’s SS 16 HYPER FEMME collection with its impressive and intricate bead work, embroidery, and draping.
