Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2017 Day 4 has come to a close with designers like Bridget Awosika, Christie Brown, Kenneth Nze, Gert Johan Coetzee, Kiki Kimanu IamIsigo and other.
Themed ‘Africa: Shaping Fashion’s Future’, the 7th edition of the highly anticipated runway show returned with lots of innovative African designs and techniques.
The eclectic and unconventional designer Kiki Kamanu shows her ‘dresscentric Spring/Summer 2018 collection with the theme “d’Etre Femme” at the Lagos Fashion and Design Week (LFDW) in Lagos on Saturday, October 28th 2017.
‘d’Etre Femme’ is KIKI KAMANU’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. The designer’s bold line up explores lines, incorporating leather and dramatic silhouettes. This very wearable ‘dresscentric’ collection takes the working woman from the board room to a cocktail party and on to the red carpet.
‘d’Etre Femme’ is sensual and strong. It is exquisite in its raw femininity with a bold seductive edge. With a nod to Japan where her American mother was raised, the designer remakes the iconic Obi belt by incorporating a South American Aztec inspired print with calf skin leather and diamanté in several pieces giving them a contemporary feel. With the catchphrase « J’Adore +234 » we also see the designer giving homage to her Nigerian father’s homeland. Each piece stands alone yet fits effortlessly into every discriminating woman’s wardrobe
