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 third day of the fashion show witnessed vibrant collections from AboutThatCurvyLife, Tiffany Amber, Mai Atafo, Lisa Folawiyo, Orange Culture 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.

Andrea Iyamah owned by Nigerian fashion designer Dumebi Iyamah, is a clothing line strongly inspired by color and ethnic cultures.

With a flare for fashion and the arts, she advanced her tailoring skills and educated herself about fashion which later fueled the genesis of the A.I. brand at an early age of 17.

Although Andrea Iyamah is popularly recognized for its eccentric and unique take on swimwear, using vibrant colors and cuts inspired by an array of African cultures, the brand also specializes in ready-to-wear and custom made special event dresses. Strongly influenced by the brand’s African heritage, a blend of retro and various cultures inspired the colors and themes of the first official swimwear collection which launched in 2013.
