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.
Lisa Folawiyo is a multi-faceted global womenswear and accessories collection.
Designer, Lisa Folawiyo perfected the art of wearing Ankara (local West African cloth) through the use of ornate embellishment. By incorporating texture with this culturally established traditional textile, Lisa Folawiyo transformed the textile and created a globally coveted print. This conceptual and global design hybrid has been the key to Lisa Folawiyo ʼs success.
Fused with its very own African-inspired custom luxury prints, the Lisa Folawiyo collection skillfully delivers contemporary garments. With a strong eye for tailoring and fit, Folawiyo creates feminine and modern silhouettes with nods to traditional African aesthetics.
Each Lisa Folawiyo garment boasts a handcrafted and unique history from inception to construction. Folawiyoʼs expert artisans hand embellish each Lisa Folawiyo piece, on average a 240—hour process that reflects the brandʼs focus on design integrity.
