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.
The eccentric brand makes a conscious effort to push boundaries while offering rational fashion to adventurous Nigerian men who aren’t afraid to rock bold designs and out-of-the-box silhouettes.
A decade ago, Maxivive started out with the aim to redefine contemporary menswear which still has its roots grounded in Nigerian tradition, and today, that aim still remains. The designer Babatunde Oyeyemi has a background in child psychology and aims to infuse ideas from that into his designs.
With their androgynous clothes that have a dominantly distressed look to them, Maxivive’s designs are very daring and creative. Genderless clothes are yet to make a grand wave amongst the Nigerian people, therefore it will come as no shock that the general public accepts Maxivive’s designs but might not particularly like it.
