The sixth edition of Lagos fashion and design week has been scheduled to hold from October 26 to 29.
The annual event, which attracts over 6,000 fashion insiders, including buyers, retailers, local & international press, celebrities, models, and special guests will feature an exciting four-day line-up, consisting of the fashion business series, LFDW X Retail, the #HeinekenLFDW after party and fashion design talent.
“Heineken Lagos fashion and design week has been an instrumental platform in shaping the city of Lagos, a catalyst in the growth of the Nigerian fashion industry,” said Ngozi Nkwoji, Heineken’s senior brand manager, while speaking on the partnership between LFDW and Heineken.
“It is for this reason we believe it is the perfect place to continue celebrating cosmopolitan cities, such as the city of Lagos, which features in Heineken’s “Shape Your City” campaign; inspiring people to contribute in improving their cities.”
Omoyemi Akerele, executive director and founder of LFDW said: “Throughout the course of the year and continuing this October, our focus has been on ensuring that opportunities abound in the sector for skills acquisition, apparel manufacturing, access to market and more as part of our continued effort to connect the dots within the fashion & economic landscape.
“The underlying vision has always been to move the conversation beyond fashion towards cultivating a hub of fashion businesses that can contribute to Nigeria’s Creative Economy and for the first time since inception, we are hopeful that this can be achieved.”
