The seventh edition of Lagos Fashion and Design Week (LFDW) has been scheduled to hold from October 25 to 28 with the theme ‘Africa: Shaping Fashion’s Future’.

The annual event will feature an exciting four-day line-up, consisting of runway shows, fashion business series, fashion focus talks, and the #HLFDW after party.

“We are excited to be a part of this unique experience once again as Lagos shows the beauty of African fashion to the world and how Africa will shape fashion’s future,” said Franco Maria Maggi, marketing director, Nigerian Breweries while speaking at the press cocktail to kick off this year’s event.

“We are even more excited to showcase the first ever Heineken Africa Inspired Fashion Collection at this year’s Lagos Fashion and Design Week, a demonstration of Heineken’s appreciation of African designs and designers, made possible through a collaborative work between the Heineken East Africa team, global Heineken design team as well as the Nigerian team.

“The same way Heineken has broken borders from its birthplace in Amsterdam, Netherlands to 192 countries around the world, is how we see the African fashion industry and its players breaking boundaries to make huge impact around the world.

“The Lagos Fashion and Design Week is indeed a highly significant platform for Heineken to support African fashion designers to perform their craftsmanship and make their mark in the fashion industry.”
