18-year-old Destiny Nwadire is one of the exciting stories of the Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016.


After showcasing her designs at the 2015 edition, the 18-year-old designer who’s creative director of DNA by Iconic Invanity, London, is on the line-up this year.


“I have developed several techniques in painting, drawing and sculpturing so far which has enabled me to add some of these elements into the collection.


“Inspired by Glitch Art, the interplay of embroidery and beadwork seen throughout the collect signifies the influence of the digital age in fashion”, she told Sync Media.

“I’m excited to turn 18, turning 18 means many things to me. I am eligible to vote; which means that i have a voice and can impact on issues that young people face.

“Having said that however, turning 18 comes with great responsibilities and pressures of real life. This means making wise decisions, and seeking for guidance from God and my family”, said the art student.


Destiny is greatly influenced and inspired by her mother Nancy Nwadire, who’s also a designer.

She is set to unveil her new collection on Friday.
