Fashion is huge in Lagos and everybody tries to stand out in the way they dress. Sometimes it just looks a hot mess and sometimes it works. For this collection I have taken basic pieces and added a little Lagos flare mixing materials and texture here and there and adding femininity to basic pieces.
My inspiration for this collection is Lagos life. Everyone I know has a love-hate relationship with this city, including me. Before you touch down the wahala has begun... from your small seat on the plane you see a cluster of shacks, yellow buses, okada and what seems like a million people in one tiny space.
My initial idea for the photoshoot for the collection was to capture to disparity of wealth in the most populous city in Africa, but I just couldn't bear the heat so we captured the Posh side of Lagos. Enjoy!
