Enough of my rants. As with menswear fashion trends burgundy has slowly crept on us. Tired of the different shades of blue? Inject some burgundy. Trust me this won't have you thinking ' what I was thinking ' later on. It's really more of a classic than a trend.

Shirt : Orange Culture
Pants : Bespoke
Shoe : Bespoke
Pad : iPad mini
I can't even begin to rave about how much a fan of orange culture I am (is this correct English?). Let's be honest, menswear can be repetitive and sometimes boring. So refreshing to have a menswear brand which provides an alternative to the usual 'suit and blazer'. Did I mention? Proudly Nigerian as well.
I wore this to the 'Music Meets Runway' show on Saturday. I have come to realize that comfort is a huge component of my personal style, and this is a cool way to dress up, without feeling dressed up.

Fashion Business Series
I was only able to attend on two of the days of the program. I was really excited to attend the Fashion Business Series; a forum of discussions on the fashion industry in Nigeria. I expected to see key players such as Designers, stylists, Fashion editors etc But to my surprise, the turnout wasn't all that. I guess Nigerians are more interested in the glitz and glamour of the fashion shows. Disappointing!
It was quite insightful however. Discussions ranged from ecommerce and fashion, Intellectual property , Public relations , amongst others chaired by Omoyeni Akerele with guests such as Folake Coker (Tiffany Amber), Okunoren twins, Arieta, Shola Shagaya (Konga).
Day 2 @ the Fashion Business Series. Thanks Bella Naija!
OOTD: Week Finale
Young Designers Competition
Alongside fashion shows, LFDW conducts a young designer competition. Designers are selected from all over the country. I was impressed with the final selection. However, hugely disappointed by the selection of the winner. Apparently, most of the audience shared my disappointment.
Now, as much as I appreciate fashion as a whole, i can't help but be partial to menswear.
Orange culture was the highlight of this year. Taking bold steps in redefining perceptions of menswear and a new found love for prints.
Loved the minimalism of this collection.
Last year's young designer winner didn't fail to impress.
One of the young designers who brought a refreshing take on menswear.

Lately,prints have been a huge trend; from runways to high street stores.Here's introducing an exciting new brand; TZAR pushing the boundaries in metrosexuality with its capsule collection of print shirts.In what seems like tiny steps, the menswear fashion scene in Nigeria is on an upward trajectory. This makes me excited.
