Burgundy Fever

Happy new year guys! How many of us made resolutions and have fallen off track already? Well, I have. Which is why i am not big on resolutions anymore, rather goals and time frames.But the struggle continues I guess. Hoping this year would be a milestone year for me. So many things I intend to achieve career wise, business wise etc Watch this space! Better blogging also! Can I get an amen? 



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.

ORANGE CULTURE KID

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.

Late Thoughts on Lagos Fashion Design Week (LFDW) 2013

Wow!! I have been a very bad blogger. Bad doesn't even cut it. Anyway, my apologies. LFDW held a couple of months back, and it was successful to say the least. It's come to be one of the defining highlights of fashion in Nigeria.



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. 


Menswear

Now, as much as I appreciate fashion as a whole, i can't help but be partial to menswear. 


Orange Culture

Orange culture was the highlight of this year. Taking bold steps in redefining perceptions of menswear and a new found love for prints.



Okunoren Twins

Loved the minimalism of this collection.


Josh Samuels

Last year's young designer winner didn't fail to impress.


Kenneth ize

One of the young designers who brought a refreshing take on menswear.
