One of the most anticipated shows at this year’s edition of the MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week was the presentation by British fashion brand, Matthew Williamson. The design team delved into the label’s archive and delivered a spectacular show. We are presented with feather dresses with sequined bodice, lacquer lace frocks, chiffon print dresses and blouses, leather cut-out frocks, Grecian-inspired floor length dresses and pant suits. Romantic, chic and graceful – this collection is a must-see!
Nigerian fashion label, Mai Atafo Inspired unveiled its Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The creative director, Ohimai Atafo kicked off his new collection presentation with ready-to-wear suits for men. Dapper-clad male models strut the runway in light and navy blue suits with dark and white pants. Immediately after showcasing the male collection, we were taken to the bridal world by the designer. For the label’s Weddings by MAI S/S 13 collection, we were presented with a white ball gown with a dramatic centre piece cut, a pink knee-length dress as well as lace gowns. The collection was accessorized with fascinators as well as elbow and waterfall veils. Check out the photos!

Nigerian design label, Jewel by Lisa is always one to look out for during fashion week presentations. We were presented with lots of multi-coloured luxury print outfits which paid homage to the modern day Fulani girl. This Spring/Summer 2013 collection, according to the design label on twitter, is “A Modern day ode to the Fulani tribe”. From long dresses with thigh-high slits to knee length frocks with patterned cuts, this collection is a definitely must-see.
