Day 4 was by far the most tasking. I experienced simultaneous feelings of pressure, excitement and rage!!!! I was thrown orders from a hundred different angles and was even sworn at because of a slight hiccup in the flow of the show. Behind the scenes was nothing short of mental and consequently, the entire show ended on a bitter sweet note.
Bridget Awosika was showing on the Saturday and her immaculate collection was was a breath of fresh air! Each piece was a pristine white with delicate criss cross stitches running through the fabrics. Like Jewel By Lisa, she was perfectly happy with me snapping away backstage and so I did. Her collection was an exquisite modern day tale of a dainty goddess and I was captivated by her choice of fabrics and particularly the nature of her two piece ensembles. Without a doubt, this was my favourite of the night.
Anita Quansah’s presentation was fascinating. She had her models break dance as the lights flashed and even had a model come out in a white cloth before revealing her final piece. It told of a story of a bejewelled woman amidst a forest of expensive adornments each one of course to the desire of my jewellery box. Definitely the most innovative show of the 4 days.
Here are pictures of the final day at the MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week…
