MTN Lagos Fashion Design Week III

Last year, Bridget Awosika’s pristine collection was my favourite of the night and this year was no different. It’s official, she and Jewel By Lisa are my favourite Nigerian high end designers and for this reason, I have combined both their collections in this blog post.

Bridget Awosika’s collection enveloped the stereotypical woman: Graceful with a hint of drama; Angelic with a slight complication; Beautiful nevertheless feisty! Her colour palette remained basic, allowing you to focus entirely on the architectural extravagance of each piece, it was breathtaking.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of JBL on the runway, nevertheless, we got a few shots of the stunning pieces backstage. Feast your eyes the below pieces……

Ps: Jewel By Lisa’s collection ended with Rihanna’s diamonds.. ‘appropriate’ I hear you say considering the highly blinged collection.

Pps: Did I just use the word ‘blinged’? I cringe!!! Lol.

Day 3: LFDW

Without a doubt, the Day 3 schedule at LFDW was my best yet! Grey and Jewel By Lisa were showing and their collections were fantastic. JBL was sweet enough to let me take backstage photos of her collection and best believe when her run through was in progress, everyone and everything else was brought to a standstill. Contrary to what was expected of a top designer, she came off as really lovely and her collection was even more spectacular in reality that it appears in pictures (if that’s even possible). The pieces were heavily beaded and intricate with blocks of black separating the fireworks of colours. They worked wonders on the eye and it was obvious they were worth every penny charged.

I didn’t see much of the Grey collection pre-runway; however I caught the entire collection in the evening and my God was it outstanding! Their complete collection was very rich, extremely simple and gracefully feminine. It was right up my alley with every piece bringing my heart to a satisfying beam. Courtesy of my new friend Adeola, I was introduced to Obi, one of the Grey designers, and then caught up with him after the show. He was refreshingly well mannered and even agreed to take a picture with me.

Jewel By Lisa used almost all the models. Quick changes were crazy!!!

House of Tara did all the makeup. They are amazing artists!

Day 3 was so hectic, I had to call Wura (far right) to help out. Ohh and Daniella (2nd from the left) was in town 😀

IamISIGO designer. Loved her outfit…. and that nail polish, *sigh* Love!

Grey designer, Obi and I.

From here on, I take no credit for the pictures.

This was my favourite Grey outfit…. Amazing! The tailoring was very well executed I’m almost tempted to call it ‘craftsmanship’… Totally awesome! The model appeared to be walking funny, however it was due to no fault of hers. There was a wardrobe malfunction backstage and she held it together very well. Great job!
