What comes into mind when asked what are the fashion capitals of the world? Paris, New York, London, Milan... all have been in the biz for decades. Every single one of us has dreamed of moving to AT LEAST one of the aformentioned cities. But not all of us feel the same way.
LAGOS // Nigeria's largest city is modern, beautiful, boasts two fashion weeks and a vibrant music scene. Some of our favourite fashion labels include:
◇ @maki.oh ◇ luxury womenswear by designer Amaka Osakwe - with a menswear premiere this year https://www.makioh.com/collections
◇ mojokojouk ◇ streetwear by Koyejo Adesanya, ethically sourced and produced in Nigeria https://mojokojo.com/pages/our-story-mojo-kojo-x-ijoya
◇ @lisafolawiyo_studio ◇ the namesake collection from a true fashion entrepreneur and visionary http://www.lisafolawiyo.com/about/
◇ @nkwo_official ◇ nomadic sustainable womenswear and Dakala Cloth (a technique birthed by NKWO that weaves old materials to form new cloth) http://www.nkwo.design
