On Sunday 28th of September, I was at the Guerlain launch which happened at Victoria Crown Plaza Hotel. It was a classy affair with a lot of wine. I seriously thought they wanted to get us drunk!
Guerlain has been in Nigeria and their products are sold at the Essenza Store in The Palms and other malls. This is their first official launch in Lagos and they plan on branching out and launching in other cities in Africa.
As usual, I never leave you without some event photos. Check them out below!
Ejiro Amos Tafiri
Ejiro Amos Tafiri launched her flagship store on Sunday 28th of September in Ikoyi and it was a BIG affair. Press from all over came to cover the event and the store did not disappoint. It was easy to walk through and take pictures of the clothes. As usual, she delivered class, elegance and a lot of fun as people chatted and shopped away. View pictures below!
I was invited to check out the new LA.X Nigeria store, located at Russand Emporium, off Chevron Drive. LA.X Ngeria is aNigerian high-street brand and they provide everyday clothing infused with ankara and ethic prints. Prices are a little pricey (Pants are N8,000, silk blouses are N7,500 and dresses are N8,000) but I think they are worth it. Got a chance to walk around the store, take a few pictures and explore. See more below!
Dolce & Gabbana
We know this is a bit late but we had a couple of internet troubles over the weekend. As usual, our roundup of the best looks from Milan Fashion Week.
What do you think?
Come back tomorrow for our September Issue Giveaway Announcement!
Morning everyone! We got one of my dear friends, Nike, a fashion design student in Milan, to tell us about her time during Milan Fashion Week. Enjoy! – d3ola
Day 1: Vogue’s Fashion Night Out at Biffi Boutiques.
Biffi Boutique and ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative collaborated for the second time bringing the Beat of Africa to Milan’s Celebration of Vogue’s Fashion Night Out and I got to attend it!
So Deola and I were talking the other day about styling and dressing and fantasy buys and that talk in part made me write this up. In case you don’t know, a fantasy buy is an article of clothing, possibly expensive or hard to find or bespoke that you would buy because of how aesthetically glorious it looks, throwing practical things like cost and functionality aside. So, these are my top Nigerian Made Fantasy Buys for 2014.
1. Deola by Deola Sagoe,
Deola’s 25th anniversary/rebrand collection is glorious by any stretch of the imagination. The dresses are laser cut masterpieces that play with volume and proportion and a bit of peekaboo lace cut outs. The collection is fresh by any stretch of the imagination. But there is this dress in particular that literally makes me salivate. Red and burnished yellow silk, the laser cut, layered petal collar just elevates the dress into stratospheric levels of class.
