Day 3 was more of ‘good’ than fabulous. I was really impressed by the menswear designers but Meena, Andrea Iyamah and Mai Atafo stole the show.

Read on for my recap of Day 3 of  Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week

Iconic Invanity 

I expected a lot of beading a got a lot of meh. I liked it but not as much as her old collection.

Meena has a thing for structure and I like it. The construction and tailoring of her pieces from last night was perfect

Mc Meka

I can’t make up my mind with this collection. It’s very simple and straight to the point. Not sure if I like that or not.

Toju Foyeh

After seeing that collection, I wanted to get married in Toju Foyeh. It was so sexy and so beautiful. The headpieces that came with the dresses were the icing on the cake!

Mai Atafo never disappoints. He had Godwin Strings, this amazing violinist, to provide music for the show and the clothes did not disappoint. Mai’s shows are always entertaining.
