The fantastic Mai Atafo closed DAY 2 of the GTB Lagos Fashion and Design Week with an amazing and fun spring/summer 2014 collection.
With Mai Atafo, drama is always expected, you just don’t expect less from him. This presentation was all about HIS & HERS. No discriminations. The girls fiercely walked down the runway in matching menswear – shirts, ties, bow ties and all. Never one to shy away from colours. Mai Atafo’s collection was all about prints which Mai Atafo doesn’t do often. Yes we’ve seen plaids from him but not Ankara. The designer masterfully styled his ankara shirts with plain shirts for visual impact – with boys and girls wearing reverse of each other. Solid Colours – Green, Orange, White, Blue, Cream and Camel. Prints – floral and ankara.
The main highlight of the show were Nollywood Actors – Gbenro Ajibade, Alex Ekubo and Bryan Okwara coming through in super bright blazers – Lime, Orange and Blue with matching white trousers and shoes plus Ene Lawani, former miss Nigeria wearing a camel coloured blazer, fedora hat, blonde hair and cigar. Absolutely sexy. Total fun!
Enjoy the pictures.
