All The Pictures From The African International Fashion Week Day 1 Report (Pre-show)

Backstage before the show started one could see the work that goes into showcasing fashion on a runway! Work had started behind the scenes at the Oriental hotel, V/I Lagos, venue for the event. From the hair stylists to the makeup artists and the designers who were on their last minute ‘stitch in time’. The models even busied themselves taking selfies, admiring their hairdo and makeup while chatting and catching up.

I was pleasantly surprised to see ‘Bunmi Ademokoya’ ( World’s Best Model 2009)’ she looked really radiant and had only gotten more beautiful over the years.

The main location was the poolside at the open ground of the hotel, a welcome and refreshing change to the indoor fashion-show norm, I must say. Set up, lights, décor and sitting arrangements were being finalised at this time and one could start looking forward to the main show.

Finally it was rehearsal time for the models. I peeped at some of the designs and I could see spectacular prints, Ankara designs and detailed Ankara accessories worth your money.

Here’s to hoping the showcase in itself meets expectations.
