The Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016 is slated to take place October 26-29 2016.

The website of the much-anticipated event says “Lagos Fashion and Design Week is a multiday fashion event platform that aims to drive the Nigerian and ultimately, the African fashion industry by bringing together buyers, consumers and the media to view the current collections of African designers in the fashion capital of Lagos, Nigeria.”

If you’re a lover of style, fashion design, modeling, make up artistry and photography, then this is definitely the event for you.

As a leading fashion event on the African fashion calendar, LFDW leads the way with initiatives that support, strengthen and develop the fashion industry. Beyond the runway, the annual event provides a physical platform that’s gradually repositioning fashion as a useful tool for commerce and creativity in Nigeria.
