The kind folks at GT Bank invited me to Lagos, Nigeria to teach a Blogging Masterclass as apart of their Fashion Weekend! In addition to offering master classes, GT Bank gives smaller designers the opportunity to sell their wares to the public during the day, and has fashion shows at night.
Day 1 featured designs by Julien Macdonald, Adama Paris, and Lanre de Silva Ayaji.
Take a look at what guests wore to attend the show:
Fashion Entrepreneur and Blogger Zina Anumudu aka @Ozinna wore a Desire 1709 top, F Ruche skirt, and Brian Atwood pumps. Hot!
Her mother Nkiru Anumudu slays all day! She made a statement in Gareth Pugh pants and a Marie Mercia hat.
This stylista uplifted a sheer shirt and jeans with ruffled Rochas sandals.
These ladies slayed the front row in gorgeous Gele head wraps and matching dresses. They were a vision.
This young man’s printed ensemble and sparkly shoes just about made my night.
And actress Rita Dominic made a statement in plaid and ruffles.
As for me, I wore a Rue 107 bralette, a jacket by Midget Giraffe, and jeans by Nigerian brand Le Victoria – Zephan and Co.
Inside, I greeted various VIP’s, including Segun Agbaje, the Managing Director of GTBank.
Chatted it up with stylist Ugo Mozie.
Smiled with designers and actresses, including Lanre de Silva Ayaji and Rita Dominic.
And took pictures and selfies with Fashion Bomb Readers!
Afterwards, our creative director, Kelley Carter, and I attended a reception, where we met up with Ndidi, the owner of Designers Club Lagos.
More to come on TheBombLife.com! There are WAY more pictures, but I”m boarding my flight to JFK. More to come!
I’ll be updating throughout the week!
