The 10 Best Moments from Lagos Fashion Week 2018
A recap of the memorable designs and raw talent showcased at this year's Lagos Fashion Week.
What is Lagos without the energy?
In Africa's most populated city, vigor and vibrancy are what cultivate the energy that keeps the city bustling and thriving, despite the efforts of NEPA. That very same energy was definitely present throughout this season's fashion week shows. Afromodernism, theatrical showmanship, and celebrity appearances were some of the themes in many of the presentations, but never in lieu of genuine and raw design talent.
This curated collection of Africa's finest designers managed to keep the audience attention on a rollercoaster ride of discerning moments throughout the ongoing parade of models and garments. To help digest these moments, I've put together my top 10 from the fashion rollercoaster that was Lagos Fashion Week 2018.

World of WearableArt for L’Officiel USA
Every year New Zealand hosts the World of WearableArt (WOW) Fashion/Art Exhibition, where designers from all over the world create intricately designed garments for the chance to win the Supreme WOW Award at the exhibition’s extravagant Awards Night ceremony.
This year WOW celebrated 30 years of “taking art off the wall and onto the human form” and in celebration of 30 years, I made it down to Wellington to catch the Awards Night ceremony and watch the eccentrically awesome display. I then worked with the WOW team to select and shoot some of my favorite pieces from the show.
The amount of time and work put into each garment, to me, was reminiscent of the attention and detail put in by the famous ateliers of Paris and Milan to couture garments. So, I wanted to shoot these pieces as such, bold, avant-garde, and bare––a true welding of the worlds of art and fashion.
