Hello darlings… It’s so good to have you back here and happy new month!!!!If you follow me on Instagram then you already know I attended Heineken Lagos fashion week last week and if you’re not following me what are you even doing???!!! please do that now by following @thoniabankz. (Side eye to everyone that’s not following and still ignored my handle).
Heineken Lagos fashion week held from 24th-27th of October at Lagos fashion week tents at oniru which is a new venue because last year it held at Eko Atlantic. It was amazing attending for the second time and despite the whole stress that came with it I miss everything….dressing up, meeting new people, networking and posing for pictures from different angles and even doing interviews. I decided to attend for three days and I’ll be sharing details of what I wore and a few of my favorite designers and truthfully it’s hard because all designers brought their A game.
Day 2- I wore this beautiful yellow suit from @misterwow on Instagram and I love the infusion of the Ankara prints on one side of the suit. This look got a lot of compliments and I’m glad I went with this colour and design.
Day 3- I wore a white set and decided to make the look pop with a red beret, sunglasses and purse. I love this look and I’ll totally rock it again.
Day 4- I ended fashion week with this beautiful dress from @debikheri on Instagram and fam this look got a lot stares and my Afro didn’t make it any easier for people to stop staring and at a point a man called me omawumi ( A Nigerian singer) because according to him I looked so much like her Lol.
I also made it to the best dressed list on Bella naija and that made me so excited.
Some of favorite designers are;
I want to congratulate the organizers and designers for a great and successful show. I can’t even imagine the work and time it took to plan such an event and I hope next year is better than this year in all areas that need improvement. I can’t wait to attend next year and bring all my slay and A game.
I also want to thank all the creatives, photographers I met and everyone that tagged me on pictures they saw of me on different blogs and Instagram pages. I was overwhelmed with so much love.
