Hello darlings… It’s so good to have you back here and happy new month!!!! I’m still in shock because 2019 is almost here and this year went so fast but I’m really grateful to God for all he has done and all that he’s going to do. 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 2018 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.
Did you attend Heineken Lagos fashion week? Who were your favorite designers and If you could pick your favorite look from what I wore what’s it going to be? Kindly drop your comments as you know I always love to hear from you. Have an amazing week.
