‘Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week has been an instrumental platform in shaping the city of Lagos, a catalyst in the growth of the Nigerian Fashion Industry. It is for the reason we believe it is perfect place to continue celebrating cosmopolitan cities, such as the City of Lagos, which features in Heineken’s “Shape Your City” campaign; inspiring people to contribute in improving their cities’ remarked Senior Brand Manager’ – Heineken, Mrs. Ngozi Nkwoji on the partnership between LFDW and Heineken.
Led by British Council, the LFDW Fashion Focus official partners, Fashion Focus will commence by hosting a series of informative seminars facilitated by established creatives across Lagos, Enugu, Calabar and Abuja. Targeted at aspiring and emerging fashion entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 – 35, with a vision to support the professional development of emerging fashion talent in Nigeria.
The talks will introduce attendees to the various areas of the fashion industry business, giving them an insight into how it works, and an idea of which area they might like to work in. The talks also aim to build young people’s awareness about job and career opportunities that are largely unexplored in the fashion sector in Nigeria mostly in the backend, relating to management and technical vocations.
LFDW X Retail is also back! Designed to further position retail as a primary tool that contributes to the growth of the Nigerian fashion industry, this initiative will be pushed by the Style House Files #BuyNigerian campaign. Positioned as a commercial hub, guests can shop select African fashion retailers and designers.
