The Lagos fashion week 2019 has finally drawn to an end, with talented designers showing off their best collections and inspiring fashion trends for 2020.

The designers as usual did a great job and it was pure delight seeing models strut the runway in the creative collections.

The highlights of this year’s Lagos fashion week were the celebrities who walked the runway, some starting and others ending the walk for various designers.

The flash of many celebrities on this year’s runway sure added more glitz and glam to the event, boosting several designers’ collections, but however, on social media, many have opined that upcoming models were denied the opportunity of walking up the ladders of their career through such a big event.

Of course there’s nothing wrong with celebrities walking the runway, they have on past occasions especially when it is for a cause such as charity.

The question is, if celebrities who have no business in the runway keep taking the front row, how then can the models who have dedicated their life to this career break out? How can we get our own Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, and Kendall Jenner if celebrities keep walking the runway instead of professional models?

Models own the runway and should be allowed to blossom from Nigeria and shoot to international heights.

I personally feel that the celebrity-designer relationship is best on red carpets events. That is when celebrities are asked ‘who are you wearing’? And the designer takes all the due shine.

Lagos fashion week was an incredible week of high fashion but I think perhaps we can do better next year to allow upcoming models who have labored and practiced all year to feature in big shows like the just concluded Lagos fashion week 2019 take all the shine on the runway.
