Lagos Fashion And Design Week (LFDW 2017) came to an end about a week ago, and for once in all my years of “Fashion week-ing”, I actually wasn’t an active participant. Shocking right?!
I guess it’s a year of firsts for me. I attended just two out of the four days and even at that, it was like I was barely there.
This year’s LFDW didn’t really do much for me. I’m not sure how to explain it but the excitement that usually comes with fashion week period seemed to have eluded me. Although I was super excited about the Creative lounge, I didn’t get to even experience this (My one regret)
My plan was to attend days 2 to 4 because who attends the first day of fashion week? haha. Although I wasn’t there physically, I was glued to my phone, constantly refreshing and scrolling through my gram trying to get updates and see the street style but even at that, I just wasn’t getting the usual “LFDW” vibes.
It seemed like the people were few, the street style even less and the collections not as interesting as the previous years, but this might just be an unpopular opinion. My unpopular opinion.
But I digress though, just like the title suggests – this isn’t a post about my opinion on LFDW 2017 and neither is it going to be a post dissecting the collections presented at LFDW this year or a runway recap. I might be a fashion enthusiast but I’m no expert so I’ll leave that to the experts.
Instead, I’m taking some inspiration from my fave Leandra Medine and sharing a few looks from LFDW 2017 that I’d readily wear straight off the runway.

LFDW 2017 – Day One.
I sat through the shows on Day two of LFDW and I can confidently say that Grey Projects and Elie Kuame did it for me. I loved every single outfit they put on the runway and with Grey, how bold and colorful they made the runway look with their designs.
For most of the collections from this year’s fashion week, I could only pick out a few stand out pieces that called out to me, so whilst there were definitely more amazing pieces, these were the ones that were up my alley and like the post title says – that I’d definitely wear fresh off the runway without thinking twice about it
P.S – My absolute faves were Post Imperial, Elie Kuame, Grey Projects and Rich Minsi.
