On Sunday, November 14 2010, fashion label, House of Farrah put on a premiere showcase of their range at the exclusive Leila Fowler boutique in Victoria Island, Lagos. Farrah’s impressive product lines include dresses, kaftans, jackets, bridal wear, menswear, footwear and Swasvoski-encrusted evening bags.

They also offer personal shopping services for the discerning customer. Fatima Aliyu Garba, Creative Director of House of Farrah elaborates: “our aim is to turn out confident, elegant and superbly dressed men and women.” And clearly, she has spared no effort to achieve that aim. All House of Farrah garments are handcrafted using the finest fabrics and materials sourced from all over the world – luxury silks, linen, brocade and Swarovski crystals are all employed liberally to create the most exquisite ready-to-wear and bespoke pieces.

It was the first time ever that the designer would show her collections in Lagos, and judging by the enthusiastic response to the debut event, we can expect to see more of her delectable creations in Nigeria’s de-facto “fashion capital.”

    I like the attention to detail. Even though I haven’t seen the pieces up close, I can tell that a lot of attention was paid to finishing the pieces properly. Well done Fatima.
    I like the pic where you can see Seun in the mirror.
    I see Dumi from my Fashion Branding class @ LCF 🙂

    classy event…and thats where you’ll ALWAYS find Funke Fowler looking lovely.
    not really feeling the clothes, but maybe because its not targeted towards my age group anyway.

    ‘ Hope, the average Joe can afford the outfits.

    there’s no doubt that House of Farrah has impeccable desings. I would, however, use the word ‘luxury’ with caution

      Ewa have you seen these items in person? This clearly does not showcase all of Farrah’s pieces, I’ve been fortunate enough to see many more items from their range, previous exhibitions and most recently in Lagos. If you can’t classify opulent fabrics, swarovski gem stones and other lush trimmings as luxury, then what would you call it? Clearly it is a “higher end” brand, just call a spade a spade. Well done Farrah, you’re doing us Nigerians very proud!!!

    Like we dont have enough luxury retailers in naija as is…the pieces are definitely lovely i am just not sure who her buyers /potential market are in that oversaturated, yet stingy big girls club in Lagos. Besides showing up in to these events, to be photographed by our very own Bellanaija, a good 80% of the guests arent buying jack they are just there to support. entrepreneurs…know your market

      Skiddo, let people who are working hard and not looking for handouts do theirs, while you should please feel free to fill the market that you believe is un-met. We Nigerians can be real finger-pointers while most of us sit on our behinds doing jack. SDMH
