Creative Focus – The Event
The Creative Focus Exhibition took place at Golden Gate Restaurant, Ikoyi Lagos. According to the organizers, the aim of the exhibition was to “showcase some of the finest creative minds in Nigeria…to provide an opportunity for them to showcase their work and sell their goods in order to encourage the growing innovative brands“. The event was in some ways a “mini trade fair” and also an exhibition of art and craft. Budding entrepreneurs and artistes thoroughly enjoyed interacting with customers and some exhibitors received offers for investment as well as strong sales. Exhibitors enjoyed a fun day of shopping plus lots of champagne, fine wine and small chops.

Creative Focus is an annual event, the next edition will take place in December 2011. Here is feedback on Creative Focus from a cross section of exhibitors.

      Why do you have to copy someone’s design? Create yours or go buy from the person. Ahn ahn.

    so many packs of human hair in this post, gorgeous!!

    I like j-melo’s embroidery on that kaftan he’s wearing.

    I’m liking the vibe I’m getting from those ‘Hairven’ products, looks good too. I hope it works.

      Lol… Chile! You can make so much money selling the weaves from these girls’ heads.

      Someone can turn selling human hair weaves into his/her career in Nigeria……especially selling that Brazilian thing because Nigerian girls are crazy about them.

  5. Sia

    February 17, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    This post smells of all sort of weaves/ extensions. When will Nigerian girls start wearing their real hair and feel good wearing it?

    God did not make you Brazilian for a purpose so why wear a Brazilian’s hair. What are you hiding from? We need to know why wear other people’s hair on our heads.

    If you do it for a statement, then that is OK. If you are doing it because of what you have seen around you, then you have to work on yourself.

      Na your own hair? LMAO!

      Nigerian women will not wear their own hair just for the same reason that African American’s will not wear theirs!! why? because they think it makes them look chic-er, classier ‘keeping up wit the jones’ that sort of thing! So expecting us to ‘go natural’ is just not going to happen. I think its a personal decision… you cant make any one stop wearing those weaves. but I believe they switch too…sometimes weaves, then braids and back again to weaves… at least thats what I do.

    • Sia

      February 19, 2011 at 10:24 pm

      You don’t have to go natural. I never said “go natural”. I said real hair. It is good to switch it up.
