Day 1 of the the 2011 ARISE Magazine Fashion Week Lagos can be described as the “fashion insider” day. Designers, stylists, models, photographers, makeup artistes, hair stylists and fashion press all converged at the Federal Palace Hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos.

There were no shows scheduled for Day 1 – Thursday 10th March 2011. Instead, it was whirlwind of fittings and accreditation. Everyone was focused on their tasks and gearing up for their respective shows. It was great to see everyone in “work mode” as well.
The day ended with a dinner party for designers at the Lagos Motor Boat Club, Dr SID of the Mo’Hits Crew performed at the event.
The Business of Fashion conference and the first batch of shows are scheduled for today.
As you expect, will be bringing you comprehensive coverage of the AMFW.
