Waje, Hauwa Mukan, Dimeji Alara, Isio Wanogho, Tewa Onasanya & Franka Asindi at the Presentation of New Collections by Ennzo, Mango & Etam in Lagos – All the Photos



On Saturday 30th June 2012, the 2012 maiden edition of the New Collection – an annual event recognizing the most influential brands in fashion, partnered with Martini Sparkling and was held at the Lagos Oriental Ballroom, Lekki, Lagos.

The event which kicked off at 6 PM was hosted by on-air-sensation Hauwa Mukan and saw in attendance some of the biggest names in the Nigerian fashion and entertainment industry including Franka Asindi (Editor, Complete Fashion Magazine), Rekana Sharon Ojong, Vanessa Banigo (Editor, Genevieve Magazine), Dimeji Alara (Editor, Mania Magazine), top super model Isio Wanogho, Tewa Onasanya (Editor, Exquisite Magazine), co-creative director of CLAN Teni Sagoe, Wunika Mukan, fashion designer Emmy Collins and sensational songstress Waje who arrived in a floor length grecian inspired green gown and later changed to a knee length black dress for her stage performance, where she hit every possible high note while performing her new single “Na the Way”. As she mesmerized all guests with her vocals, they were served refreshing glasses of Martini Sparkling.

The fashion presentation by Ennzo, Mango and Etam was a sight to behold as both male and female models strut the runway in exquisite new pieces from the brands which caters tremendously for stylish men, urban women looking for quality pieces and intimate lingerie. The fashion show was styled by two leading Nigerian stylists while Zaron was behind the hair and make-up. Did you miss the event? Awww! Too Bad, but don’t sweat it, BN has got all the photos.

    Looks like a beautiful event. Funmi St. Mathews Daniels has some hot legs. Cute.
    Everyone looked well and relaxed. I would say though that, some of the clothes do not look like they were picked for the right models. Few to none of the outfits modeled above look couture, so a subtle smile would have worked very nicely with the outfits.
    As it is, it just takes away from it and you’re left with hard-faced, non smiling people parading down the walk way. A little swag is sometimes needed.

    pictures are beautiful. I just have noticed something. People dont actually seem to know how to wear shoes.or shoes that fit the style they are trying to potray. And why are some people afraid of pedicure or would i say cream? Especially my rich yoruba aunties?

    What is wrong with a light trench in Nigeria. If trenches can be worn in spring and fall why can’t it be worn in Nigeria. If people can survive in suits in Nigeria why not trenches? All these over sabi people that come here to make comments sef.

    why would anyone in their right mind wear a trench in lagos. that yewande babe must be feeling her own spiritual winter.

  29. Ginika

    July 11, 2012 at 7:59 am

    Did anyone flog anyone of these models before they jumped on the run way? Boning competition, bone thugs and harmony… which reminds me, that one model whose femur seems a tad bit heavy for her fibula needs to eat, it just might break.

    However though, there is something about Chika that makes her standout.

    • Babe

      July 13, 2012 at 4:16 am

      It’s not a fashion parade aka FASHPA or beauty pageant so why should the models have happy faces?

    Thank u Paddy. Sefi-ann, trenches are not actually meant to be worn in winter (rolls eyes) you clearly haven’t experienced a cold winter day. I have been dying to bring my trench coats to Nigeria but all this uncultured people wont let someone rest with their ‘I too don’t know very much’. Personally peace of mind is more important too me so I left em in London.

    • sefi-ann

      July 11, 2012 at 5:34 pm

      cool story.the fact is trench coats, and make sure you read the operative word being ‘COATS’ are worn in cooler climates. you clearly havent experienced a day of heat in Nigeria. So you and your piece of mind have a glorious day wearing a trench coat in 30degree weather.

    • bukioni

      July 15, 2012 at 8:48 am

      Don’t be put off taking a trench coat to Naija. I make and customise clothes and trench coats can easily be adapted to warmer climates.
      If I was restyling one for one of my girls, I would remove the sleeves and make a few alterations so she could wear it as a dress. If it was a shorter trench, she could rock it as a sleeveless top with a pencil skirt or a pair of skinnies. If she wanted to really up the ante, I would make it into a sleeveless playsuit which would look hot with a pair of chunky heeled sandals. Trenches are generally quite lightweight but if the fabric was heavy I’d remove the lining. There are also so many different embellishments I could use to it really elevate it above basic for example I could overlay parts of it with ankara or bead it a la Burberry Spring 2012. That’s why I love restyling clothes it’s a great way of injecting some life back into an ailing wardrobe.

    Common what is wrong with the turtle neck dress? Besides it does not look like a sweater dress. Its more like jersey material. Guys let’s try not to hate
