Over the weekend, Nigerian design label Kinabuti hosted its clients and friends to a special Italian appetizer (Aperitivo Italiano) gathering in Lagos. The event saw in attendance Genevieve Nnaji, Lami Phillips, Veronica Ebie-Odeka and Maje Ayida.

The event also served as an opportunity to relax, mingle and have private viewings and consultations with the designer Caterina Bortolussi.

Recently, the fashion label was selected as one of the three fashion labels to stock its pieces at the newly launched Morongwa House of African Fashion in Johannesburg, South Africa.

    I no sure say I wan wear dis caterina cloth. What is she wearing? I know designers are eccentric but…..Anyway, see how opportunistic oyibos are? Dem done realize say Africans love fashion so they are bringing it to our door step. Even with our own print. The reason I no go panic is because for our fashionista tailors, nobody can outdo their tailoring. They are the best! Ever!
