GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2013 - Red Carpet and Street Style from Day 1 - October 2013 - BellaNaija022

There’s no business like Showbiz!

And what better way to cement yourself as a global style star except through FASHION. Here at BellaNaija we LOVE fashion, and we make it a point of duty to cover every single fashion event celebrating African designers anywhere, anytime.

As you know, fashion week is in full force all over Africa.

Earlier this month was the 2013 Ghana Fashion and Design Week (click here for Day 1 and Day 2), then last week the GTBank Lagos Fashion and Design Week kicked off and ended with a BANG, up next is the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in South Africa (click here for details) – We will be there LIVE!.

No offense to Ghana or South Africa, but there isn’t a fashion gathering like a Lagos fashion event. BellaNaija Style will be bringing you the good, the bad and oh-my-what were they thinking red carpet and street style looks from the just concluded GTBank LFDW which took place from Wednesday 23rd October 2013 to Saturday 26th October 2013.

If you are yet to see the collections, err…what have you been waiting for, head on to the style page and see some of the trends, colours and silhouettes, designers are presenting for Spring/Summer 2014.

Enjoy!

P.S – BellaNaija Style Watchers, please be kind 😉

    My Naija peeps, the whole country is as filthy as dumpster but you can never beat them where what they wear is concerned. They will be dressed is the latest Stella M., Prada, Gucci but check out where they are coming from, its a pisty. Even the airport of an entire nation does not have common paper towel or toilet tissue for cleaning…Wake up people and smell the coffee, and enough of this picture picture, party here and there and fake celebrities, it time to get down to the nitty gritty and get to work. First, you all should start with cleaning your gutters and drainage system, it is disease infested, sheesh…if you are not onguard, Malaria is at every corner as a result of the dirt and filth and poor drainage system. My eyes are tired of looking upon all these fakeness without substance.

      I really feel you. I also came to this realization. Especially with all these multinationals coming into Nigeria it just makes the country worse. I don’t see any future for Nigeria. You can bring in all the multinationals you want still won’t improve the country. The poor will remain poor and the rich will remain rich and continue all these lavish parties.
      These politicians will gulp money like they will sack them tomorrow and teach their children to do the same. We are not voting for change also, the whole country will vote and nothing will ever change. Powerful people pick the president not us. Just pray to God to help.

      Jaydyte, cool down. No need for insults. People’s dressing reflects their pride and human dignity. At least we Nigerians have that. No toilet paper in the airport? You are a human being like all the people pictured, why don’t you hang out in the airport toilet area and refill the tissue whenever it is needed? Why? because it’s not your job. Same way I think it’s not the job of anyone pictured here. So direct your insults at the right person.

      You want to see people dress ugly? Go to Torino. It will fit your ugly mouth.

      TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU..OUR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT HAS NO VENTILATION AND STINKS TO HIGH HEAVENS…NIGERIANS ARE BECOMING SHALLOWER AND MORE DEBAUCHEROUS BY THE SECOND…PRIORITIES ARE TOTALLY MISPLACED…I AM SO OVER THIS NEEDINESS TO FIT IN AND THE MANES AND MANES OF HORSE HAIR IS GETTING WAY TOO OLD AND FRANKLY QUITE IRRITATING…

    They all look really nice but in my opinion no one is really wearing anything that stands out. Fashion Week in other countries is usually the time people go all out and are creative with their outfits. These outfits are nice but they’re the usual, normal ones. Nothing special. I love Veronica’s outfit though. xx

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      October 29, 2013 at 5:20 pm

      100% agreed. These photographs could have been taken at one
      of those Ojo Ara or Le Petite Marche events and you wouldn’t be
      able to tell the difference. Nobody’s bringing any life to the
      concept of “Fashion Week”, which is quite disappointing and I have
      to agree with the commenter who claims Ghana Fashion Week was more
      interesting.

    where did all the fashion run to? when it is time to dress up and look good they won’t but if its a pool side or house party they will turn up looking like runway models.
