GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2013 Ella & Gabby - BellaNaija - October2013004Good morning BN Stylistas! So yesterday, Wednesday 23rd October 2013, was all fashion and no holding back  as the GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2013 kicked off. From different corners of Africa, designers gathered at the Eko Hotel to witness and unveil their signature collections for fashionistas, supporters and buyers to behold.

For day 1 of the highly anticipated fashion week, they had Ella & Gabby, Samson Shoboye, Wiezdum Franklyn, Christie Brown, Wana Sambo, Xclamations, Orente Ayaoba, Alter Ego, Kola Kuddus, Kinabuti, Sunny Rose & Valerie David lined up to showcase their collections. I know, you can’ t wait to see what they unveiled either.

Today, BN Style is going to be bringing you some of the most amazing collections straight from the LFDW2013 runway. So, let’s start with a designer that has not only been giving us amazing couture to behold this year but had pieces from her previous collection on LFDW2013 audience members namely Nkiru Anumudu & Eunice Efole; Ella & Gabby from designer Ada Mgbudem.

The Ella & Gabby collection showcased at the 2013 GTBank LFDW was a continuation of her very much loved Autumn/Winter 2013 collection “Tropical Sophistication“.  The pieces came in universal and vibrant colours ranging from black, green, tan, green, pink and red as well as the brands signature Ankara print and beading & embellishments. The runway showcase saw simple and chic dresses as well as other separates consisting of trousers, skirts and tops all beautifully crafted to suit today’s modern and fashionable woman who is no afraid to be the centre of attention.

Enough talk, check out the collection.

    it’s okay, but nothing different. i think iconic invanity is the best designer so far in nigeria.

      Both designers have different styles and designs, so there’s no comparism even though they may both us Ankara prints.

    its too ready-to-wear. nothing innovative! I don’t think lfdw is living up to my expectations right now, nothing is inspiring me. Weidzhurm is the only collection where my interest has been midly piqued. come on lagos designers!!!

    Her designers re ok, wearable I think… She had better pieces at the Afrucan fashion week London.. But was quiet snobbish when I tried to tell her she designs where cool. Wonder why she acted that way really.. Good luck to all the designers who have there shoulder place highe than earth.. Remember God have you this chance and favor.,,

      I think I can understand why she was snobbish, having read what you have written…*not saying her being snobbish was nice though*

    Ella & Gabby is one of the best designers on the
    continent. The fabrics are marvelous and the style simple and
    clasy. The designer allows the wearer to express herself. Thumbs
    up.
