GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2013: Lanre DaSilva Ajayi presents “Colour Storm”

Published

 on

To be honest, words can’t describe how much I love the collection showcased by Lanre DaSilva Ajayi at the GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2013.

Each piece from the “Colour Storm” collection had a retro, 70s girl, funky upbeat appearance that the designer transformed into today’s modern silhouette. With amazing designs from dresses to trousers, some dresses had a theme of colours & graphic prints that made each piece stand out but pulled the collection together at the same time.

Words do not do the collection justice so how about you see them for yourself.

    Excellent pieces, exposure 100%, outlook 100%, couture 100% – pple that say they are the best in the industry in Nigeria apart from LDA, JBL, Deola Sagoe, TAN, MAKI OH, ITUEN, Iconic Invanity and quite a few that featured in this show. The rest I know send as pe you never leave naija do on int’l show. these brands mentioned above showcase our creativity to the mainstream and global audience. Kudos girs

      Talking crap! Is it by leaving naija and attending international shows that determines you’re a good designer? How many of them are making sales, is it buy fashion show? Abegi

      Someone commented elsewhere that LDA is far too reliant on expensive fabric as opposed to designing. These shapes are far too basic for a designer of her calibre. When she first came on the seen she was so unique that she changed the landscape, but she is either getting lazy or burnt out. She has proven her talent many times over so I know she is capable of better than this.

    This is the best collection of LFW. Lanre keeps bringing her A game to the table. I LOVE the fabric, the designs. I want it all. Sh and Deola Sagoe make my heart skip several beats when I see their designs. This is what it’s about and this is global. Well done LDA!!!!! May the Lord continue to bless and prosper you. * now to gather my coins to go buy one piece* lol

    I will not bash Lanre about this collection. She is a business woman. Enough said.
