    O lawd Jesus it’s a fire! Is this what fashion looks like in Lagos? Lagosians, y’ll need to know Lagos ain’t Jand or yankee the sooner we have some sorta understanding on this, the better. Ah ah too many misses abi una de share am?

    • wth

      October 30, 2014 at 10:43 am

      Even in Jand and yankee, they are still well put together. Most of these people look like homeless folks that are on a robbery mission.

      October 30, 2014 at 2:56 pm

      Choi, pls take it easy…ok, lemme play their side small…..I think the most casual looks captured during the day happened 2hen they were still setting up n the models doing fittings and things….. its d evening looks I worry about…..

    • TrueTalkCritique

      October 30, 2014 at 10:22 pm

      I couldn’t agree more….as in peeps need to understand that avant garde looks should be just what it means…u can’t copy what you see and expect to look good, it has to be u! There are just too many misses…just my opinion!

    October 30, 2014 at 9:20 am

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. too edgy and rugged for my liking, but its good to see people not take themselves too seriously. That said; Dakore does it for me…Nice and chic outfit. Best dressed handsdown

  6. Que

    October 30, 2014 at 9:27 am

    Denola…..it never ends well when you try to wear d entire colour spectrum and shapes at once…
    I prefer Tonye’s casual look earlier…..that dress was ill fitting.

    And this right here,… http://www.bellanaija.com/2014/10/30/gtbank-lagos-fashion-design-week-2014-day-1-tres-chic-street-style-fab-red-carpet/gtbank-lagos-fashion-design-week-2014-street-style-bellanaija-october2014036/ two words…….Baby Yooo!! Ha far nah!

    By and large we still dress the same to EVERY type of event….see Toke like an evening wedding guest… At fashion week, you show up in inspiring fashion, on that note, .my favourite was Bubu Ogisi! Cheers.

      You understand all my issues here. Clicked excitedly to enjoy the deliciousness of seeing my Lag brethren giving me high “fah-shohn” (In Andre Lean Talley’s voice) and I’m now leaving without any satisfaction. Greatly missing Nkiru Anumodu, at least you were sure of the unexpected when she graces the red carpet….

      Hopefully most people featured here (except for the few who properly brought their “A” game on day 1) are saving their serious armour for days 2 & 3.

    To “But that’s none of my business”, it’s the kind of you that promotes poor self esteem. If their yams gives you eye sore then shut it up to prevent that. Afterall, if God says His creations are “perfect,” they are indeed perfect. So keep your sick fashion rule to yourself please.

    My Naija Guys just because you have a skinny legs, does not automatically makes you a model. Wearing overly skinny pants (trousers) screams! Gay and Tacky.
    You better don’t dress like this in Atlanta. (Gay headquarters for black men) or San Francisco.
    Please! There’s a HUGE difference between “Edgy,” “shabby, ” and tacky as f…k
    In their minds, they were going for edgy looks, but it ended up catastrophically tragic.
    All i see is Dakore-she nailed it (going for that Kerry Washington look) and the girl with the shot white dress and “killer” white shoes-she executed her fashion flawlessly, not by fire, or by force.

    The health of this girls hair makes me sad because this is what I see whenever I’m in Lagos. This is what is often hidden beneath all the miles of Indian, Russian, Peruvian etc. hair. Relaxed or natural, nigerian women need to take better care of their hair.

    lmao @omoibo’s comment…. of course all for fashion sakes! like seriously poka dots pants? ha fear catch me sha. Some missed some on point, guess we dont have to get it right all the time. Mayb the essence of it all is just fun (my thinking sha)

    October 30, 2014 at 2:23 pm

    Just like Carrie Bradshaw(SJP in sex and the city) would say…”Fashion week brings out the best and the worst in people… we try to express our inner self the way we know how…FASHION”… it’s exciting to see that our own fashion week has its own thing to it… bravo to Toke, Dakore, Vero O., Nowe.. n the guys..Denola, Noble…. u guys stay slaying…. then for those that dressed like mad people in the name of standing out at fashion week..”I hail ohhh!!!!!”

  32. Ife

    October 30, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    All i see is tacky dressing everywhere. Dakore nailed it tho…. and is it just me or Dimeji Alara seems to be everywhere these days. He looked good too.

  35. jojo

    October 30, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    Most of these people are exhausting to look at not to talk of comment on.

    I like Rita Dominic and Dakore. the men are even worse and need some sort of therapy or a full length mirror or both

    Bring me all your beautiful- your fat and slim, your fashionable and those that drip in fashion faux pas; bring me the very gay and the straight, bring me the short and the tall, the rich and the wannabes, the bleached and the naturals, the repats and the expats, the assos and the pakis; but most of all bring me the True gen X Naijas in all of their fashion forward glories!
