    Please can these so called designers take a course in Public speaking?? She does not sound inspiring at all and the interview lacks passion.
    She is a good designer none-the-less, but plzzzzzz that outfit besides her in the video looks so ugly like an apron for a maid.

    Bella 9ja… you always screen my critical comments so better post this one… I have a right to my views

    Lanre Da Silva tickles my fashion bone every time T. She is one of the few Nigerians that can truly lay claim to the label’Fashion Designer’. She has evolved over the years and her collections would work any side of the ocean. I am yet to see a piece of hers that was badly finished. Her work is inspired and I applaud her for staying true to her calling.

    Too much “ermmmh”!!! Even before she said her name….”ermmh”. Even before said ermh, she said “ermmh”!! So bloody distracting from whatever information she was struggling to pass on.

    I love her her outfit, this woman has been on everyone’s faces since the LFDW , kudos to her marketing strategy..from football vs fashion..although i am not really a fan of the competitive football and fashion talk, I feel it’s more like looking for attention real bad but then back to this video..partnering with Vlisco is very cool, tbh..I have seen better clothes for the Vlisco advert than Lanre Da Silva’s so called evening wear for Vlisco, even the short dress looks somehow. #myopinion
