Speaking on what to expect from headline sponsors, Heineken, Ngozi Nkwoji (Senior Brand Manager, Heineken) stated: “Heineken understands that the journey is important and as much fun as the destination and it takes delight in exploring and creating provoking design solutions. This year’s edition of LFDW is the perfect place to continue celebrating cosmopolitan cities, such as the City of Lagos, which features in Heineken’s “Cities of the world” campaign; opening the door to discover ‘the unexpected’ in the city.”

Speaking on the Fashion Business Series X Retail Exhibition Space, Ronke Adeola (Project Manager, Fashion Business Series) says: “Economically, it has been a challenging year as oil is no longer a sustainable source of the nation’s wealth. It is imperative we diversify and fashion could easily be one of the many opportunities to improve our current economic challenges. The Fashion Business Series aims to create dialogue between those in the fashion and textiles sector, relevant government stakeholders and key members of financial services community, to work towards scaling the fashion industry to a point where it can significantly contribute to the nation’s GDP.

    I think if Heineken is sponsoring LFDW this year, they should at least pour the beer into big round wine/stem glasses for the ladies. More elegant ::))

    Thank goodness Rita dominic has finally taught Lanre dasilva how to apply the red lip stick cos she got it right this time. Ezinne chinata pls ditch dt stupid bag and dt weird glasses, you must always look for something to spoil ur look all in the name of being fashion forward. MTCHEWWWW. Adebayo lawal’s pants are just too tight, looks like what EJ Johnson would wear. Kunbi is just pure class.#BEST DRESSED#
