Lagos Fashion and Design Week (LFDW) is a multi-day event platform that aims to elevate the Nigerian and ultimately, the African fashion industry; by bringing together buyers, consumers and the media to view the current collections of African designers.
As a leading fashion event on the African calendar, LFDW leads the way with initiatives that supports, strengthens and develops the industry. Beyond the runway, the annual event provides a physical platform that’s gradually re-positioning fashion as a useful tool for commerce and creativity in Nigeria.
Proudly sponsored by Heineken, this event features:
- LFDW Runway Shows and Presentations featuring new season collections from designers in the African fashion industry
- LFDW Showrooms featuring products, textiles and accessories
- Fashion Focus supported by LFDW Hub – workshops and master classes that facilitate knowledge transfer, information exchange and networking opportunities across board
- Business Series to facilitate conversations with key players from the Nigerian and Pan African fashion industry as a useful tool for exchanging ideas, networking and developing the fashion industry.
