LDA AT LFDW 2014

Last week, I made a post on the Gt Bank Lagos fashion and design week spotting DZYN COUTURE on Day Two.

I continued following events to the last day and it was like they saved the best for the grand finale!

So many awesome designs on the runway on Day 4 which I will make more posts on but for today’s post am focusing on one Designer that really swept me off my feet- LDA( Lanre Dasilva AJayi)

She did an awesome job with her designs, it’s a celebration of African prints in a sophisticated way.

She said she got inspiration from a city in Nigeria called “Abeokuta” which means under the rock and you can see the reflection on the fabrics she used in her collection.

I love her colors, I Love the fabrics (lace, silk, Ankara silk, Satin), the cuts, the designs and above all I love the prints!

Now enjoy the awesomeness of some of the pictures from the runway:

DZYN AT LFDW 2014

GTBank Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2014 started on the 29th of October and will be on till the 1st of November 2014.

I am not in Lagos currently, so I couldn’t make it to the event but I have been following all the details and happenings at the event online since Day One.

So I was checking out the pictures of designers on the runway on Day Two and one Designer’s pieces caught my attention- DZYN!

I have been following her (Ogwa) brand on Instagram and I put up her designs on my page but she totally blew me up with her designs at LFDW!

From her choice of fabrics, to color selection, the way she mixed those fabrics together to the way they fit like gloves on each model’s body!

I was like OMG!  She killed it!

Her designs are my best designs so far, you could see display of creativity, originality and you can feel that she has the African woman in mind while creating them.

She used different fabric for each and also mixed the fabrics together to make some.

Fabrics include: Raw silk, Jersey, Satin, lace, tulle.

Then the colors:  Peach, Beige, Orange, Blue and gold (Classic)

I also love the trimmings, stones, unique patches! Everything on-point!

You need to see these for yourselves below:
