Vanity Fair Italia took a trip into the fashion world of Africa, with a focus on Nigeria. Vanity Fair crew visited Lagos Fashion & Design Week and immediately, they took an interest in the Nigerian Fashion Industry. “You’ll see us back here,” I have repeated all the time while I was in Lagos. “, those were their exact words.
With the African fashion industry making a fast move in the world of fashion, the designers, models, stylists and so on, are definitely not left out. I was stunned by this editorial. It is not the typical ‘European or Paris’ fashion vibe, but that is what makes each culture unique. African Fashion is Unique.
For this shoot, titled- La Mia Africa, we spotted pieces by top and upcoming Nigerian designers such as, Jewel by Lisa, Tiffany Amber, Bridget Awosika, Anita Quansah, Iconic Invanity, Kinabuti and Jess Stephanie.
Styling was done by the gorgeous Veronica Odeka of Vane-Style, Makeup by Bimbe Onakoya. Finally, this shoot was complete with stunning models- Moyin Arowosola and Chika Emmanuel.
