HeinekenLFDW to Open From 25th – 28th October 2017
Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week (HeinekenLFDW) tents will open from the 25th – 28th October 2017 with Runway Shows, Fashion Business Series, Fashion Installations and the #HeinekenLFDW After Party.
Connecting with over 20 million Pan-African fashion insiders, including designers, buyers, retailers, local and international press in the previous year, the annual event returns for its 7th edition tagged, “Africa: Shaping Fashion’s Future”.
The interconnection between traditional African heritage and its re-interpretation into contemporary fashion in defining African fashion as we know it today has been established.
#HeinekenLFDW this season kicks-off with the Fashion Focus Tour and HLFDW Fashion Focus Scouting.
Fashion Focus will commence this season by hosting a series of informative talks facilitated by established creatives across Lagos, Enugu, Port Harcourt and Abuja. It will also be targeted at aspiring and emerging fashion entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 – 35, with a vision to support the professional development of emerging fashion talent in Nigeria.
The seminars, themed – “From Passion to Profit” feature carefully curated talks targeted at opening up the minds of creatives to explore different, and sometimes alternative, ways of making their careers profitable.
Based on the success of the 2016 – 2017 Fashion Focus programme, HLFDW Fashion Focus scouting will continue to take the form of a competitive open process aimed at selecting 5 Fashion Focus candidates.
