The Day 1, of the #fshnwknd started with Masterclasses, where upcoming fashion designers, stylist, makeup artists etc, were tutored and shown the tricks of the trade by renowned local and international fashion entrepreneurs’. The aim of the fashion week is to showcase the creativity and richness of the Nigerian indigenous entrepreneur, and also give fashion lovers, a chance to buy from vendors at discounted rates.
There was also a huge vendor market, which had over 500 vendors selling an array of goods, ranging from clothes, shoes, bags, makeup, accessories, beauty products, perfumes, lingerie, inter décor, and various food delicacies. Most of the designers and vendors had their pieces designed with Ankara fabrics, showing the flexibility of the local fabric for all things fashion.
Branded chilled water was provided for free by GT Bank as well as some other branded souvenirs.
Of course, the red carpet was filled with stylishly dressed people, who turned up in their numbers and fashionable outfits. Here are some of the street styles WakeUpAfrica’s cameraman captured.
