THE LAGOS LEATHER FAIR IS BACK, AND THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

A few years ago, the saying, “Buy Nigerian to grow the Naira” became popular, but only a few key players in the fashion industry have made significant steps to make this more achievable for the average Nigerian. One of those people is Femi Olayebi, the founder and CEO of FemiHangbags, a leading leather brand. She went from entrepreneur to sociopreneur, taking a step further to not only design luxury leather handbags, but provide a platform for others to showcase their own products. This was tagged The Lagos Leather Fair. 

Taking off in 2017, the event has reportedly brought together over 120 exhibitors from all over the country, an audience of over 4,500 and helped accrue over ₦25 million in sales. The annual fair features masterclasses, panel discussions and workshops, all centred around expanding the exhibitor’s market reach, facilitating knowledge-sharing conversations and providing consumers with a quality shopping experience.  

What’s great about the Lagos Leather Fair is it’s not just for handbags and footwear designers; those who make furniture and small leather goods are very much encouraged to be a part of it, as well.

The 2019 edition of the Lagos Leather Fair, tagged #LLF2019 and themed ‘Advancing the Conversation’, will take place from Saturday, September 7 to Sunday, September 8, 2019 at The Harbour Point, Victoria Island.
