Kicking off this year’s activity filled calendar was the Heineken Lagos Fashion Week official Launch Party, held at Heineken House on Friday 4th October, 2019.
Guests were invited to a cocktail reception to mark the beginning of a line up of activities which includes Fashion Business Series (FBS), SheTrades Workshops, Afrexim Creative Academy Workshop, the Fashion & Culture Exchange Africa-Japan (FACE.A-J) Event, Runway Shows and the official #LagosFW after party.
Heineken Lagos Fashion Week returns this year from October 23rd to 26th at the Balmoral Convention Centre, Federal Palace Hotel.
#BeyondCreativity is the overarching theme for #LagosFW 2019. A theme echoed in Fashion Focus Talks across 4 cities – Lagos, Abuja, Kigali and Dakar and demonstrated with the recently concluded Paris Showroom, offering access to market opportunities for African designers. #BeyondCreativity speaks to #LagosFW’s authentic roots, which focuses on generating impact beyond the runway, on fashion with a purpose, moving the fashion conversation forward to a position of economic viability in the continent.
