No other place could have been a more befitting venue for this year’s Africa Fashion Week Nigeria—the National Theatre, with its rich cultural-historic origin, brought back a sweet nostalgia for its own long-lost glory. Guests were already seated in the large, left-wing auditorium at around 3p.m., fashion photographers continued to jostle with each other directly in front of the runway just so they could get a better ample view of the models as they strut, and there were these massive, intricately designed chandeliers that hung from the ceilings, reminiscent of grand, old-English ballrooms.
The crop of designers that presented their collections were an eclectic mix, from S. Prestige, Veens, O’tra, Designs by Tinu to the Zambian Afrika Wala.
