11 designers presented their collections on day 1 of the Lagos fashion week 2022 runway. Each collection featured 3 to 30+ looks that showcased the designer’s vision, be it femininity, the African culture, and their take on particular techniques and silhouettes. Each of these pieces was crafted with love and expert construction and techniques.

The brand’s ‘Why not now’ collection featured elegant dresses in soft pastel colors, remarkable necklines like asymmetry and off-the-shoulder looks. As well as puff sleeves and hems, pleats, and sculptural silhouettes.
Cute Saint’s collection was titled ‘Omo Eko’ and it featured the brand’s trademark textile design and print in orange, yellow, black, brown, blue, and so on. With long dresses pleated downwards, suits, flowing shirts, pants, and cut-out jumpsuits, the collection seeks to remind us of Lagos’s Eyo history and its beauty.
In this debut women’s wear collection, the Senegalese culture and heritage were prominently showcased. That’s why bright colors like orange, green, and blue with intricate cuts and unmissable silhouettes were used.
