EVENT: Lagos Fashion & Design Week (LFDW) 23rd to 26th October 2013

It's about that time of the year, for one of the biggest
fashion events worldwide: Guaranty Trust Bank
(GTBank) wrestled the title sponsorship of the Lagos
Fashion and Design Week from MTN Nigeria, promising
to make it bigger, and better. The fashion week is
scheduled for the 23rd to 26th October 2013.
Founders of Lagos Fashion and Design Week, Style
House Files will host the Fashion Business Series on
October 24th by 9am at Ocean View in collaboration with
GTBank in order to facilitate conversations between key
stakeholders in the Nigerian and Pan African fashion
industry as a useful tool for exchanging ideas,
networking and developing the industry.
Olusegun Aganga (Minister of Industry), and Olusegun
Agbaje (CEO, GTBank) will be speaking at this year's
edition of the Fashion Business Series which will take
place on the 24th of October at Ocean View, Eko Hotel.
Sim Shagaya of Konga.com, Folake Folarin-Coker of
Tiffany Amber, and Style House Files' own Omoyemi
Akerele will also be speaking at this first edition of the
series that can be registered for by professionals in the
fashion industry via email: i[email protected]

Activities preceding, and in preparation of the LFDW
2013 have been underway for several weeks now.
Various young designers have been screened and the
very best of them shortlisted for the Young Designer of
the Year Award who were then trained in Master
Classes by British Council for a week to enhance their
design skills towards their competition during Lagos

crowned the Young Designer of the Year.
The British Council also hosted filmmakers interested in
exploring fashion as a theme in September, in a fashion
film workshop facilitated by Grace Ladoja. Model
castings too have also been held earlier in the month of
