LA­GOS BRI­DAL FASH­ION WEEK La­gos Bri­dal Fash­ion Week is al­most here! From the 4th to the 6th of May, 2018 at Fed­eral Place, Vic­to­ria Is­land, will host a first of its kind ex­pe­ri­ence for brides and grooms to-be, bri­dal stylists, buy­ers and other key stake­hold­ers, under one roof in La­gos.

The three-day ex­pe­ri­ence will fea­ture a cu­rated list of Pan-African bri­dal de­sign­ers for the daily run­way shows, and brands at the LBFW Bri­dal Bou­tique. The bou­tique will house a col­lec­tion of ven­dors re­tail­ing bri­dal (and wed­ding) items as well as pri­vate rooms for con­sul­ta­tions with de­sign­ers and bri­dal stylists. MAYOWA NI­CHOLAS IN AMER­ICA VOGUE MAY IS­SUE

Nige­rian Su­per Model Mayowa Ni­cholas is fast be­com­ing the ul­ti­mate de­sign­ers muse and has been fea­tured in the May 2018 is­sue of Vogue. From the streets of la­gos to the run­ways to full spread Bill­board fea­tures in New York, our girl Mayowa is keeping the Nige­rian flag soar­ing.

In the may is­sue of Vogue Amer­ica, Mayowa is pho­tographed by Phyl­lis Pos­nick on a stair­way with lambs at her feet. This isn’t mayowa’s first Vogue fea­ture, she has also been fea­ture in Vogue Es­pana and we know this is only the be­gin­ning for this ris­ing su­per model. MOSCHINO X H&M

H&M has a long history of epic fash­ion col­lab­o­ra­tions with lux­ury de­sign brands, bring­ing the very def­i­ni­tion of high­low style to the masses. From Er­dem’s dreamy flo­ral cre­ations to Is­abel Marant’s Parisian chic pieces, the Swedish re­tailer is the medium be­tween up­scale panache and ev­ery­day ease. And, their lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion is no ex­cep­tion to the rule. H&M has an­nounced that they will be link­ing up with Ital­ian fash­ion house Moschino for a new line, called Moschino [tv] H&M. Moschino’s cre­ative direc­tor, Jeremy Scott, will cre­ate womenswear and menswear pieces, plus ac­ces­sories, that are in­clu­sive to all of his fans. ...con­tin­ued from last week

Adding yet more heat to its men’s fash­ion ac­tiv­i­ties, LVMH Moët Hen­nessy Louis Vuit­ton has snagged de­signer Vir­gil Abloh to lead men’s de­sign at Louis Vuit­ton.

Off-White’s founder suc­ceeds Kim Jones in the role and will show his first col­lec­tion in June dur­ing Men’s Fash­ion Week in the French cap­i­tal. What great about this an­nounce­ment is that Abloh has no for­mal train­ing yet will be the new artis­tic direc­tor of one of the big­gest fash­ion house menswear sec­tion and is the French house’s first African-Amer­i­can artis­tic direc­tor.
