ARISE Fashion Week Presents 2018 Showcasing Designers at Exclusive Press Party

Africa’s premier fashion show, ARISE Fashion Week (AFW), is set to deliver one of its most exciting line-ups to date, when it returns to Lagos on March 30th to April 2nd at the Lagos Continental Hotel (formerly Intercontinental Hotel).

The organisers hosted members of the press to an afternoon of cocktails and canapes to reveal the designers that will be showcasing this year as well as the full event schedule. In attendance were designers, models, stylists, media personalities and fashion enthusiasts.

To round off the show, day 3 of AFW 2018 will boast leading designers from both the UK and U.S. Self-taught designer, known for dressing Cardi B, Rihanna and Beyonce, Laquan Smith, will be making his way back to Lagos from the U.S., to showcase his custom-made, bare-to-there fashion.
He will be joined by Ghanaian-British fashion designer, Ozwald Boateng, most known for the transformational impact he’s had on menswear fashion for almost three decades.
The day will also display designs from South African designers Maxhosa by Laduma, Rich Mnisi and Lakhanyo Midingi, while Nigerian icons will include Moofa, Dzyn, House of Nwocha, Maxivive, Sunny Rose, Tokyo James, Maki Oh, Gozel Green, Bridget Awosika, Ere Dappa, Odion Mimonet and Deola Sagoe.
As is the custom, the best of these will be selected to showcase their designs during the New York Fashion Week (NYFW) in September this year.
