What I wore: Arise Magazine Fashion week (AMFW); Day 1

16 Mar

Hey guys,

unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about ‘Arise Magazine Fashion Week’,  that took place in Lagos, Nigeria over the past weekend. The show was pretty amazing, it was quite easily one of the best fashion shows ever held in Nigeria.

Yes there were a few glitches here and there, like shows starting hours late, or my personal favourite, on day 1, which was the press accreditation day, they made us all  report at 10 am to get our press passes and made us wait around till 4pm, before they casually came out and told us to come back the next morning. After waiting around for 6 hours? really? no apology, nothing. Everyone there for a press pass was pretty ticked off, but hey what were we gonna do? We did get them the next morning though but still, *side eye* Every other event  planned for that day was pretty much cancelled, designer’s dinner, performance, all cancelled. Not a great start at all.

day 2 was much better, The show started for real, for real, although 4 hours late, so another major *side eye* moment but when its started, it was pretty cool. I was shooting the event so was pretty exhausted by mid day.

For day one, I wore this cat suit by Viv la resistance and paired it with blue pumps and a tote.

Check in a few days for day 2, where I’ll have exclusive backstage images from the show.


Playsuit: Viv la Resistance

Shoes: Michael Kors
