Lagos Fashion & Design Week, 2017 kicks off with a partnership like never before! Designers Consociate partners with the NEPC Human Capital Development Center and Lagos Fashion and Design Week to create ‘The Designer Shirt Project‘, an exclusive Designer Collection with a Retail Pop Up Space during Lagos Fashion and Design Week, 2017.
6 Designers – Andrea Iyamah, Bridget Awosika, Grey, Lisa Folawiyo, Loza Maleombho, and VathiswabyKeji have crafted their take on a Classic Shirt, according to their brand aesthetic. All designs will be manufactured locally by HCDC and sold exclusively at Lagos Fashion & Design Week – over the four day period.
This project developed by Designers Consociate aims to bring to the forefront the work of the NEPC HCDC apparel manufacturing training center, which over the last year has through training, created a skilled set of garment manufacturers, now co-operating as a factory. The aim is to encourage the production of designer garments locally and further maintain the notion that manufacturing locally is indeed possible, equally in large numbers, to the benefit of the Fashion Industry and the economy as a whole
A look at a few of the designs…
All shirts will be available at the Heineken Experience Tent and will retail at N15,000.
