Get Ready to Showcase Your Style: Register for the 2011 Lagos Style Week

Lagos Style Week is finally here again and it is aimed at providing a stage for 
new and independent designers in their real authentic African look in high definition.

Even more so, mainstream designers and labels are limited with international presence.
Lagos Style Week will be linking Nigeria’s best emerging designers with today’s top
 fashion buyers as well as worldwide press coverage and clients. LSW can ensure collections 
displayed by designers or labels will be trend-setters throughout seasons in both inner cities 
and suburban towns.
This  Show is going to be hosted by Mannie Of Cool FM and there will be a display 
of 10 design pieces from 5 established & 20 emerging designers.Designers 
who would like to partake in the show can register by visiting
