I have spent a lot of time lamenting the fact that I am getting bored with fashion lately. My fashion apathy comes in two strands. There is the general strand where I just don’t feel any connection to fashion in general. I look at red carpet pictures and I am bored. Everybody seems to have forgotten to bring the drama, the life and the creativity to the table.
The second strand of fashion relates in particular to Nigerian fashion scene. I look at look books and I realise just from photos that the designers have not yet grasped the concept of fit and quality. I know fashion industry in NIgeria is nascent. I hope it keeps growing and maturing.
My prayer that it grows is why I am able to see the beauty in things like the L’Espace Lookbook for 2013. I like what they have done because it looks professional. It also has a clear sense of cohesiveness and concept. You can check out the rest of the images on Bella Naija here.
