A Walk Through The 2012 Music Meets Runway

We’ve been having our moment here in Nigeria with the growing number of runway shows filling up our calendars. As quickly as one goes, another comes.

As opposed to Arise fashion week, and Lagos Fashion and Design week, Music Meets Runway keeps the number of showcasing designers low. Of course this saves us from being rushed through the collections, giving us the pleasure to appreciate fashion heralded by Nigerian music.

A classic favorite, Lanre Da Silva Ajayi took to the runway in surplus pieces of lace, accompanied by shift dresses and summery colored maxis tailored and hemmed to near-perfection. Rebahia came laid back in practical stripes, lace, leather and art inspired silk tunics. Shakara Couture on the other hand brought her headwear game to the show; Take the stunning fascinations and hats as cue for your 2013 wardrobe wish list.

But let’s not forget the David Bowler duo who went against the grain of womenswear fashion to present a collection for the men, stylishly pairing prints and bold colors in a manner that would suit the fashionista in every man.

And just for the sake of it, here’s a walk through the show in pictures:

You see, it was a good show, even though they initially got everyone pissed by starting hours after the actual time. This is the point where I shouldn’t say “It’s Nigeria”, but actually, it is.

Cheers.
