Lackadaisical Insouciance: Subconsciously Channeling Lagos Fashion and Design Week…

Nov 7, 2015 | Fashion, Runway, Trends

The upside of spending a whole week watching literally more than 50 shows back to back is…

Some of the really funky trends would seep into your subconscious“..

2 days ago, Thursday to be precise.. I was headed to the Jumia Fashion’s “We Love Style” Fashion Mixer. It was a networking event for mostly creatives in the Fashion industry..

I pulled out an outfit from my wardrobe.. A Floral 3-piece made up of ; Peplum top, City shorts and an over coat/long blazer. It stocked earlier at Zinkata and is one of my favourites..  Here’s how I wore it:


Wearing the long-coat/blazer over the top and shorts felt a bit much.. whilst wearing the top and shorts by itself felt wrong as well.. I toughened the look up by knotting the blazer over my waist.. and it suddenly  felt more laid back yet well put together..Chic?



Then I wonder..Was I drawing inspiration from these shows pictured below subconsciously??
