So, each season as the fashion world descends to experience the vibrant collection, they also realize that the bar is always raised. From looks of luxury houses to one-of-a-kind pieces under the radar, African culture permeates our fashion world. Blending a mix of futuristic and traditional, Lagos has always been the wave.  And thanks to Vogue photographer Stephen Tayo, we get an exclusive look.
