Lagos Fashion Week Is A Spectacle To The West; For Them It’s Normal

Lagos Fashion Week Is A Spectacle

If you’ve ever been to Lagos, then you will soon realize that there is no such thing as overdressed.

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.
