LDA by Lanre Da Silva Ajayi

Lanre Da Silva Ajayi is a designer whose point of view can easily be misunderstood in a place like Nigeria without the right models, hair, makeup and the right platform to make every element of her designs come to life. A devotee of the Victorian era, Da Silva’s designs tend to be full of floor length dramatic pieces, florals, laces and silks. Quick designer profile:
