MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week Spring/Summer 2013: Iconic Invanity, Nigerian Design Label to Watch #LFDW

The Iconic Invanity Spring/Summer 2012 collection, at the just concluded MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week, ranks as one of the best collections we have seen coming out of all of the runways from New York to Paris, London to South Africa and Lagos, so far.

Almost every piece shown on the runway created a sense of urgency, the “gotta have” kind of urgency. The collection had such freshness, innovation, vibrant colors, rich texture and the design details were impeccable. We loved all the beading on beautiful dresses, the beautiful slants on silhouettes that fused both traditional and modern African dress styles, we loved the styling and everything was just on point about the collection.

Iconic Invanity has the cross over appeal that we believe will take it very far both within and outside Africa. Keep an eye on this label. We deem it, based on this collection, one of Nigeria’s design labels to watch.
