Plus Size FAshion Week 2018

Opening in Lagos the second edition of the only fashion runway show ever dedicated to Plus Size Models and Apparels. In the light of realities, this will be the first TRULY African fashion runway show! African culture celebrates the healthy looking plus sized woman. She is the everyday woman in the African Office, Shop, Marketplace and on the streets.

Western Fashion Trends has tended to alienate the plus sized African woman, almost to the point of stigmatizing her body size. This fact has tended to question the integrity of conventional African Fashion runways with ‘zero’ sized models strutting the runways being viewed by audiences, 85% of whom are plus sized! This tended to create a divide, between the audience and the fashion show.
