Nigerian designers are getting their time in the sun as more and more people, the world over, are realising the creative wealth we have right here in our country. The ‘Wear Nigerian’ movement has gone far and wide with stars like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, supporting our creatives with every outfit she wears.
On her recent trip to Lagos, Temi Otedola decided to support the cause with a very special photoshoot featuring our best and brightest including Maki Oh, Emmy Kasbit and FIA Factory.
“I warned you about a second JTO Takes Lagos feature from my December trip. This time around, I wanted an even greater focus on some of the homegrown Nigerian brands I’m loving right now. Lucky for me I teamed up with photographer Mikey Oshai for this one. Mikey put me on to the colourful and versatile EmmyKasbit for one, and we had a great time spotlighting the best of Nigerian fashion right now.
