Chances are you’ve seen the photos and video clips (Instagram for the win!) from Lagos Fashion and Design Week (LFDW) by now. Our task, then, is simply to wade through the glorious footage, identify the recurring trends, and present them to you as a handy guide through the highlights of S/S’14.

The forecast for spring always includes colour and next spring, we’re going bright. Highlighter hues packed a punch (hello short suit by Washington Roberts!), as did the new colour-blocking (proposed by Grey and Christie Brown). Not big on colour? Make like Lanre Da Silva-Ajayi and tone it down with black. (Top Image: Odio Mimonet)
