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.

Expect varying degrees of sheerness – a sleeveless sheer trench from iamISIGO, a sheer printed sheer overlay from Alter Ego and the dress that’ll pop up in every magazine next season: Weiz Dhurm Franklyn’s nearly-bare sheer with floral embellishments for the parts you should probably keep to yourself.
