AFWN 2015 Designers Mesh featured 23:18Millicent Arebun
Hi darlings. The second edition of AFWN took place last weekend at the Eko Hotel grounds in the city of Lagos and it was a major dose of style overload. Getting into the backstage wasn’t easy because I didn’t have my all-access pass on Saturday but the word “press” and a camera can do wonders in opening doors for you.
The AFWN backstage was a beehive of activity with stylists, designers, models, makeup artist, assistants and interns rushing around in a crazy but coordinated manner. Stepping into the backstage I was awash in sounds, steam, swirls of colors, almost nude flesh and camera flash. Everyone was doing something and no one was standing still, so with the blood in my veins pumping faster in excitement at doing what I love best which is reporting I rushed into the frenzy. I did my part to add to the melee, by snatching outstanding designers and interesting models for interviews and taking snapshots of interesting characters and moments. The results is the pictorials in this post.
