NIGERIAN FASHION WEEK 2012 HIGHLIGHTS. DAY 2&3
Following the theme of the Nigeria Fashion Week 2012 ‘Going Green 2’, the ‘going green collection’ was showcased on the 2nd day of the fashion week.. Since last year, in partnership with the Federal Ministry of the Environment, the NFW has been drawing awareness to climate change issues. This year, most of the designers participating in the fashion week contributed garments and accessories made from recycled materials to the ‘going green collection’. Environmental activist, Desmond Majekodunmi was Special Guest/Speaker at the ‘going green collection’
