09 September 2015   |   2:00 pm

The Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards (JLFA) in collaboration with Jaguar Lagos unveiled the list of nominees of the 2015 Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards at Maison Fahrenheit, Victoria Island on the 6th of September, 2015.

The unveiling cocktail party, sponsored by international drinks brand G.H Mumm, was attended by industry heavyweights in both the fashion and music industry including Audu Maikori, former head of Chocolate City, Funmi St. Matthew Daniel of Jumia Fashion, and Taiwo Okunoren of the Okunoren menswear brand. Emerging designers and artisans engaged the distinguished guests while congratulating the newly recognised nominees in the different categories.

The Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards recognises and celebrates the extraordinary ground covered by innovative professionals in the Nigerian fashion scene. The awards were created in response to the absence of indigenous platforms highlighting and rewarding the efforts and skillset in the local fashion industry.

“We’re pleased to partner with a brand that recognises the burgeoning Lagos fashion scene and highlights the continuous efforts of the local fashion industry,” said Creative Director of the Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards, Bolaji Animashaun. “This couldn’t have happened at a better time especially now that Lagos has gained standing as one of the global fashion capitals.”

The finalists of the Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards were selected solely on the criteria of Innovation: their ability to cover new ground and open new frontiers in their fields; Performance: how well they are able to transmute their ideas into commercially viable and critically successful products and Design: an attention to distinction in process, detailing and workmanship. Notable designers and industry persons were recognised in the categories of Men’s wear, Women’s wear, Accessories, emerging designers, High street retailers/brands, Luxury Retail/brands, Model of the Year, Fashion Creators, Fashion Influencers and Best Media Campaign, among others.
