The Nigerian Student Fashion and Design Week (NSFDW) might have come and gone but anyone who was at the Indoor Sports Hall of the University of Lagos would bear testimony to the beauty, creativity and elegance that defined the event.
What kicked off with an empty runway and melodious tunes soon graduated into a potpourri of designs, colour, creative variation and a fashion spectacle that was thrilling to watch and exciting to appreciate.
The exhibition of stylish designs with that remarkable touch of elegance and Afrocentric appeal that simply cannot be ignored reminded guests at the event that no matter how far the heart strays; a passion for the arts has a way of gravitating towards a crescendo of rebirth and emergence.
