Over the last few years, designers Duro Olowu and Maki Oh (among others) have become increasing fixtures on red carpet round-ups. Their common link? Lagos. Last year marked a turning point in the Nigerian capital's fashion history, with Naomi Campbell storming the catwalk at Arise Fashion Week to a front-row of international press followed by Homecoming festival, a three-day fashion and art extravaganza headlined by Skepta. Those with a good eye and a deft hand for design should spend an afternoon sifting through the reams of traditional batik-print fabrics sold at Tejuosho Market. To shop for homegrown Nigerian designers, head to Temple Muse, a lifestyle concept store.
