Contrary to Louis Theroux's documentary, Law and Disorder in Lagos which aired last week there is a lot more to Nigeria than poverty and corruption. Africa's most populous nation is home to vibrant cities such as Lagos. Abuja and Port Harcourt. Right now Nigeria is undergoing some sort of mini revolution and the communications industry is booming with sectors such as IT, public relations, media and fashion reaping the benefits. The fashion industry has always been a fascination of mine especially the psychology and sociological impacts on society. Over the last year or so I have seen Nigeria become a real player in the fashion scene and with Lagos Fashion Week an important event on the calender it looks like the country will be known for its style as well as oil. I have decided to celebrate this by featuring five of the most celebrated Nigerian fashionistas who work in different aspects of the industry. Next week I will be featuring Sola Oyebade, the catwalk king who produces fashion shows such as Lagos Fashion Week, Michelle Obi who organises pop-up boutique shops in Nigeria, PR Guru, Arieta Mujay who works for River Island, Ijeoma Ndekwu who writes for blog, Bella Naija and fashion designer, Ngozi Pere-Okorotie. Tomorrow I will kick off with Sola Oyebade.
