The events of October 20th, 2020 in Lagos, Nigeria will linger in the memories of the nation for a long time. Here at FIA, we stand with the families who lost loved ones and join in solidarity with the resilient youth of our beloved country and continent.
Due to the current situation, it was announced that Lagos Fashion Week(LFW) has been postponed indefinitely. Style House Files the organising body of LFW, rightly interpreted the need for a much calmer and stable environment in which to host the event.
We are also informing our community of artists that we have had to pivot regarding the competition earlier announced based on collections from Lagos Fashion Week. We believe that creativity isn’t cancelled, and in fact should be championed more than ever. Fashion Illustration Africa is proud to announce that its inaugural competition will now feature designs from any fashion week around Africa as long as it was created by an indigenous African fashion brand.
We invite all illustrators and fashion artists from around the continent to make submissions in any medium (digital, watercolours, acrylic, as creative as you dare) and follow the competition rules for a valid entry. We will be announcing the competition formally on Instagram on the 1st of November and we will also be announcing our celebrity judges!
We cant wait to see all your amazing entries!
