Trends we loved: Colour blocking, Shatter nail polish, Body magic (to hide the folds and love handles), Colored plastic wristwatches, Red soles (fake and real), Red lips (Mac and others), Brazilian weave (in all lengths and textures), Ankara pants (female and male), Buba and Iro (Oleku), Fila, and Champagne popping (never gets out of style).


Fashion Weeks Galore: Fashion took prominence in 2011 with the 4 fashion weeks that held in the city of Lagos; Arise Magazine Fashion Week, MTN Lagos Design and Fashion Week, Nigeria Fashion Week and Lagos and Lagos Style Week.

Red carpet Fashionistas: Eku Edewor, Genevieve Nnaji, Tiwa Savage and Toolz. This quartet of fabulousness sent us in paparazzi frenzy and made fashion young, fun and patriotic.
