Made Magazine latest cover stars,  Taiwo & Kehinde Okunoren (of the Okunoren Twins menswear brand), Adebayo Oke-Lawal (of Orange Culture menswear brand) and entrepreneur Audu Maikori, were among the high profile guests who attended the Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards (JLFA) cocktail party, sponsored by international drinks brand G.H Mumm.

The party also played platform to the unveiling of this year’s JLFA nominees which were selected solely on the criteria of Innovation: their ability to cover new ground and open new frontiers in their fields; Performance: how well they are able to transmute their ideas into commercially viable and critically successful products and Design: an attention to distinction in process, detailing and workmanship.

Notable designers and industry persons were recognised in the categories of Men’s wear, Women’s wear, Accessories, emerging designers, High street retailers/brands, Luxury Retail/brands, Model of the Year, Fashion Creators, Fashion Influencers and Best Media Campaign, with our very own Editor of Made Magazine, Tokyo James nominated for Fashion Stylist of The Year!

The Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards recognises and celebrates the extraordinary ground covered by innovative professionals in the Nigerian fashion scene. The awards were created in response to the absence of indigenous platforms highlighting and rewarding the efforts and skillset in the local fashion industry.

“We’re pleased to partner with a brand that recognises the burgeoning Lagos fashion scene and highlights the continuous efforts of the local fashion industry,” said Creative Director of the Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards, Bolaji Animashaun. “This couldn’t have happened at a better time especially now that Lagos has gained standing as one of the global fashion capitals.”

Here are the finalists of the Jaguar Lagos Fashion Awards as both The Okunoren Twins and Orange Culture go head to head in the Menswear Designer category.
