GTBank Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2013 - Tumiila

Tumiila By Tumisola Ladega

So in August I travelled to Nigeria, for audition of the young designer of the year awards. I initially didn't think I got in because they didn't actually contact me till really late. Then half way through the master classes I received an email asking why I wasn't there so I was like OMG. So after all that I had to make a 12 piece collection some for the catwalk and some for the exhibition (i didnt sleep for like a week) , which for me was inspired by PLAY inc. All in all it was the best experience, I got to meet so many amazing designers, models and press! Like I still cant believe my clothes were on the same runway as Tiffany Amber, Tsemaye Binitie and Jewel by Lisa, its just incredible :D
In the end I didn't win the 4 million naira but still I am so gratfull for the experience :)

This is the outfit I wore for a dinner out in London. Again my classic monochrome colour palette, and my awesome vagabond shoes that I got as part of a birthday present. The Indian restaurant was so prestige; Will Smith and Morgan Freeman had eaten there which was really cool :D

Fashion Finest LFW

On Sunday the 15th of September i showed my s/s 13 collection at the off scheduled fashion show in London. This is the same collection I did show at AFLW which got a lot press; like the bbc and elle africa which was super exciting. But now I have been told I got into Lagos Fashion Week which is in October so cross fingers. At the moment we have been working on the new website which will actually be an on-line store so you will all now be able to purchase my clothes direct XD.

The current website is >>>>>>>>

The city that never sleeps

dungerees - asos, top - topshop, shoes - jeffery campbell

As I said in the last post NYC was amazing and I was only there for two days, but next time I aim to go back for a fashion show.

On the 10th of August I showed my collection at Maryland Fashion Week. So on the way there I convinced my mum to stop over in new york for a couple of days. I had been to new york one time before about two years ago and once again it was amazing. Timesquare, Fashion ave everything was just so amazing.
Also I walked past like fifteen limos so I am positive I was sooooo close to at least one famous person like Heidi Klum of maybe even Kim k.

Bringing shutters back

This is what I wore to the inside out photo shoot. You might wonder what that is.... basically it a an organisation that raises awareness for certain causes or people, they do it by taking a black and white portrait photo then print it really big and display it in a public area. LOOOOOL imagine my face just hanging in the high street :'D. Anyway but yeah I tye dyed these shorts and they cam out pretty good :)
