LAGOS, Nigeria; 22 October, 2016

About That Curvy Life proudly powered by tech giant, Intel, is set to make Pan African fashion history with its entry at Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2016. Titled #Aboutthatcurvylife Collective, the runway show will feature five contemporary plus fashion brands consisting of four women’s wear lines and one menswear line. This will be the first time in the history of LFDW that a plus fashion show would take to the catwalk

The official announcement was made at a press gathering of writers, presenters, bloggers and fashion influencers held at the ZAZAII showroom in Victoria Island. The purpose of the conference was to announce the selected brands set to showcase in the collective, namely; Maki Olugbile for Makioba, Osa Aisien for MaBello Clothier, Tobi Ogundipe for Tosfa, Aisha Achonu for Aisha Abu-Bakr Luxury and Matthew Idang for Assian– each designer will be presenting 6 looks, culminating into a 30-piece strong catwalk.

The designers of the collective were handpicked by Ms Ngwube on the basis of their creativity and passion for their craft. Each designer expressed their excitement in taking part in the groundbreaking collective and their aspiration for the local plus size fashion industry. They have also been working with veteran model, Andy Ogbechi of AA Squared Network whose expertise has proved invaluable for the models who will be hitting the catwalk. Style Mania Magazine Editor, Godson Ukaegbu is also working with the designers, overseeing their process, ensuring their first outing at fashion week goes well.

The #Aboutthatcurvylife Collective is showing on Wednesday the 26th of October at Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week’s Runway Tent in Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island and will also be part of the X retail experience with our ATCL x POPUPPLUS sales and exhibition booth .
