|House of Bunor|
An interesting mix of over 600 guests – ‘lace ladies’, celebrities and Lagos’s finest fashion cognoscenti, gathered to celebrate the seamless fusion of fashion, history and culture. Vintage African lace pieces in intricately woven and colour infused embroidered patterns were on display as part of the African Lace exhibition – collaboration between Vienna Museum of Ethnology and the National Commission for Museums and Monuments, Nigeria.
The selected designers for the project - Folake Folarin Coker of Tiffany Amber, Frank Osodi of House of Bunor, Godwin Mekwuye of Vivid Imagination and Ituen Basi for Ituen Basi all presented a collection deconstructing and representing the lace fabric into modern pieces that were simply a refreshing and mind blowing re-interpretation of Austrian Lace.
