WEEKENDIN’ WITH MW: ACDF2017 AND GTBANK FASHION WEEKEND.

Over the weekend, I attended the African Cultural and Design Festival and the very much anticipated GTBank Fashion Weekend. Well, here’s how it went;

AFRICAN CULTURE AND DESIGN FESTIVAL 2017

This took place at the Balmoral center, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos. I loved how the entrance looked, you could already feel the artistic vibes from the entrance and the interiors were also good, simple and elegant.

I fell in love with all the artworks, the beauty, diversity in them all and yet you could feel that £EverythingNaArt. While, there, I met Kat of Art House Contemporary and we both decided to have fun with quirky furniture.
