L’Espace hosted the ultimate ‘fash bash’ , with a private dinner sponsored by French champagne house Lanson, in honor of their campaign stars Toke Makinwa, Munachi Abi and Folu Storms, it also served as the official launch of the Loot digital fashion magazine featuring fashion’s favorite IT girl, Fade Ogunro.
A handpicked selection of guests, exclusively invited by the guests of honour included Sika Osei, Andrea Giacciglia, Wana Udobang, Michelle Dede formed the stylish crowd at the dinner. They enjoyed a sumptuous three course meal by Tash Bistro, friendly banter and a seemingly endless flow of Lanson champagne.
Speaking on the magazine, “I LOVE the Loot and the campaign says, ‘#BuyNigerian advocate Fade Ogunro’. It’s very fresh ... different, It’s so stylized and shows the breadth of what fashion can be through the offerings of L’Espace.”
On her involvement in the campaign and the event itself Toke enthused, “It was a really gorgeous evening. To be in the midst of all these fabulous people at what we all know to be the hottest spot for fashion in Lagos, and all these influencers in the industry, it was amazing. And I LOVE the Loot as well ! It’s so fun and unapologetic, Fade’s cover is very striking. I really, really am proud of what L’Espace is doing. It’s time someone upped the game, and they are.”
“The L’Espace/LPM team has been leading the way for many years,” Folu Storms of Ndani TV said in her speech, “so I’m not surprised they continue to innovate and lead in the fashion industry. They’ve come a long way from their first LPM’
Chief Tunde Onakoya of TEO Ltd – distributors 0f Lanson – gave a short speech on the history of Fashion and Champagne, as he mischievously hinted on the fusion of both elements within the L’Espace experience moving forward. “So don’t be surprised if on your next shopping trip to L’Espace, we present you with a bottle of Lanson” added Wonu Odunsi , Co-CEO L’Espace.
“We’re really excited about all the amazing things we will be doing here in the new season,” and We’ve been privileged to sit at the front row of Nigeria’s growing fashion industry, and we thank our partners and sponsors as we kick things off to a whole new level.”
