25 Oct 2018

It was a new generation takeover as 22-year-old Iona McCreath took to the runway with the latest SS2019 KIKOROMEO collection on Thursday 25thOctober night at Day 1 of Lagos Fashion Week. Iona, who has apprenticed in her mother’s fashion business since birth, took the bow as she presented the brand’s latest collection. Now co-designing with her mother, she is taking the lead on the silhouettes, while her mother works on the textiles and cutting. To celebrate this new way of working they chose baptism by fire in presenting at Lagos Fashion Week, the most influential platform in Africa.

Speaking about her experience Iona said “Lagos is very influential around Africa and acts as a voice of Africa to the world. When people see Africa the first thing they see or hear is Nigerian. That means being able to integrate within the Nigerian market is strategic. It is also very exciting, because of the vibrant entertainment scene, which has helped contemporary arts and culture develop to be at the heart of the economy. Nigerians love fashion and the collection has been very well received”
