LFDW 2015 (Day 4): The Best of Backstage, the Frow & Catwalk from the Final Day!

At the final day of Lagos Fashion & Design Week, the very best of style was spied everywhere, from backstage at the event to those seated along the front row and on the models that walked the runway.

And, with Team SPICE on ground to cover all of the action, we couldn’t help but share our sightings. See what we saw here, below;
