Lagos, of all things.
Joan Burstein, the founder of directional London-based fashion emporium Browns, is considering attending Lagos Fashion Week. Lagos in Africa, the capital of Nigeria. But is fashion from Lagos really relevant to a venerable institution like Browns? A business that – since its launch in 1970 – has served as a springboard for designers like John Galliano or Sonia Rykiel and introduced a certain Giorgio Armani or Jil Sander to London’s fashion circles? It is very much relevant.
