Nigeria Fashion Week has always featured bold colors, but this year the focus was on one color in particular -- green.
For the first time in its eight years, Nigeria Fashion Week showcased a collection specifically to create awareness of environmental issues.
"The whole world is going green and that means the whole world is thinking about sustaining our environment," said Lexy Mojo-Eyes, president of Nigeria Fashion Week. "We thought this is our little contribution."
He added: "We came up with the idea of Nigeria Fashion Week 'Going Green.' That means asking designers, expecting designers, to use recycled fashion accessories to be able to make collections that will help us project the idea of going green, to help us bring awareness to people in Nigeria about the importance of a sustainable environment."
