She also described Nigeria as the hub of weddings in Africa and LBFW will showcase the latest in terms of bridal fashion in Nigeria.
“I believe that there is no reason why people from other parts of Africa, at the very least, are not coming into Nigeria to buy stuffs, buy products for their wedding, buy outfits for their wedding,” said Amosun-Dabiri.
“So, those are the kind of markets we’re trying to look at, in terms of capturing patronage. We’re kind of the bridal fashion capital within Africa.”
