The fashion center, dubbed the Davinci Fashion Lounge, will provide a trusted space for designers, photographers, and makeup artists among others to network and foster opportunities.

"The Nigerian fashion industry is one of the most lucrative in the world, and as it is booming, we need to take it higher. We are here to provide that platform for a lot of Nigerian youths and upcoming fashion designers and makeup artists. That's the objective of the lounge, " said director Linda Deminguez to THISDAY.

One notable feature of the fashion lounge is the Dyvaciti Fashion Hub. The platform for established and emerging designers showcases their creativity through monthly events and allows them to network with buyers.

A little support can go a long way for aspiring creatives, so we can't imagine what an entire industry under one roof will do for Lagos fashion.
