Lagos leather fair

Lagos Leather Fair is back! And for 2020, you are about to have a virtual experience via LLF Digital.

Lagos Leather Fair 2020 will be a unique experience where participants and exhibitors will connect virtually from October 22nd through 25th October for this year’s edition. 

Themed ‘Re-Defining The Narrative’, LLF Digital will feature a virtual exhibition, live conversations and masterclasses, insightful talks, and a very important roundtable discussion with an array of industry experts, thought leaders and creatives.

The exciting list includes Prof. Yvonne Watson, Laduma Ngxokolo, Alheri Egor-Egbe, Daniel Obasi, Romy Kelly Njeundji, Tara Mulhare and other special guests who will be speaking on topics ranging from sustainability to product design to the power of storytelling to the Made-in-Africa stereotype; and 15-minute practical sessions — designed to inspire creative styling, tips on leveraging technology in the fashion industry, creating impeccable leather products, and much more.

LLF Digital will also feature a trade show styled virtual exhibition showcasing twenty-four (24) leather designers who will present a 6-piece capsule collection. It will give retailers and buyers the opportunity to view the designs of the brands from the comfort of their homes, and connect with the designers, while participating brands will have the opportunity to connect to a wider community of retailers and buyers.

The exhibition will run from Thursday 22nd October to Sunday 25th October 2020 on a carefully curated 3D virtual platform.

Lagos Leather Fair was created in 2017 by Femi Olayebi, founder and creative director of FemiHandbags, a premium luxury line of handbags and accessories “to create a platform for leather designers to showcase their talent, and help connect the dots to change the narrative in a much-misunderstood space”.
