Fanzine Lagos was a collaborative project between Foxall StudioLagos Fashion Week and Enterprise Creative working with 15 emerging talented designers from Nigeria. Foxhall Studio art directed produced and printed in Lagos as part of Fashion DNA, all in one day!

Fanzine Lagos was the first fanzine project initiated as part of a series of fashion workshops by the British Council bringing together the next generation of designers and creatives from emerging fashion cities. The project profiles the best young designers in a city while asking them to consider their brand identity and challenging them to represent it intuitively with limited time and resources. 

The Fashion DNA programme aims to foster stronger links between the British and Nigerian fashion industries. Nigeria's fashion design has been in the global radar since the early 70s with the arrival of their ubiquitous lace and Ankara fabric designs. Its enormous potential (West Africa's fashion consumer market is worth about $16bn) has never really crystallised though as the country lacks an established manufacturing base which allows designers to mass produce and import on a large scale.

High youth unemployment rates and the continued growth of the local middle class means there's a renewed opportunity for Nigeria to focus on developing its fashion industry. Fashion DNA seeks to collaborate with this process by focusing on building the capacity and technological innovation skills of those talented designers and fashion SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) who are pushing the agenda locally.
