Watch: ELLE Fashion Film, Lagos Calling Featuring Supermodel Oluchi

This is Lagos fashion like you've never seen it before

With bag and camera in hand, a rail full of locally sourced and Lagos designs, we took to the streets of Lagos with supermodel Oluchi and our much-loved photographer and collaborator Ricardo Simal to shoot our January 2018 fashion editorial. But, how can one go to Lagos without documenting the buzzing streets and the electric mood in the populated streets? This fashion video directed and filmed by Ricardo Simal sees Oluchi elegantly play in the streets of the Nigerian capital, styled by our fashion editor Dimeji Alara in an Afro-retro themed story.

We can't help but think of films like Touki Bouki and Black Girl, directed by Djibril Mambéty when we watch this film - it truly is a work of art and you can see it below:
