Arise Fashion Week 2019 held their 6th edition in Lagos last week and didn't not disappoint as designers from across the globe turned out to showcase their new collections. Famous faces like Naomi Campbell and Liya Kebede took to the runway and there were even star-studded performances from Wizkid and Wande Cole.
