This one’s for the designers! The Cutting Edge Competition

by Yemi Olowu

Here’s another first from YNaija! It’s clear that we have a passion for young Nigerians, especially those who work daily to break moulds and shatter ceilings. Our Fashion series, ‘Cutting Edge’, came from the desire to celebrate young Nigerians who own start-up businesses in the fashion industry.

Now, YNaija is giving some incredibly talented young designers the opportunity to take part in the first edition of our ‘Cutting Edge’ competition! The winner will get an all expense paid lookbook shoot which will be launched on our site! Yup, we will sort out the models, photography, location, styling and everything else.

We’ve selected four top young designers of the moment – Souza, House of Nwocha, Fablane by Derin and iamISIGO – vote for your favorite in the poll below! Voting will take place over two weeks, after which the poll will be closed, and the winner announced.  Below are a few pictures from each designer to help you make your choice.
