Meet some of the brands Exhibiting at The Lagos Leather Fair 2019.

The Lagos Leather Fair is about the best thing that has happened to the Nigerian leather industry. The Fair was birthed out of the need to bring all the major players in the leather industry together under one roof to address the industry’s challenges as well as the way forward.

This year’s edition promises to be bigger than the first two editions combined and will feature a specially curated private investor showcase, exhibitions by leather designers and manufacturers, a great shopping experience, runway presentations, networking opportunities, and knowledge-sharing activities, amongst others. The 2019 edition of the Lagos Leather Fair, tagged #LLF2019, which will take place from Saturday, September 7 to Sunday, September 8, 2019 at The Harbour Point, Victoria Island, is themed: Advancing the Conversation.
