THE RATIONALE BEHIND THE BLACK PANTHER & THE IRON MUSICAL THRONE
The graceful Black Panther, an elusive & very powerful animal signifies power, struggles, freedom & empowerment of the black race. The MMR 2013 is celebrating Music & Fashion Icons who have gotten international recognition and as such have put the country (NIGERIA) on the world map.
''Panthers'' are known for their extra-terrestrial strength and these Iconic pioneers are determined men and women who are not only passionate but also believe in hard work.
The IRON THRONE represents the political relationship between both fields (fashion & music) metaphorically. Fashion has always needed music to get to a certain level of acceptance by the public.
And this year, as seen in ''The Game of Thrones'', MMR 2013 is filled with suspense, intrigue and lots of power; the Fashion gurus would literally ride on music to showcase their inherent creativity.
