The maiden edition of the Africa Fashion Week Nigeria, an off shoot of the very successful Africa Fashion Week London which is in her 3rd season held on Sunday, May 18, 2014 at the main hall of the Eko Hotel. Victoria Island, Lagos.
Truth be told, all other existing fashion shows had better take heed and that's because the AFWN has arrived with a bang and is going to give all comers a serious run for their money from now on. Many didn't give this fashion showcase a chance to succeed, but on the day of the event and at the end of the day, with what many saw, the only thing most could say was that the organisers did a fantastic job and that they were astounded beyond measure, first by the fantastic organisation that was obvious, then also by the showcase of talents that was displayed.
The AFWN platform was specially created by the founder Ronke Ademiluyi to give the required opportunity to super talented, but unknown designers who without opportunities like this might not have gotten the encouragement, the necessary push and launch pad to make a career out of their passion.
By virtue of the AFWN, many unknown designers who most assuredly would have given many of the well established ones, a big run for their money were discovered. So very soon, prepare to hear about some unknown creative gems taking the scene by storm to the delight of many.
A very big thank you to Senator Daisy Danjuma for her massive support and for her putting her money where her mouth is.
Away from all the 'plenty talk', we were on the red carpet at the event and we got a couple of pictures for your viewing delight. Check them out.
