AFWN have just announced the warm and delectable Miss Abiola Okoya as their Global Goodwill Ambassador for Africa Fashion Week Nigeria 2015. She is one of their greatest sources of support and inspiration.
Ms Abiola Okoya says “I am very excited at being honoured as the Global Goodwill Ambassador of such an international event and it’s also a pleasure working with the founder, Ronke Ademuliyi and the Team; it is an idea whose time has come and i believe it will continue to flourish and gain momentum. Creativity certainly is not lacking in the African community but what is needed is a platform for them to showcase their talent and funding to nurture it, which I believe AFWN will achieve.”
Fury – the temperament of the ocean’s health
Lashing out hard by the hour’s task
Tossed and crashed – washed ashore
Haggard and ragged – where do we go from here?
Battered and bruised, we thread our hopes
Mending our minds but first our sight
For out of the froth of the ocean’s fizz
Aphrodites gleams in deified glory
Now ashore, astride her carriage, he leads by her side
Down the aisle of this island’s track
Sweet enticing words beneath the whispering palms
Caressed by the limbs of the ocean winds
Sea breeze greets in lyrical salutations
– with compliments of Adonis;
Her world is formed anew.
On a raft of compiled hopes and aspirations
Dreaming of Atlantis we dream
With repaired ambitions we prepare our journey
We set sail into new destinations
Against the backdrop of our vision
In pair we sail into the sunset …
To a shore line assured of a new horizon
Down the runway of the ocean-drive
We fashion a dream of a rebirth … AFWN!
