Fashion is a breath of fresh air. Be it a geometrically cut out outfit, a deeply rooted traditional attire, a hip hop infused creative vest or just plain tees and a pair of jeans, exuding the right amount of confidence is all it takes to bring about a revolution.

    (1) What does STYLE mean to you? Style means everything and anything. it all depends on hos you carry your self, your poise, your make up, your shoes, and so on. just creating a look that would make people go “WOW” is enough to tell you what style should be. it enables a person to break the barriers of conformism and, alternatively, connect with something that resonates within them. Style, unquestionably, is an expression of identity and statement. 2) Where you see the African/Nigerian Fashion industry in the next 5 years?When it comes to African inspired fashion we set the pace in Nigeria, the new generation of Nigerian designers have added a modern twist to creativity, using traditional prints to make pieces that appeal to a global audience. I see the fashion industry growing to a level, where it becomes sustainable for the designers, because a lot of our young designers are now creating modern ready-to-wear pieces and clothes for everyday life.3. What is your favourite fashion look and why? My favorite fashion is just simple jean and a tee shirt . As a student, they are the perfect attire for classes to study groups to just relaxing.

      Thank you Augustina.
      Apologies for not arranging to send you your ticket to AFWN today. The rains circumvented a lot of plans.

      To make up for it, I would like to give you a Pre-Gala ticket for tomorrow which is more fun and promises a goody bag, cocktail and other perks.

      The show is slated for 8pm at EKO Hotel (Eko Marquee), beside Ocean View Restaurant, Victoria Island. Please let me know if you can pick up your ticket from the Island tomorrow and a contact number to reach you on.
