Billed to hold from 2pm this Friday December 11, at the Eventistry Lekki Phase One Lagos, the award recorgnises and celebrates organisations and individuals that have contributed positively to societal transformation and have also created a huge impact in people’s lives.
It is also aimed at celebrating young fashion entrepreneurs that are part of the prestigious GMYT fashion academy, thus contributing to societal change through fashion. For Princess Oghene, it is a networking platform to celebrate young designers in grand style “It is important we reward our students who have shown resilience and tremendous improvement in one area or another. These awards will be conferred on them alongside other great organizations and personalities to encourage humanitarians like myself and celebrate us. It is about creating a legacy.”
With the theme as ‘The Untamed” this year’s award will feature a spectacular fashion collection showcase from students of the academy, as Oghene notes “for the fashion show, we are letting the students fly with creativity. So expect to see Avant-gard styles and vibrant colours on the runway, from light pink to lemon yellow, they will be playing with a lot of colours. It will be an amazing fashion show, better than last year and it gets better every year.”
Apart from the fashion show, guests will be treated to some classy musical performances, comedy and other side attractions, what could be more exciting than looking forward to this? It’s a must see.
