Words Ruth Osime, THISDAY Style Editor
The much anticipated and talked about fashion extravaganza ARISE Magazine Fashion Week (AMFW) is finally over. And what an extravaganza it was! Certainly the biggest fashion event on the African continent, as well as the most covered internationally.
Living up to expectations and then some, the designers and their works were nothing short of sensational - from futuristic ensembles to luxurious evening dresses and avant garde wearable art. Guaranty Trust Bank sponsored the stunning white tent housing the main catwalk, and in addition to the glitz of the shows guests were treated to a cocktail party hosted by Belvedere Vodka every evening.
I would like to seize this opportunity to thank my wonderful team, who gave their all to provide the materials needed for this edition of AMFW, and also the international and local crews, models and designers that collectively made AMFW a resounding success.
