Arise Magazine Fashion Week 2011
From the Deola Sagoe collection.
The event was held on the 10th March to the 13th, Sunday March '11. It lived up to expectations and even surpassed mine. Arise Magazine Fashion Week was organised to meet international standards and I was initially surprised and pleasantly shocked by what unfolded before me. It was full of glamour and glitz for the four days it held. The clothes were fantastic and the people, friendly and approachable.
The endless standing on my feet, crouching, kneeling and squatting took its toll on my body but it was worth it. Many thanks to ThisDay Style writer Moji Allen and Seyi Allen, her husband for their generosity. I got to meet a lot of industry people here in Nigeria.
