On Saturday, 12th of August; 2017, the first edition of the African Urban Fashion Show “Network & Chill fashion hangout”; a build up event to the much anticipated African Urban Fashion Show to come up later in the year. This was done in a bid to show their preparedness in bringing the best of fashion to Ibadan.
The show was a beautiful production which featured styling games, cocktail & canapes, question & answer session & lots of networking.
Most stimulating was the fashion session taken by the guest speaker of the fashion hangout; fashion entrepreneur and blogger Sharon Ojong who among the many nuggets she delivered, emphasized that “defining your profile, your target audience, branding and consistency are key ingredients to success in the industry”.
The atmosphere was a very exciting, interactive and chill one. The Premium luxury Mauve21 lounge in the city of Ibadan acted as the backdrop for the fashion hang out and was hosted by MC. Timi Agbaje. The event was graced by a lovely audience of fashion stylists, models, designers, photographers, enthusiasts and media house reps from Ibadan, Osun and Lagos state.
