Ok, so a friend of mine told me about the 2 day GT Bank fashion weekendin Lagos because she got an invitiation to attend this 2 day event full with masterclasses by world renowed experts, exhibitions and fun and seeing that she would not be able to attend, she knew that I would love to be there.
I rushed to apply before the deadline, hoping that from far away Abuja I would be able to secure a spot at the masterclasses before the time was up, but yours truely was far overcome by the fashion mavens in the fashion centre, Lagos and sadly I couldn’t secure a spot.
Plan B- Drink in the full 2 days on social media and that we did! the harsh tag #gtbankfashionweekend was trending all weekend and every one to be looked to in fashion and entertainment were all there. The event was multi faceted – There were the masterclass sessions with CEO of Zaron Cosmetics,Oke Maduewesi, American Designer,Tracy Reese; Celebrity makeup artist Sam Fine, Blogger and owner of Fashion Bomb Daily, Claire Sulmers and even the Chief editor of GQ magazine, Dylan Jones was there!
There was also the runway show by fashion designers we know and love, for some of us, the love is still fresh- David Tlale, we love this man’s style and his designs to the moon! others that showed up to astound were Ejiro amos Tafiri, Lanre da Silva Ajayi, Julien McDonald, Taibor Bacar and others like Style Temple who did the Mannequin Challenge right there at the event.
Not forgetting also the red carpet which was hosted by Sharon Ooja and Timini Egbuson.
Was I green with envy? You bet I was! so you know that next time I’ll be getting an invitation! Don’t ask me how!!
…Until then, thanks to @uberstyle, @gtbank @mruduku @poko.studio, @lagosstreetstyle @ameriesblog and so many others whose instagram pictures afforded us a lot of insights to this event!
