What better way would you define an excellent fashion show than an event where top celebrities alongside established models strut the runway. This was the case at the “Gaga for Fashion” fashion show and runway display where top celebrities and A ‘list actresses like Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Tonto Dikeh, Laide Bakare and some star “models” strut the runway.
The two anchors for the night Missi and Oreka were really at their best and from their attires the show itself needs no introduction as a fashion show. The anchors soon invited Barrister (Dr) Afolabi, the chairman of Aishat Ajoke foundation to the stage to give a welcome address; the Barrister gave a moving address on the reason for the event and the Aishat Ajoke foundation.
The show thereafter kicked off properly with the first set of collections on the runway called “Aunty give me cake” and it was a sign of good things to come from the designers. This was followed by the first performance of the night from Lax, who rendered some hip hop tracks which brought the crowd to their feet. Another set of models were ushered in again on the runway for another set of collections called “Bimpe in wonderland” through which beautiful actress, Tonto Dikeh led other models to transport the audience to wonderland.
Coming after displays by “Bimpe in wonderland” was Godwon who came on stage and left everyone dazzled with his body movement and moves. His performances heralded the next collections called “crazy casuals” and the men were not left out with male models coming up with magnificent designs that were worth having in your wardrobes.
And if all the performances by the previous singers were fascinating, then the performance of the main act of the night, Banky W was hyper-fascinating as the crowd was unstoppable as the ladies’ man took to stage. Banky W did not disappoint them with tracks like you wan “Thief my kele”, “Capable”, the crowd couldn’t help but ask for more so much that one would think he’s in a musical show.
Then we have the evening casuals and collections being show cased. Paul Play was also in the house and his performance was proof of why people love him. And then came the moment everybody has been waiting for; the celebrities on the runway where we had Laide Bakare, Righteous man and the star of the runway Omotola who nearly stole the show away from the designers.
The conveners of the fashion show, Funke and Mariam Afolabi came on stage to give their votes of thanks and that brought the evening to an end and indeed it was a night when fashion and music came to town together.
The fashion show was well attended by eminent personalities like Ambassador Olusola, Barrister (Dr) Afolabi (MON), Agatha Amata, Foluke Daramola and many others.
