Within the short period that ex-Nigerian top model Meg Alabi launched her own fashion label called ALABI Couture, she has made remarkable impact.
Her label is fast becoming a household name.Just recently, she returned from the UK where her designs was like hot cake as a lot of big girls wanted to have a piece of her work.
The latest news about Meg revolves around her celebrity event, which would be jointly hosted by the house of gold hospice in Surulere under the leadership of Mrs.Laja Adedoyin.
It is a charity event that is slated to hold inside the house of gold hospice on 11 December 2011.
It would be a fashion show with celebrities also strutting the runway. The Lagos State Government has also given it blessings to the Heart of Gold charity show.
The list of celebs expected on the runway includes Mosun Filani, Munachi Abii,Uti Nwachukwu, Kunle Afolayan,Halima Abubakar,Eucharia Anunobi,Alariwo of Africa,Kate Henshaw,Frank Mba,Yinka Davies,Ufoma Ejenobor,Iyanya and Rykardo Agbor.
Meg told www.niyitabiti.blogspot.com recently that fashion show at the Hospice in December of this year in aid of the children, and I have their enthusiastic support. The show will be focused on the children, to give them fun and excitement.
They will get newly made clothes, and be able to relate with celebrities, the public and the media who will attend. Fabrics for the clothes will be provided by Da Viva Limited, a fast-growing Lagos based company; the design and sewing of these fabrics will be by ‘ALABI’ Couture. The entire show is targeted on the children as they have the opportunity to relate, play and feel love with affections and showers of gifts. We will have celebrities from all works of life, modelling for the children. We would have few companies donating gifts to the Home from time to time.
The brain behind MEG ALABI COUTURE has been involved in the entertainment industry for over two decades; she was a runway model for over 16 years both in and outside Nigeria. At the moment, she is the official chaperone and catwalk instructor for the Nigeria’s Next Supermodel competition. She was recently in London this August to promote my clothing line (ALABI COUTURE) at this year’s Africa Fashion Week 2011.
