By | June 18, 2014

 

Hello!!!

Happy New Week!!! May all our dreams and vision for the week be fulfilled by God’s grace! Our prayers are with Nigeria our country and most importantly with the chibok girls. We declare peace into our country and families! Ongoing Brazil World cup, may the best team win (hopefully that’s Nigeria team) amen!

This post is about the fashion show we had for the first set of WC trainees. It was a huge success thanks to Almighty God, great family,friends and team. The fashion show held at No 11 adetayo osho strt, off folagoro strt somolu lagos (WC store). The show officially started out by 3pm by Wunmi Adebayo who gave a brief introduction on WC training school, and explained the essence of the show. We had three wonderful judges : Mrs Tope WIlliams- (C.E.O Martwayne Dynamics, fashion entrepreneur, you can check out her blog: www.fashionbeyondstitches.com),  Mr Adetunji Adebiyi ( C.E.O Rhobes  clothing company , a fast growing fashion outfit and a multi faceted young person , from fashion to public speaking, web site: www.rhobes.com) and the forever stylish Mrs Ngozi Akinyele( Management Consultant, very fashionable , she understands good clothing, she has been of tremendous help to the growth of WC). Special thanks to Mrs Tope Gbenga-Salu she was our MC, and she definitely kept us entertained.

The first designer to show case was Miss Kikelomo Adetula, the name of her collection was BLACK AND WHITE. She had amazing outfits. Kike’s inspiration was Night and Day: she wanted outfits that could transform and be worn either day time or at night. The show stopper for me was the white chord lace crop top, which was worn with a high – low pleated skirt, the outfit was very elegant and different and I could relate the piece to her aesthetic. Below are kike’s designs:

The second designer to show case was Miss Opeyemi Hassan, the name of her collection was RAD( coined from radical). Yemi’s collection was beautifully executed, she had wonderful outfits, her finishing was impeccable, and what I loved most about her collection was you could see clearly that all pieces were from the same collection and could relate to her aesthetic. Below are yemi’s designs:

The third designer to show case was Miss Juliet Iluobe, the name of her collection was DREAM GIRLS. Now Juliet impressed me with this collection, because she worked with a difficult fabric: jersey (it’s one of the most difficult fabric to cut and sew), she had an outfit she mixed jersey and Ankara.  Juliet’s inspiration was: ‘ everyday high street style’. Below are juliet’s designs:

The fourth designer to showcase was Miss Sekinah Alao, the name of her collection was AN-NISA. Her religion (Islam) inspired her; she wanted to show an ideal muslimah look that wasn’t too drab. Sekinah’s outfits were amazing, like every piece had a voice of its own, her choice of fabric, colour palette, styling, was fantastic. Her aesthetic definitely came through her collection, each piece you could identify with her.  Below her sekinah’s designs:

The fifth designer to show case was Miss Nkiru Onyimadu, the name of her collection was STYLE OVER FASHION. What I really loved about nkiru’s collection was the versatility; she had a wide range of designs, she kept the audience entertained. Nkiru got her inspiration from her fabrics. Below are Nkiru’s designs:

The sixth designer to showcase was Mrs Bukky Opara, the name of her collection was SIMPLY CHIC . Mrs Opara challenged herself with her collection, she worked with some difficult fabrics like jersey, stretch satin, I was impressed, because some professionals in the fashion industry don’t know how to handle such fabrics well. The show stopper for me in Mrs Opara’s Collection was the pokadot white n black top (the sleeves of these top was very interesting, a cut and style I have not seen before, the sleeves had an angular shape to it) paired with a high waist yellow skirt. Mrs Opara’s inspiration was simplicity. Below are Mrs Opara’s designs:
