The GTB Fashion Weekend aims at “promoting enterprise” which is theme for this year. The 2nd Edition holds on the 11th and 12th of November. The GTBank Fashion weekend is a free business platform that was created by foremost African Financial Institution, Guaranty Trust Bank plc, as part of its efforts to showcase the best of Africa’s Fashion to a global audience while promoting the effervescent enterprise of the continent’s growing fashion industry.
All roads led to the GTB cocktail event which hosted top media personalities and fashion personality yesterday. It was an evening of fine wine, networking with the creme-de-la-creme with people in the business of fashion.
The event would have been an evening of just “meets and greets” if fun wasn’t included. First, the invitees were wowed at the invitation package. A small white box with “GTB Fashion Weekend” inscribed on it and the orange retro camera which showed films from last year’s activities.
An idea of bringing people who matter in the business of fashion and getting them to grace the front cover of their fantasy magazine holds a memory one can’t forget in a hurry.
Adding to the fun at the event was the fantasy magazine cover the invitees had to pose for when they arrived. Their creativity is to be commended on this one! This is the first fashion event in Nigeria that would feature such a fun and thought-provoking activity. I mean, who wouldn’t want to grace the cover of a magazine?
We had celebrities like Uti Nwachukwu, fashion stylist- Jane Michael Ekanem among others who posed for the fantasy magazine and we couldn’t help but love it!
