Daily Report : Day 1 AMFW 2012

Arise Magazine Fashion Week is on but not officially –it’s all set but no shows happening yet – and I have few thoughts, wishes and expectation...but hey, things come up after all, man proposes ...yes right, that's it.

Considering all the anticipation towards the show, it’s quite disappointing how with all the hype and drama for the show the organizers seem to be losing proper administrative and logistics skills .

The setting – ambiance, d├ęcor is pretty amazing though and I cannot wait to sit in for a shows. Indeed, it’s been a great effort from the ARISE Magazine and ThisDay team and I really do hope increase comes so we don’t have to deal with our usual sayings of “it’s Nigeria, nothing gets done right”
According to the organizers, the show officially starts to day with designers scheduled for yesterday, 7th to now showcase. List of designers to show today 8th March are;

4:00pm PhunkAfrique(Nigeria
House of Silk (Nigeria)

5:00pm Meena (Nigeria)
Mustafa Hassanali (Tanzania)
Amede (Nigeria)
6:00pm Femi Handbags (Nigeria)
Jini Collections (Nigeria)
7:00pm Taibo Bacar (Mozambique)
Romero Bryan (UK/Jamaica)
8:00pm Imane Ayissi (France/Cameroon)
Bridget Awosika (Nigeria)
Frank Osodi for Bunor Creazioni (Nigeria)
9:00pm Closing music acts

Hope the day/schedule goes as planned because I can’t wait to see Bridget Awosika’s new collection.

Love, kisses and Chanel!
