Against the backdrop of the heightened anticipation and preparation that preceded the Nigeria Men’s Fashion Week 2017, we are proud to announce that the three-day event, which held from the 13th to 15th October 2017, was all we hoped for and even more.
Each day of the fashion week brought with it unforgettable moments, which ended in grand style on Sunday 15th October 2017, at the Germaine Auto Center, 4th Roundabout, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The massive turn out from fashion lovers, within the home front and abroad, who came out in their eccentric and Afrocentric attires, once again put Nigeria at the forefront of the global fashion arena, reiterating the commitment of Africans to redefining world fashion.
Kick-started by a Black Carpet Reception, the event was graced by celebrities and fashion aficionados who were decked in tasteful attires, alongside models cum contestants for the Mr Universe Nigeria, who all expressed optimism in winning the coveted crown.
The event was anchored by the crazy Denrele Edun himself, and was filled with celebrities like Mai Atafo, Jon Ogah, Ono Bello, Beverly Osu, to mention just a few. The Runway Moments, which saw major brands like the delectable Oluwatoyin Okoro (all the way from the US), Maxivive, 2107 Couture, 1407, Shop One Tribe, Walker Designs, and a host of others showcasing their best designs, was equally satisfying to watch.
There was no dull moment as contestants stylishly walked the runway in their different attires, ranging from costumes, swim wears and casuals, right down to dapper suits.
The Nigeria Men’s Fashion Week was crowned with The Man Awards, which was met with heightened emotions, as winners in each category excitedly expressed gratitude for being nominated and selected as the deserving winners of the various awards. Some of the winners include SpiceTv, Reo Rules of Coz Bags, Ono Bello and Complete Mag, to mention a few.
Despite the fact that all other contestants put their best foot forward, and the competitiveness of it all, the event ended with Mr. Ogun, @kokowalker clinching the crown and becoming Mr Universe Nigeria, 2017.
We will like to give kudos to the organizers, sponsors and partners who came together to ensure that the show was executed seamlessly. The Nigeria Men’s Fashion Week 2017 went down as one event to remember, with its huge success raising the stakes for the 2018 edition!
