Orchid Hotels, Lekki, Lagos, played home to the maiden edition of the 2018 Kreate fashion show which took place on Sunday, June 17, 2018.
The fashion event which is the first of its kind saw the coming together of emerging indigenous designers from across Nigeria, and we must say that it was a spectacle to behold.
The event was hosted by Hawa Wakili with Comedian Omini featuring as a co-host.
Onor Alofoje, CEO Onorella Clothings and convener, Kreate Fashion show, while speaking to PM News said, “Kreate was birthed out of my love for fashion as I am a sucker for fashion.
I was looking at an avenue to bring fashion designers together, when it occurred to me that there are so many good and creative ‘unknown’ fashion designers like me who needed to be seen, so I thought, why don’t we come together like a fashion confluence and showcase what we have to the world? That way, we will get more customers and publicity.”
The event had in its line up an array of awesome designers some of which include: House of Anni, Aplus Outfit, Onorella Clothings, Rono Cassi, Omara Couture, Phummyfiness, Givic Fashion, Megs Signature, Ivy Maya, House of Everal, Beverly B Fashions, Hosh Couture, House of Behi, Emgy Stitches and many more.
The fashion designers whose bespoke pieces graced the runway include, Hosh Couture, Kpearl Fabrics & More, Aplus Outfit, Rono Cassi, GOA Your Signature, Isalium, Ivy Maya, House of Anni, Osebene Couture and Dee Ray Apparels
Some notable figures in the entertainment industry who were present at the event were Denrele Edun, Klint D Drunk, Broda Shaggi while Orezi thrilled the audience to a good time with his electric performance on stage.
DJ XGee was on the wheels of steel to thrill the audience to a great time of good music while the event lasted.
While expressing her happiness over the success of the fashion confluence to PM News, Onor said, “The turnout was encouraging, being the first of its kind, I didn’t think it would turn out this way because from the vendors to the patronage and attendance, everything was just nice as it was more than expected.”
Below are some of the pieces modelled on the runway at the event.
