Best of fashion, style comes alive at GMYT African Humanitarian Award and Fashion show

Fashion and style evolves and can only take creative minds to not just follow the trend but create something that fits the age and time. Besides the fact that it’s ever-evolving, we’re sure people also appreciate a handful of different styles.

Despite being something that everyone does literally every day, getting dressed (or putting together an outfit, if you want to get fancy), can feel like the trickiest, most frustrating part of the morning.

Who hasn’t stood in front of a closet full of clothing and thought “I have nothing to wear!?” Rest assured, you’re not alone in this daily conundrum.

If it feels this way for those who wear clothes, how much more those who make dresses to fit into the everyday woman or man, dresses that are exceptional and one that is totally different from what you see every day.

At the 7th GMYT African Humanitarian Award and Fashion show, creativity was at its peak as creative fashion designers made distinguishing wears that appealed to guests at the show.

The designers showcased Avant-gard styles and vibrant colours on the runway, from light pink to lemon yellow, they played with a lot of colours.

Princess Kelechi Oghene MD and CEO of GMYT Fashion Academy hosted guests and awardees to a spectacular evening of fun glitz and super glamour.

The event which took place on Friday, December 11, at the Eventistry Lekki Phase One Lagos, recognised, awarded and celebrated organisations and individuals that have contributed positively to societal transformation and have also created a huge impact in people’s lives.

The show which was aimed at celebrating young fashion entrepreneurs that are part of the prestigious GMYT fashion academy has since contributed to societal change through fashion.

For Princess Oghene, it is a networking platform to celebrate young designers in grand style “It is important we reward our students who have shown resilience and tremendous improvement in one area or another. These awards will be conferred on them alongside other great organizations and personalities to encourage humanitarians like myself and celebrate us. It is about creating a legacy.”

With the theme as ‘The Untamed” this year’s award featured a spectacular fashion collection showcase from students of the academy, as Oghene noted “for the fashion show, we are letting the students fly with creativity.

Apart from the fashion show, guests were treated to some classy musical performances, comedy and other side attractions.
