Over 1000 Students Attended The Ife Runway Fashion Week At the Obafemi Awolowo University

The Ife Runway Fashion Week started off as a student initiative which
has now grown into one of the most professionally organized student
fashion shows in Nigeria. This year, in order to add a new dimension
to the production, the organisers added a lot of spice to make the
show more beautiful. Notably are the Ife runway brand ambassadors who
are students at the Obafemi Awolowo University. Their job like other
brand ambassadors is to provide goodwill for the fashion week and take
it to the grass root student community.

The Ife Runway Fashion Week season 3 (IRFW 3) held between the 27th-
29th January 2015 at the Obafemi Awolowo University. The Fashion week
recorded over 1000 buyers, guests and fashionistas. IRFW is organized
by Blacknbold fashion house; the organizers of the Nigerian student
fashion and design week. The Week commenced with an exhibition that
lasted for two days. The aim of the exhibition was to provide an arena
for student sellers while producing a conducive environment for buying
and selling. The show proper held on Thursday the 29th of January at
the Awo Varsity, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile- Ife.

The event started at 9pm with Uncle Toonz and Jennifer on the red
carpet. The fashion show itself was hosted by popular OAP Deji Crown
FM and the beautiful Ore Ajewole. The fashion show announced the
presence of 9 new designers to the Nigerian fashion scene, the
designers include: Theresa Reebs, Stephmarc Fashion Creations,
SheyeOladejo, Maindrag Demeanor, Morete, Love'N'Saints Fashion House,
JKC, Fabulous Creation, and winners from The Collection contest. These
designers with their exquisite designs wowed the crowd. It was so much
creativity and professionalism from a crowd whose bulk are students.
Each designer had a minimum of 10 outfits and a maximum of 15 per set.
From edgy runway couture to casual go to wears, evening dresses,
formal wears, no class of outfit was left wanton. Audiences were on
their toes to the end of the show.

Nigerian top super songstress, the beautiful Seyi Shay was a guest at
the show. The irawo crooner no doubt added more life and class to the
event. Also present was Mr Sola Oyebade; CEO Mahogany international
and the producer of Africa Fashion Week London and a host of other top
notch fashion shows. Popular Nollywood actor Yinka Salau was also
present. The campus was also overwhelmed with apprehension as the Ife
runway fashion show had earlier taken a one year hiatus. The wait was
worth it after all as the fashion show was sold out.
