The renowned designer‘s Dream Wedding II was held on June 13 at Landmark Village Event Centre, Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos. Mai Atafo unveiled his latest wedding collection (which had already been showcased on a spectacular fashion runway in Paris) – The Grandeur Collection in grand style to a huge crowd of celebrities and socialites.
Like Dream Wedding I, Dream Wedding II stayed true to it’s make-belief happy ending wedding fairy-tale infusing wedding elements of the wedding ceremony, wedding reception, wedding decor, wedding invites, bridal train, bouquet catch and the magical I Do Kiss amongst other wedding effects as the crowd were whisked away on a magical journey through the make-believe wedding event.
In no easy feat, Isio Wanogho and Chris Attoh shared that magical I Do Kiss to the delight of the crowd, just like how Uti Nwachukwu & Muna Abii had done in the previous edition.
This year’s showcase included an official theme song – Stay With Me sang and recorded by Nigerian Vocal Superstars Waje & Praiz. You can listen to and download Waje & Praiz – Stay With Me.
The runway saw catwalks from female stunners – Isio Wanogho, Yvonne Nelson, Eku Edewor, Beverly Naya and Tobi Oyelakin and male hunks - Chris Attoh, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Gbenro Ajibade, Lynxxx, Joseph Benjamin,Banky W, Tosin Martins, DJ Xclusive and OC Ukeje.
