I’m jetting off in a private jet to New York as the New York fashion week starts, checking into the Empire hotel, sipping champagne in the tub and looking out of my window after a long day at the show. Meeting and rubbing shoulders with Uber-fabulous designers and making small talk with Anna Wintour (with a straight face of course) and Bryan Boy seated at the front row…
Snap your fingers in my face and its back to reality 🙁
Oh well, I am just a Fashion enthusiast but who knows…I just might get there *sigh* but still lots of reasons to be excited. Arise all fashion lovers… Arise Magazine has a surprise for us all!!!
ARISE MAGAZINE, Africa’s first global style and culture magazine will be hosting the “ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION WEEK” from 10th – 13th of March 2011 in Lagos. 50 designers will be chosen by a panel of judges to showcase their 2011 collection.
The very best of these designers would be invited to participate in the inaugural and annual ARISE MAGAZINE FASHION GALA in New York on Wednesday, 14 September 2011 during New York Fashion Week.
