It’s that time of the year, when gifts are given out to celebrate a successful year or just to share love to those who aren’t privileged. This year is no different as ALABI Couture invites you to its 3rd Annual Charity Fashion Show.
April 28th Production and ALABI Couture as a team, has been successful in organizing several events, especially in the area of Fashion and Charity shows.
ALABI Couture organises a Charity fashion show annually in December where an Orphanage Home in Lagos is selected just put smiles on the faces of the Children, staff of the home and generally on everyone present on the day. The brand sees this as a way of giving back to the less privileged and to the society.
Clothes are made for all the children of the home and all the staff (a way of saying thank you to them for taking care of these Children). The fashion house also makes clothes for a handful of well-known faces/celebrities who then put up a fashion show for the children, making the Day a Fun day for the Children.
The Children are given new clothes, some of which they wear on the day of the fashion show. They also get toys, reading materials, food items, toiletries and other items are donated to the Home.
This year, ALABI Couture will be working with the Living Fountain Orphanage Home at plot 22, Chief Yesufu Abiodun way, near Atlantic Beach Estate Oniru, Lekki on the 8th Dec, 2013.
