The Ife Runway Fashion Week started off as a student initiative whichhas 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. They were Dj Daruga, Ore Ajewole, Oyindolly, Queenish B, Olalekan Azeez, Dipo Ayoola & Olatunbosun Omotayo Oladapo.
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.

From edgy runway couture to casual go to wears, evening dresses,
formal wears, no class of outfit was left wanton. Members of the audience were on their toes to the end of the show.
