With the theme, "Iconic Hall of Fame" the event is bringing together stakeholders in the fashion industry from Nigeria, USA, Ghana and Angola. 

Organised by Designers Award Fashion Show, the Saturday's event will feature comedy, exhibition and runway showcase, cocktail and ballet and live performances.

As campaign for youth entrepreneurship continues to gain momentum as a result of the saturated labour market, the fashion industry has been identified as one that can lend support in taking millions of young people out of unemployment.

Though no visible investment has been made to boost the industry by the federal government, the industry thrives on the sole efforts of individuals and organisations in the every dynamic sector.
