Tribune Online GTBank plans for Africa’s biggest fashion experience this November
INDUSTRY leaders, style connoisseurs and fashion enthusiasts from across the globe will converge on Lagos for the 4th edition of the GTBank Fashion Weekend scheduled for 9th and 10th of November.
The Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of the bank, Segun Agbaje, said, “Since 2016, the event has brought together renowned fashion experts and personalities to interact with hundreds of thousands of young Africans, passionate about fashion and entrepreneurship.”
This year, the event, which is free to attend, will feature over 30 distinguished fashion leaders, designers and industry experts, whilst providing more than 130 indigenous small businesses with free stalls to showcase and sell Africa’s finest ensemble of apparel and fashion accessories.
Attendees will be treated to an exciting repertoire of fashion moments, from fashion and entrepreneurial master classes facilitated by internationally renowned fashion experts to enthralling runway shows that will present the latest in fashion styles and design trends.
There will also be pop-up stands where talented indigenous designers will display their works and interact with some of Africa’s most passionate fashionistas,
“As we work towards the 4th edition of the biggest fashion showcase in Africa, our goal is to not only showcase the wealth of talent, innovation and enterprise that abound in Africa’s fashion space,” Agbaje said, “but to also grow the continent’s contribution to the global fashion industry by empowering budding entrepreneurs at home with everything they need to thrive on the world stage.”
He further stated that, “In fashion, as well as in food and the creative industry, we see not just the amazing talents and passion of our people, but how, by championing their entrepreneurial spirit, we can enrich millions of lives, uplift communities and grow our economy.”
The Bank is also going beyond the traditional understanding of Corporate Social Responsibility as corporate philanthropy by intervening in key economic sectors through non-profit consumer-focused fairs and capacity-building initiatives for small businesses.
