From Denola Grey to Sharon Ooja, Akin Faminu and Toke Makinwa amongst, other celebrities all showed off their fashionable sides, as they participated in what is now one of Africa’s largest fashion showcases.

Following last year’s edition where BamBam and a couple other popular names walked the runway for some of the designers, this year saw even more celebrities on the runway. Toke Makinwa, Bolanle Olukanni, Mike Edwards and Venita Akpofure were some of the biggest names on the runway, displaying some of the best outfits at the event.

Other celebrities not on the runway had the opportunity to explore the exhibition area, where some other budding fashion designers were making presentations of their own unique outfits and designs. There were also fashion focused talks and a Fashion Business Series dinner which had a good number of guests in attendance.
