In the heart of Victoria Island at the Temple Muse conceptual store, the crème de la crème of fashion and lifestyle in Lagos enjoyed an evening of cocktails and great music from the decks of DJ Obi and DJ KoolJay.
The occasion was the GTBank Fashion Weekend Pre Event Cocktail, a glimpse of the fun planned for Fashion Weekend on the 11th and 12th of November.
Stepping into the exclusive party greeted by the beautiful Sharon Ooja and Timini Egbuson who were hosting the red carpet videos for GTBank’s Ndani TV was very pleasant but also intimidating.
Sharon was a complete #BellaStylista in a S.O.M.O multiple side pleat blush and damask fabric set. While Timini kept things cool in an ankara set from menswear brand Lookslikeagoodman.
Ik Osakioduwa kicked off the activities with a welcome bit of comic relief inside the boutique which had been totally transformed to a dimly lit party space, with more of the invited guests taking in the vibes of the night – drink in hand and munching on samosas.
The transitioning of the music from the 70s, 80s, to the 90s sure made the atmosphere jolly, close buddies like Teni Sagoe, Denola Grey, Papa Omisore and Latti Ronx Bamisedun among other glittering crew of friends shared laughs in between snapchat photos and cute boomerangs.
One of the highlights of the night was the well-curated mini fashion show TheStyleInfidel put together showcasing pieces from brands that will be showing at the GTBank Fashion Weekend and also stock at Temple Muse.

Fashion lovers in the Lagos have something to look forward to, as fast rising and dynamic duo of Benjamin Chinedu Okoye and Benedict Chigozie Okoye debut their new collection ‘B.O.B Elite Wear’.
Elite wear is a simple yet casual touch of brilliance; it is made up entirely of Cashmere, which is more stronger than wool and absorbs in less heat than cotton, hence can be worn for all occasions, both summer and cool seasons as well. Making it the perfect fashion item as it fits the constant change of the Lagos weather.
Its intricate weaving makes it appealing to the older generation who are not into outlandish designs, and the vibrant coloursin which they are made in seem to be a pull for the young and young at heart all together.
In all, the B.O.B Elite collections definitely seem to be incapable of doing any wrong, from walking the red carpets, attending an evening gala, a Sunday service or simply deciding to go with a casual outfit while looking elegant.
The B.O.B elite wear seem to tick all those marks.
With patronage from high ranking A list celebrities like E-money. Kcee , Alex Ekubo, Innocent Idibia (2 baba) among several others.
The B.O.B crew seem to be riding on from the success of their Stone Crested and Petal collections and just recently, from their debut of the B.O.B Suede Jacket.
All this seems to have been geared towards the making of one elegant and yet simple outfit desired to meet the need of every lover of elegance and will no doubt find its way into the wardrobes of every fashion enthusiast and lover of looking good.

Emmy Collins London Unveils Latest Designs, Hosts Trendless Style Weekend in Lagos
Emmy Collins London, the multi-faceted top end fashion brand based in London, is set to unveil its latest designs in Lagos and has finalized arrangements to host an upscale fashion event tagged ‘Trendless Style Weekend’ at the African Arts Foundation (AAF) Gallery in Victoria Island Lagos.
The brand that caters for menswear/womenswear in the global fashion market has built a reputation for designing exquisite runway pieces and ready-to-wear outfits for both sexes .The ‘Trendless Style Weekend’ according to its Creative Director, Emeka Collins, is a prelude to the return of Emmy Collins to Nigeria.
“We are headquartered at the creative hub of London – Shoreditch, East End – catering for our global clients but we are set to establish physical presence here in Nigeria with offices opening soon in Ikoyi, Lagos” he said.
Endowed with the elegance of quality British tailoring and design, Emmy Collins is a force to be reckoned with in the contemporary world of fashion, but wants to extend the gains of the brand back home to the very discerning and fashion loving Nigerians who like quality and innovative pieces. Since debuting 16 years ago, Emmy Collins has made clothes for local and international clients including some private and public sector leaders, businessmen, industry bigwigs, upwardly mobile executives, fashion icon as well as stars in the music, movies and Nigerian entertainment industry.
“Nigerians are some of the biggest shoppers in the world as statistics from Selfridges, Harrods and some of the global departmental stores have shown. I am convinced that Nigerians will be willing to shop locally if they find the right quality of apparels. We are poised to bridge that gap and reverse that trend, with tastefully designed pieces that are designed and tailored to global standards” he said.
Guests at ‘Trendless Style Weekend’, will be opportuned to view some of the designs on display and worn by models, whilst the Creative Director will be on ground to take orders for the made-to-measure pieces.

Kayode Alfred Redefines Bespoke Couture, Prepares For The Official Launch Of Aristocrat Clothing Store On Dec. 3
This is cheering news for enterprising and innovative Kayode Alfred, the celebrity journalist-turned designer, as he is fast carving a niche for himself among fashion buffs.
Come this December 3rd, he will officially launch the epoch-making Aristocrat Clothing Store and the unveiling of new collections.
The event holds at Vikay House, located at 38 Odusami Street, Ogba-Lagos, and promises to be the fashion event of the out-going year.
It will feature the biggest fashion runway of all time, alongside music, comedy and other entertainment condiments that will wow all attendees, which will include and not limited to Nollywood veteran actors, Richard Mofe Damijo, Saidi Balogun, Faithia Balogun, many top socialites, corporate big boys and girls who are believed to be fashion buffs.
Aristocrat will also be spicing the event with the introduction of Aristocrat Woman, which will readily complement that of the male stock.
Kayode is fully poised to tame the pedestrian and largely formulaic fashion culture that Nigeria has become accustomed to. And he is doing so with unprecedented verve, enlightenment and innovativeness.
The Aristocrat brand is partnering with the top of the range fashion outfit, Twice as Nice, one of the leading fashion companies in Nigeria to sell Aristocrat casuals and face caps.
The fashion industry, let’s tell you at no price, is replete with many innovations, and that vacuum is what Aristocrat has come to fill with all verve and tenacity.
Ever since the outfit launched out not too far back, it has continually remained in the consciousness of those who like to look good.
This could be the culmination of a passion that enterprising and innovative Kayode Alfred has long had since he was in school, and this passion is now rearing its head, going by the number of corporate guys who now besiege his upscale outfit in his modest Omole Phase 1 stable, where he churns out beautiful and cute outfits for his largely elite clientele.
The consistent patronage he enjoys from them is enough to comfort to him. He does not even have to start mouthing off or revealing their identities, as some of them are quite reserved about such issues.
Hence unlike most fashion designers who derive their kicks and leverage from revealing the identities of their celebrity clientele, the celebrity journalist and Aristocrat boss serves his clientele, according to their preferences.
ARISTOCRAT is versatile in the making of shirts, casuals for men and women, Kaftan, snapback caps, and the traditional Yoruba Agbada outfit.
