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.
I’m Aware Of Challenges Facing Police, My Administration Has Helped A Lot — Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration has helped to alleviate the problems facing the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).
The president spoke on Thursday when he received the 2021 audited report and 2023 budget proposal of the police service commission (PSC), in Abuja.
He underscored the importance of quality welfare in effective service delivery and said the federal government has made it a priority for police officers.
“I particularly note that accommodation for police officers is very critical and this administration has made the welfare of police officers, and indeed, the armed forces a top priority,”
“I know that when officers are posted on duty or assignments and they know that their families live in barracks with facilities, schools, clinics, and a conducive living environment, their morale is boosted and they would discharge their duties with courage and efficiency.
“I am pretty aware of the problems and challenges confronting the Nigeria police force and the armed forces.
“The problem is relative to time and resources and this administration has done a lot with the limitations.”
Presenting the 2021 audited report and the 2023 budget proposal to the president, Clara Ogunbiyi, acting chairman of the commission, said the PSC has ensured that ”proper and fit persons are recruited into the Nigeria Police Force”.
She added that the commission has been consistent in ensuring making sure officers are promoted at the right time while erring police officers are sanctioned as appropriate.
While expressing appreciation to the president for the prompt release of funds towards the completion of the PSC headquarters, Ogunbiyi requested that the commission’s budget be placed in the first line charge in budget allocation, as that would allow the commission to be more effective.
‘KO READY-TO-WEAR’ Announces Mega Black Friday Deals
KO Ready-To-Wear, a Lagos top fashion retail store, has announced a three-day sales extravaganza ahead of the 2021 Black Friday discount season.
A statement from the fashion outfit noted that the store will be offering its numerous customers the best fashion deals of the season ahead of the yuletide from Friday 26 November to 29 November.
Kiki Okewale, style icon and CEO of the eponymous fashion brand, noted that this year’s Black Friday falls on November 26 but KO Ready-To-Wear will be hosting a three-day shopping extravaganza tagged E Choke!!!
“Handily, Black Friday falls just before the countdown to Christmas, so it’s a great opportunity to get a head-start on your wish list,” Okewale stated.
“For our ‘E Choke’ Black Friday Sales, everywhere will be jolly because shoppers will have so much to save up to 50% discount. This means that they have the chance to buy at half price. And if this one ‘no choke’, I don’t know what else will choke for black Friday.
“From quality fabrics, seasonal wardrobe essentials, hard-to-find designer handbags and jewelry, whatever you are hunting for, our fashion store ticks plenty of boxes and there’s no better time to snap up a bargain.
“It’s never too early to start crafting your Black Friday wish list —even if the discount season is just some days away. You can shop up to 50 percent off thousands of items, and the discounts will only get better closer to the big day,” Okewale said.
It will be recalled that all through the month of October, the fashion retail outfit hosted an ‘Ember To Remember Sales’ where it offered numerous customers huge discounts plus free gifts on all items purchased in the store.
Okewale’s distinctive stock and creations have seen her shoot to the top of the fashion and clothing business in Nigeria within a short period of time as she boasts of several of Nigeria’s women of class and elegance as clients.
