FADAN celebrates patron Sen. Ita-Giwa at 70

The fashion world is not playing this 2016. All hands are presently on deck sewing, designing and planning out a storm to make the year one that is filled with loads of fun-filled fashion events.

The Fashion Designers Association of Nigeria ( FADAN) in the spirit of appreciation, celebrated their patron Senator Florence Ita-Giwa as she turned 70 on February 13, 2016, at the Oriental Hotel, Lagos. The event would be incomplete without a display of fashionable pieces by talented fashion designers and members of the association.

Dozzy Couture and Kola Kuddus showcased their designs for the men while designers like Maufechi, Graces Hats, Ade Bakare, Araewa and a host of others equally had models strut their designs on the stage.

The event played host to dignitaries such as Dame Abimbola Fashola, Actress Taiwo Ajayi Lycett, Ovation’s Chief Dele Momodu, Chief Mrs. Opral Benson, Abba Folawiyo and Mrs. Sally Mbanefo, Director General of the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation to name a few.

All present wished Senator Ita-Giwa well including the presentation of gifts by well-wishers. Students of Yaba college of Technology were also on ground to paint live portraits of the event while one of them presented a painting of the Senator as a gift with a promise to draw another for her when she turns 80.
