Now here’s something that might interest you. It’s an event called Fashion Lounge organized by Kemi Akande (InspireBusinessWorld.com) and Rachael Taiwo-Akingbade (Lavish Lingerie); who have had several years’ experience in the fashion and events sector and are creating this opportunity for those in the fashion industry to network and gain exposure. Brilliant idea if you ask me. MTV Base will be filming the event. The event is going to be flowing with fashionistas, celebrities, models, modelling agencies, celebrity stylists, media tycoons, make-up artists, photographers and beauty and fashion magazines and other relevant people. The launch will be spectacular and this will be the most exclusive night Lagos has ever seen! Entry is strictly by invitation. You can submit your name and email address (stated below) for the guest list; however management still has the right to refuse entry.
Kemi and Rachael describe the vision of the event as;
*An exclusive networking event for people within the fashion industry
*An opportunity to meet and socialize with the right mix of people to further your interests and aspirations within the world of fashion
*And to establish a serious networking event which will enable connections, affiliations and relevant interaction in the world of fashion. Attendees will be via invite or guest list only attracting likeminded people who are either firm in the fashion business or looking to enter. We believe in contributing and strengthening the fashion scene in Lagos".
Lagos's hottest DJ's will be setting the ambience and early entry is well advised as the event will be kicking off from 7pm, with free lavish cocktails being served before 8pm. "Your Network is your Net worth"!
Here’s what you need to know:

Fashion designers are encouraged to come along with models displaying their designs but there is already a waiting list for designers wanting to participate in the event and only 2 designers can showcase every month...so it’s best to try and get on the waiting list so as to be in the line-up.
