Much has been said about the success of the 2013 edition of the Music Meets Runway tagged ‘Iconic’ edition held last year on the 21st December, in Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, but Jennifer Olize, CEO Le Reve Events, organizer of Music Meets Runway will not let the past pass without showing her gratitude to sponsors, partners, audience and those who made the show an outstanding success.
Jennifer Olize was full of thanks, “I am indeed grateful to everyone who made Music Meets Runway 2013 a success. We had an amazing group of partners that were very supportive, and I can’t thank you enough. A fashion show is never complete without a huge runway statement, the event planner and decorators brought my vision to life, I was totally impressed and awed by the absolute professionalism. We had a fantastic group of designers who worked so hard to showcase their array of styles and trends for the future of fashion. The models were not afraid to step out in faith and pour their hearts out on the runway. I am so proud of everyone involved and also to the audience members who made that extra effort to come early and support us. I am the luckiest person to be able to relate to so many people from all walks of life.”
Last year, the third edition of Music Meets Runway held with media personality IK Osakioduwa and American reality TV star and fashion designer Angela Simmons as hosts; it was worth its weight of gold.
The models showed off their most exquisite pieces, as music icons performed on stage. Icons like Femi Kuti, who performed for the collections of Deola Sagoe, Tuface Idibia and music legend Victor Olaiya, sang their remix of an original song by Sir Victor while models from the Ituen Basi collection stole the audience hearts. Praiz with a voice so smooth sang for the Mai Atafo collection that started with James Bond theme and ended in military wedding that took most breaths away.
There were other performances by D’banj, Wizkid, Lola Rae, Seyi Shay, Tiwa Savage and Toni Tones.
