Ibadan is usually one of the underestimated fashion oriented cities but that was in years ago. Now, Ibadan has stepped up the fashion game, proudly owning countless number of fashion creatives, who are also passionate about the celebration and education of fashion via various fashion shows. This is part of the reasons that, Adeshola Ademiloye popularly known as Arcade (Project Coordinator, Ibadan Bridal Fashion Week), has planned and executed, with the support of DSIgate and various other organizations, a fashion show in the great city of Ibadan. Actually, the very first of its kind.
There is the need to create a platform for local bridal designers to thrive, knowing that there are lots of local bridal and non-bridal designers who are doing amazing jobs but are probably not recognized the way they ought to. So one of the way forward to this trending issue is definitely a fashion show where you can get to feature your brand like a celeb. You of course, upgrade from being an ordinary tailor to a fashion designer, thereby upgrading your fashion portfolio.
