Nigeria: Bouygues Nigeria Combines Fashion With Construction

On Saturday, February 2nd, 2013, BOUYGUES CONSTRUCTION NIGERIA hosted a fashion catwalk show and launched their calendar in the Federal Capital City of Abuja.

It was a relaxed evening with divine food, good company and soft music.

Guests were entertained by the catwalk show of three vibrant and emerging fashion designers and also, a music performance by a group of three young, ambitious and promising artistes.

The fashion show kicked off with a display of Sally Intiego Collection on the runway and the collections showed pure talent. There was a blend of lace couture fabric with a touch of African element. This, I call Afro-centric. Nene Kester's collection brought dazzle and fireworks to the evening as the models took the runway in bikinis and some dance as the music and the outfits told of the freedom of the African woman within. Finally, Kato Couture collection was the last to be seen by the guests. She was chic and sophisticated, displaying dinner gowns, long flowing dresses, well crafted and adorned with jewels and pearls, such bright and vibrant collection.

A brief speech was given by the manager of BOUYGUES CONSTRUCTION NIGERIA, telling the story of how far they have come and plans to break new grounds in future in Nigeria.

The catwalk show was concluded with the models fully dressed as construction workers. This brought humour and applause from the audience.

The catwalk show was organised and coordinated by Mrs. Joan Okorodudu of the ISIS Modelling Agency. Mrs. Okorodudu also spoke on the fashion journey with BOUYGUES CONSTRUCTION, as they were the sponsors of the NIGERIA'S NEXT TOP MODEL.

As the show came to an end, the guests still enjoyed good music and conversation.

It was indeed an ideal and relaxing sturdy evening out.
