Thursday July 20, 2017 – Dunes Center in Abuja, Nigeria
Day 1 of the Hayati Fashion Week took place at the Dunes Center, in Wuse II Abuja. It was a fundraiser for our title sponsor, the Medicaid Cancer Foundation who is a pioneer in the fight against cancer in Nigeria. This event was a chance for us to raise awareness about cancer and the many Nigerias who are affected on a daily basis. I was also an opportunity to educate the crowd and extend ways in which they can each help Medicaid’s continued fight against cancer.
The night was filled with entertainment from DJ Gabby and Zainab Sule, as well as an art exhibition by Maryam Maigida. To end the night, we held a fashion exhibition with designs from Aisha Falke, 21 Stitches, Le voile, Irama Mode, Covered & Chic, and Regalia.
