Egirani said that the event would feature upcoming designers who had made significant and demonstrable contributions in the field of fashion and design.
She said that it would give them the opportunity to present their creativities and designs for an audience to experience the perfect expression of fashion delivered with a touch of elegance.
“Acquiring skills in fashion designing is a veritable tool toward becoming self employed, generate income and be employer of labour,” Egirani added.
