Last year’s inaugural edition of music meets runway surpassed all expectations but this year’s edition promises to be bigger and better as the organizers Le Reve Events intend to blow you away with new additions and concept that will make the show trendier, fierce and over the top.
The Music Meets Runway billed for sometime in December 2012 at the Eko Hotel is designed to promote talents in the Music and Fashion industries by fusing performances by some of the most outstanding artists in the Nigerian Music industry and with a runway showcase featuring some of the most creative designs by up-and-coming designers Nigeria has to offer.
The inaugural edition of MUSIC MEETS RUNWAY IN 2011 held at the prestigious Expo Centre, Eko Hotel & Suites in Victoria Island, Lagos. The pioneering event is not to support the fashion and music industry alone but to also create avenues for philanthropic growth through the Music Meets Runway Foundation, as a percentage of proceeds raised from tables sold at the event will be donated to a chosen charity organizations to encourage young students to follow their dreams as most of their schools are plagued with infrastructural deficit common to the Nigerian educational system. It will be recalled that it was at the stage of the maiden edition of Music Meets Runway that Davido had his first public performance.
Aligning the show among top events to watch out for in 2012, the Music Meets Runway (MMR) 2012 model casting held on Saturday 13th October at the New N-Tyce Lounge in Victoria Island was a huge success with attendance of over 2000 young aspiring male and female models determined to begin or take a career on the runway to the next level. The attendance showed the wide acceptance of the show among youths and upward mobile people.
Speaking in a press chat, producer of the show Jennifer Olize affirms “I have very high expectations for the show this year. If you enjoyed the show last year, you are guaranteed a better experience this year. With this year’s new additions and concept we plan to make the show more trendy, fierce and over the top. From the designers, music artists, models and people in attendance, MMR 2012 will surely create a greater impact this year”.
