An initiative of Leading Ladies and now in its second season, Fashion Fantasia! is essentially a benefit fashion show and fundraiser aimed at creating awareness for breast and cervical cancer.
The first edition of the show which took place last year on December 23rd at the Four Points Hotel Oniru, was able to raise funds to get 300 women screened for breast and cervical cancer free of charge. This year, the event is themed #EachOneCheckOne – emphasising the need for women (and men) to go for constant checks and get screened regularly.
Speaking on the event, Project Visionary Francesca Uriri said “Cancer is on the rise globally, there is no more efficient way to fight it, than to prevent its spread. This is essentially why we’re using fashion as a platform to ensure that women realize just how important it is to get their monthly checks done. Early detection of any type of cancer helps increase the rate of survival; and this is one of the key things we hope to re-iterate with this event.”
