Fashions Finest Africa would be holding the first and most prestigious fashion awards in Nigeria. The essence of the awards is to celebrate those who have made an impact and an indelible mark within the fashion industry.
Over time a lot of people have changed and contributed to the Nigerian and African fashion industry in many ways and the impact they make or have made have not always been well recognised or fully appreciated. Fashions Finest Africa intends to change this, which is why we have decided to debut the Fashions Finest Africa AWARDS.
The Fashions Finest AWARDS will surely be one of the most coveted awards within the fashion industry and the event will be an extremely glamorous red carpet affair and as such we suggest that you get your black tie and designer dress ready for the awards of the year.
Fashions Finest Africa AWARDS 2018 is set to take place at The Balmoral, Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos on the 25th May 2018.
The Categories below will be properly vetted by our carefully selected judges who have been selected based on their exploits in their chosen fields and they would choose the final winners.
