The shows for the Arise Africa Fashion Week finally kicks off today in Lagos. Though the event started behind schedule, it became a beehive of activities as top fashion and celebrity photographers, models, producers,bloggers, reporters,service providers and various presenters stormed the red carpet to interview and take photographs of guests.

In the morning saw  the likes of Folake Akindele of Tiffany Amber, Tayo Shonekan, singer Tiwa Savage, leading female rapper, Sasha, Nikki Khiran,Gert Jonah from South Africa,Madam Joko Oni, Adesuwa Belo-Osagie, Ibidun Ajayi, Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Mubarak Adegunwa, Dimeji Alara, Bee Authur a designer from Ghana and several others.

The event  started today with Ugonna Omeruo the founder of House of Nwocha opening the show. Kiki Kamanu a thunderous  applause from the audiance  as she showcased her wonderful collections too. She also made a good show of her sexy figure as she catwalk on the runway but she almost fell off the stage when she was leaving.

Sasha came hours before the show started and got the paparazzi's attention. Tiwa Savage too! Tiwa who was wearing a dress by Toju Fayeh seems to be used to the photograhers. She was electrifying everyone with her moves on the red carpet. sighted members of THISDAY style co-ordinating themselves so that nothing will go wrong with their coverage since they are host of the event. On the red carpet especially, the female reporters were right on the neck of the photographers, giving them instructions and pointing to people to be photographed. also sighted Folake Akindele of Tiffany Amber Couture.  Folake, one of the daughters of Ibadan Billionaire , Chief Bode Akindele blocked her face with her hand when a photographer from Guardian Newspapers was trying to take her photo.

Gert the South African Fashion dsesigner was very specular on the red carpet. He was looking 'beautiful' with his fine lady's bag. Most guys who were not used to seeing such things were shocked that a man actually left home or his hotel room carrying a lady's bag. Things dey happen ooo!
