This Sunday, at a strictly by invitation event at the Civic Centre Lagos, fashion designer Folake Majin will unveil two things: ‘The Royal collection’ alongside ‘The Breathless Experience’ Collection by Miss Majin and ‘The Circle Revolution Collection’ by GM4FM’s Gogo Majin, both her daughters.
In 1988, Folake Majin’s ‘Schon Arik’ label stepped on to the then very young fashion industry in Nigeria with pieces that instantly caught on with women because they were created to be visually stunning and distinctive. More than two decades later she remains a pioneer fashion designer and a leader in the fashion industry. She has also inspired and mentored several young designers who have come into their own success.
“Expect original visually stunning clothes and breathe taking pieces. A show to remember.”
The fashion show will have three segments, with three different collections from the Folake Majin brand, the Miss Majin brand and the GM4FM (Gogo Majin For Folake Majin) brand.
“The Breathless Experience Collection is a perfect combination, a combination of moving art and sound,” Miss Majin says.
“My inspiration for the collection came from an accessory that has been made and used by my mom for her clients for more than a decade on many of her haute couture designs. I took that accessory and built the whole collection around it,” Gogo, also a singer, says. GM4FM is showing for the first time after being launched on 13 August, 2011.
She continues: “For Sunday please expect a different spin to a fashion show. Expect original visually stunning clothes and breathe taking pieces. A show to remember.”
The event is powered by MTN and also sponsored by Bank of Industry, Beat FM, Classic FM and Channels TV.
