Agbani Darego To Host the International 2013 Port Harcourt Fashion Week

Posted on Updated on

It comes as no surprise as Agbani Darego, a former
world beauty queen and international super model
has been headlined as the host of the 2013 Port
Harcourt International Fashion Week tagged, “Native
& Vogue”.
Agbani won the Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria
pageant and Miss World pageant respectively in
2001. She said her nomination as the hostess of the
maiden edition of the Port Harcourt International
Fashion Week was a privilege and an honour.
“It was on the platform of Rivers State that I came
to win the MBGN title and thereafter the Miss World
pageant in 2001. So, an initiative of the state
government that seeks to promote, encourage
young and aspiring designers and models into the
professional world is one that I would gladly support
and, in fact, I see it as an honour to have been
considered for the role,” she said.
The three-day event is a Private-Public Partnership
initiative of the state government and it is aimed at
bringing together professional fashion designers
from Nigeria and around the world. It would also be
a wonderful opportunity for upcoming designers to
undergo tutelage under the mentorship of
professionals.
Young designers would showcase their works in a
competition that would have the winner go home
with a cash prize of N500, 000 and an all-expenses
paid six months scholarship to the reputable
Capecon Fashion School, South Africa.
