The Black Carpet was hosted by Denrele and then joined by Dooshima Dabo'Adzuana (Kiss FM), in presenting the entire show.

According to The Runway Organising Team, the event was introduced as “an avenue to showcase Abuja’s hidden talent, as designers in Abuja more often than not, do not get the deserved publicity”. The Team are also looking forward to unveiling a 2nd Edition of The Runway, promising a bigger show with even more fashion and more music. Well, judging from the turn out of their debut effort, we absolutely cannot wait!
