Arise Magazine Fashion Week - Day 1

It was disappointing start to the Arise Magazine Fashion Week, with slight delays and shows been rescheduled. There was also the last minute dispatch of invite information on ticket costs and payments. However, the excitement was still in the air, as the designers worked hard at getting their last fittings done, models doing final practices on their walks and press accreditation.

The Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos was filled with activity in final preparation for the three day event, starting tomorrow, 11th March 2010.
