Sisi Abbah conducted the cutting of the ribbon. She was also the mother of the day.
The event was fun-fulled as there were many interesting activities and varieties of food and drinks for guests and all her clients. Let us talk about the kiddies fashion show. One of the most captivating moments at the event was the children fashion show. The children were beautifuly dressed in some of her lovely collection. They were all looking radiant and beautiful in their outfits as they rocked the runway. We also cannot easily forget how the models strut down the runway in beautiful, short dresses kaftans-boubous, playsuits, some of this lovely dresses were rocked with her luxury turbans.
Did we mention that Qubraz’s outfit for the occasion was breathtaking? Both the first and second outfits were eye-catching. Many couldn’t take their eyes off her as they admired her beautiful dresses. Her first outfit was a beautiful Emerald green sequence dress while her second look was a red sequence dress which made heads turn.

She said they would be selling lovely collection and will be training people how to sew. She also talked about what they do such as Ready to wear and made to measure but they specialise on women outfits. She also mentioned that she went into the fashion business because her late mom Alhaja Sabitiu Agbekeola Folami was a fashionista and she used to be a fabric merchant.
