There is something about the number 3 that is compelling at all times.
It is is the number of good fortune. It is the trinity. It is even the number of this blogs thematic focus.
Enough of my ramblings. Let us now delve into the three brands that dazed me out of my relaxation in the journey to unveil this website project.
The brands are hereby presented in no particular order of preference:
The last New Year eve was a remarkable one for Nigerians. Some affirmed their resolutions while others reaffirmed theirs.
Suddenly a brand New year 2012 unfolds and plans are deployed for an all-round exciting year ride.
Then came the New Year gift from the President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan led Government. Alas! PMS will now be retailed at 141NGN per liter. This was a staggering 117% increase in the former price of 65NGN.
There came the public outcry that halted economic activities for about 10 days. End result the retail price was changed to 97NGN a fair 49% increase compared to the former.
Faith Meets Fashion Show is a celebration of womanhood; it is to appreciate the status of women in Islam, how much they are revered and respected. It is an exclusive event for women and the beauty of their modesty and simplicity. It is an opportunity for women to mingle and network!
Leading international Islamic designers are scheduled to be in Abuja this week, for the second edition of the Islamic international fashion show tagged ‘Faith Meets Fashion Show’ organized by Muslim Identity (MID), an Islamic oriented business entity based in Abuja.
While addressing journalists in Abuja, the chief executive officer of MID, Abdulhameed Adetona stated that international Islamic designers like Silk Route, Aab and Modesty Active from the UK, Al-Farah, Artizara from America, Bokitta and Ostora from Egypt and Lebanon respectively, while three domestic brands Emerald MO, Eyesha and Twinkletowne will also unveiled be on the runway.
According to Mr. Adetona, ‘although the fashion meet is exclusively for women, Lawung a designer based in the UK that specialises in male executive Jalabiyyah will also participate.’
‘Faith Meets Fashion’ Show is organised by MID in collaboration with its International Clothing Partner, Islamic Design House, (UK). Adetona said the event “is aimed at extolling the beauty inherent in Islamic Fashion and bringing together Muslim female personalities from all walks of life”.
According to the CEO, the wife of the Vice President, Amina Sambo, will be the special guest of honour, while top Muslim female dignitaries such as wives of state governors, female muslim ministers and wives of muslim ministers, female Muslim National Assembly Members and wives of Muslim National Assembly members, and other top brass in the society are expected at the event.
Mr. Adetona said 11 brands would be on the runway, out of which only one will be for men and even that one would be showcased by young boys.
Throwing light on the programme's emphasis on women, Mr. Adetona said “the event is a celebration of womanhood; it is to appreciate the status of women in Islam, how much they are revered and respected. It is an exclusive event for women and the beauty of their modesty and simplicity. It is an opportunity for women to mingle and network,” he said.
Failure refers to the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. There exists a contrary view as opined by our very own Thomas Edison of the Light bulb fame whose consistent failure albeit with dignity has ensured that the world now has light. This can be captured in his platinum selling quote (*If there is anything like that though)… "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."
Thomas went further to awaken our instincts when he proffered a befuddling view of what results are. This can be garnered from the quote below:
"Results! Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results. I know several thousand things that won't work."
Now that we have established the above, journey with me as I present to you 50 fail proof ways that you can apply to fail with your dignity intact. Remember this post is not recommended unless you are 100% plus certain that you truly wish to fail with flying colors!
The term role model generally means any "person who serves as an example, whose behavior is emulated by others.
This is a post aimed to inform and educate all that have ever come under scrutiny in life as pertains to the subject of role modeling.
Do note that the permision of the subject was sought and granted before this was posted.
It was early 2000, I was 19 years old, in my second year at the University of Lagos. I'd been a model for about a year and a half then. Modeling back then didn't pay a lot. Sometimes you eat, sometimes you can't find food. Sometimes you had money, sometimes you will have to beg for it. I'm not from a rich home. I started struggling since I was 17 to support my family. So I kinda hard a tough life growing up but I kept working, doing all sorts of modeling jobs, ushering, fashion shows, and at one point I sold beer at a hotel. I'd leave lectures, go to a hotel and sell beer from 1pm till 10pm. I did this for a few months. It wasn't easy but I had to survive. One of the things I said to myself back then was, the day I sell my body to a man for money, may God strike me dead. I was determined to make it on my own, never let any man take my dignity. In those days, most young girls had an aristo...I was never one of those girls. I would rather starve or beg for food than give my body to a man for money.
