Leading African financial institution, GT Bank, has scored another first with a revolutionary fashion event.
Tagged the GT Bank Fashion Weekend, the event, a first of its kind, will hold in Lagos between 12th and 13th of November.
Themed ‘Promoting Enterprise,’ the two-day consumer focused event will create a never before witnessed fashion experience, showcasing latest fashion trends and products to a large and diverse audience of consumers, fashion aficionados and industry professionals.
A sequel to the GTBank Food and Drink Weekend, the GTBank Fashion Weekend is part of the bank’s initiative to strengthen small businesses in key economic sectors through non-profit consumer-focused fairs and capacity building initiatives that serve to boost their expertise, exposure and business growth.
Expected at the event are top fashion industry experts, trend setters as well as locally renowned designers and style authorities.
Speaking on the landmark event, Mr. Segun Agbaje, the Managing Director of Guaranty Trust Bank plc, said: “We are thrilled to be the first in the Nigerian financial sector to pioneer an initiative that will assist in unlocking growth opportunities for businesses in the fashion industry. We believe we have a fundamental responsibility to ensure that our customers have all the necessary tools to achieve success within the global economy. We will use our strength, global reach, expertise and relationships to make a positive impact for our customers and invariably our communities.
We are committed to growing SMEs in a sustainable manner that is not driven by profits but focused on empowering our customers and growing our economy collectively.”
