Btw if you’re wondering how I settled for this gown to wear to this event, let me just say I was undecided, so much so I ended up bringing 2 gowns with me to Dallas. One by Elie Saab and this one. Up until 30 minutes before leaving my hotel room, I was still undecided. And then you know me, I resorted to eeny meeny miny moe and voila! I guess I couldn't resist this beautiful print. Florals were served heavily at the Emmys back in September. Remember Kristen Bell's Zuhair Murad gown and Sarah Hyland's Monique Lhuillier floral bodice HERE? I totally loved!
If we're connected on Instagram (@Fashionably-idu) and or FB, you should have already seen a video that I reposted of this gown on the night of the Afrimma awards.
I say kudos to the organizers of this show, Ifeoma Nzimiro Obiagwu and her amazing hubby Anderson Obiagwu of Big A Entertainment. They truly 'walk the talk' and I applaud their efforts in putting together a show of this magnitude. Every ’t' was crossed and every ‘i' dotted. A pessimist could have gone through with a fine tooth comb and not found a thing to snicker about cos they spared no effort. There was just one tiny little con and that was out of their control anyhow. Time. The event was running behind schedule so the venue was closed down before all the winners could be presented with their awards and performers had a chance to do their thing. Perfection regardless! It was only the 3rd installment and this event will only get bigger and better.
I'm already looking forward to next year.
I saw trends being fully embraced. Emerging trends and even those hard to pull off were not left by the wayside. I even saw some trends that who knows, may drive the future. Whichever way they leaned, fashion gals from all over truly showed their flair for fashion, very effortlessly might I add. Every one brought their A game and I loved it all. Some looks were so breathtaking you could actually hear a gasp escape one’s mouth. Different lengths and silhouettes and hues. All so fab.
I apologize for posting this late. I was waiting for all my pictures from the various photogs that covered the event. Sadly I still don't have them all so I've added some taken at home and a few that I actually received.
And here is a rundown of the big winners of the night:
