Fashion, Art And Culture Lights Up Abuja
It was an awe-inspiring scene, recently, at the Omega Events Arena, in Abuja, as the maiden edition of Tribelike melded lovers of art, fashion and culture across the capital for an immersive festival that showcased the best of offerings across those scenes.
The festival marked the launch of their virtual marketplace, which offers departmental retailing from fashion brands, art shops and culture-focused creators.
“Tribelike is the bridge that connects the most important aspects of fashion, art and culture together. We are a community of different tribes and we pride ourselves in authenticity. Every individual has their own vision, but we can all truly be tribe-like,” Kene Ugwu.
Apart from the feast of savoury dishes, there was also an avant-garde line-up of games, music performances, as well as celebrity guest appearances.
A panel session was also conducted with the topic “Fashion, Music, Tech and its Intersection with industry” featuring speakers like Aisha Sambo, Prince Fiammari Zoaka, Nosakhare Akioya, Nwokeji Oscar and Desmond Ike, with Vivian of Nbhoaf as the panel moderator.
Also, Ikenna Nnaji the Founder, spoke about it’s important to help brands and creatives expand their reach and help them gain recognition in their industries.
The entire experience brought a breath of fresh air to Abuja’s thriving creative community, which has seen an increase in global exports across its music and entertainment sector, including amazing acts like Odumodublvck, Mannie Tseayo, Psycho YP, among many others.
