The UK FAB Magazine Launch party was deemed a success by attendees and organisers alike subsequent to its proceedings at RS Lounge in East London on Sunday 7th August.
Co-hosted by StylishDay, the event saw an influx of music enthusiasts, fashion lovers and party goers arrive at the location, prepared for a night of first class entertainment.

As the guests entered the venue, they were treated to the lounge's 360 degree bar, a gorgeous terrace view and witnessed a live fashion shoot.

The anticipated fashion show began around 6pm allowing designers such as Salford fashion graduate Ester Ndongala, upcoming designer Adjoa Osei and architect and artist Zekaryas Solomon to showcase their fantastic array of work.

Erzumah Ackerson showcased her Bestow Elan collection and Nicol Denoir displayed her pieces made for the woman who wants to enhance her curves.

In addition, Democratic Republic of Congo native Tina Lobondi and House of Jola used their creations to both wow the audience.

The musical performers dazzled in equal measure with Miss Deena Luvit opening the show being closely followed by Segun, both welcoming guests with their performances.

Zimbabwean songstress Cynthia Mare gave a rendition of her track Catch Me When I Fall and to close the section was Nadia who gave a crowd pleasing performance.

Special guests in attendance included entrepreneur and designer Alexander Amosu, Vanessa Amadi of VA-PR, talk show host and broadcaster Princess 'Deun, Tunji Amure of HiTV, CEO of the ZAFAA Awards Sam Anwuzia, singer Tinashe, celebrity hair stylist Angela Plummer, New African Woman Editor-in-Chief Regina Jere, Taponeswa Mavunga of Ndeipi PR, event promoter DJ Abass, CEO of Mahogany Models and Fashions Finest Sola Oyebade.

Amongst the VIPs who attended all the way from Nigeria were Encomium Magazine Editor-in-Chief Abiola Aloba, designer Uche Nnaji of Ouch, Y Magazine Editor-in-Chief and Red PR consultant producer Adebola Williams and Miss Omeruo representing House of Nwocha.

The editor-in-chief Sinem Bilen-Onabanjo and the publisher Familusi Akin Babajide's speeches following the fashion show were warmly received by a full house of distinguished guests and the prize giveaways shortly after were thoroughly enjoyed with guests winning a multitude of goodies from a bottle of Moet to fragrances for him and her to 'I LOVE 9ija' shirts courtesy of OUCH, amongst others.

All guests' musical tastes were catered to throughout the evening with a mix of DJs including DJ Longers providing hip-hop, Afro beats, old school and RnB ensuring that the dance floor was kept busy.

Meanwhile the culinary delights of jollof rice, chicken and plantain to name a few, impressed and filled a number of bellies while the drinks were flowing aplenty.

Serving the dual function of entertaining and informing, performers, designers, industry professionals and guests were given the chance to network; making new friends and bumping into old ones, creating a friendly atmosphere from the afternoon right up into the evening.

The FAB team would like to take this opportunity to thank RS Lounge, StylishDay Party, all the performers, designers, models and special guests who attended the event and showed us a wealth of support.
