La­gos stood still for a gath­er­ing of VIP guests at the Africa book sign­ing of fash­ion icon Naomi Campbell’s book, “Art of Beauty’. hosted by lux­ury re­tailer ALARA, guests got up close and per­sonal with ms Campbell over canapés from Nok, and drinks from event part­ners Veuve Clic­quot and belvedere who made sure cham­pagne and cock­tails flowed. The evening kicked off with event com­pere Denola grey wel­com­ing guests, and fire­side chat mod­er­a­tor Cuppy Otedola start­ing a con­ver­sa­tion about the busi­ness of fash­ion be­tween Reni Folawiyo and ms Campbell. Naomi looked back on her model­ing ca­reer, char­ity work with var­i­ous hu­man­i­tar­ian causes in­clud­ing the man­dela Chil­dren’s Fund, her visit to Nige­ria for ARIse Fash­ion Week, and meet­ing the Dream Catcher kids of Iko­rodu. There­after was the sign­ing of the two vol­ume Art Col­lec­tor’s edi­tion fea­tur­ing acrylic bust cover by Allen jones, signed pho­to­graphic print by Paolo Roversi and jean Paul goude, and images by leg­endary pho­tog­ra­phers. The Art edi­tions, which are sold out glob­ally, are now avail­able ex­clu­sively on the con­ti­nent at ALARA La­gos.
