We’re set to break mo­nop­oly of La­gos as en­ter­tain­ment cap­i­tal –Maryam Ab­dul

The Punch - - SCOOP - Sun­day Scoop,

t goes without say­ing that La­gos State, Nige­ria’s com­mer­cial cap­i­tal, is the hub of the en­ter­tain­ment and fash­ion in­dus­try in the coun­try. How­ever, a fore­most fash­ion house in Abuja, Mima Midas De­signs, is out to break the La­gos–abuja di­chotomy as it is set to host its maiden fash­ion run­way and ex­hi­bi­tion in the fed­eral cap­i­tal city.

In a chat with the Chair­man and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Mima Midas, Mrs. Maryam Ab­dul, said the fash­ion house was a one-stop shop for male and fe­male wear in­clud­ing kids’ out­fits.

Ac­cord­ing to her, the fash­ion house also has an in­sti­tute where de­sign­ers and crafters are trained with the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s state-ofthe-art fa­cil­i­ties.

She said, “We try as much as pos­si­ble to be creative and give the best to our clients and that was why we coined our motto, ‘be im­pos­si­ble not to be no­ticed’. When you put on our out­fit, you should be able to wow the au­di­ence or guests at what­ever event you at­tend. In our school, we have been do­ing won­der­fully well as our stu­dents and their par­ents can at­test to that be­cause they are very creative and can con­ve­niently, within three months, make cloth­ing that can stand out within and out­side the coun­try.”

Speak­ing fur­ther, Ab­dul said the first edi­tion of Mima Midas De­sign’s fash­ion ex­hi­bi­tion, run­way and re­lease of its 2019 col­lec­tions, tagged ‘lim­it­less’, would take place on De­cem­ber 2 at the NAF Con­fer­ence Cen­tre, Abuja. “We want to prove a point that ma­jor events can also hold in Abuja; it doesn’t al­ways have to be in La­gos. It may not be an easy task but it is some­thing we can achieve,” she stated.
