Guaranty Trust (GTCO) Fashion Weekend is back after a two-year hiatus and is scheduled to hold on November 12th and 13th, 2022, at the GTCentre, and we are excited!
In the past years, GTCO fashion weekend has been home to an exciting lineup of designers and fashion and style enthusiasts from different parts of the world. Once more, we can anticipate exceptional street style and avant-garde and spellbinding shows from talented designers.
This year’s event will feature a variety of GTCO fashion week mainstay designers, including Nkwo, Ituen Basi, and Pepper Row, among others.
