Samsung Design 4 Life Fashion Show - May 2013 - BellaNaija329

On Friday 10th March 2013, global electronics brand Samsung officially launched its sleek new smartphone Galaxy S4 at the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos. Tagged Samsung Design 4 Life Fashion Show, the event highlighted the distinctive qualities of the phone with side attractions including a fashion show and musical performances.

Hosted by Samsung brand ambassador Kate Henshaw and comedian Seyi Law, the event saw celebrities including Samsung brand ambassadors Banky W and Ali Nuhu as well as Dakore Akande, Basketmouth, Weird MC, Elohor Aisien, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Kiki Omeili, Ify Ejikeme, Obi Emelonye, Tricia Eseigbe-Kerry, OC Ukeje, Bovi, Segun Arinze and Charles Novia in attendance.

The fashion show which was organised to celebrate young designers, saw these design labels – Maureen Aurora Daniels, Clemas Couture, Unseen Designs, Tracy Zika and Karelle present their creative pieces.

Emmanouil Revmatas – Samsung’s Director of Hand Held Products, got on stage to demonstrate the peculiarities of the smartphone.

There were entertaining performances by dance group Dance Na The Main Thing, Shaydee and Skales but the most thrilling was Banky W’s Yes/No performance as well as his unexpected performance with Wizkid.

After the show’s fashion, music and phone presentations, some guests bought the sleek new device. According to Olajumoke Okikiolu (Marketing Manager, Hand Held Products, Samsung Electronics West Africa), the phone which retails for N 108,000 is now available in stores.

She also added that Samsung will provide customers in Nigeria and other pan-African countries with a 24-month “Accidental Damage from Handling” (ADH) warranty to cover screen and liquid damages to its new, flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone, at no extra charge. The warranty includes two free repairs in the event of accidental damage to the screen of the device.

      Kate Henshaw, If you thought it was ok to wear those shoes with your toes hanging out, you clearly need to pay a stylist to make those decisions for you. Public image is very important for a celebrity. It should never be underestimated. You are a beautiful lady and an accomplished actress. Do not let petty fashion mistakes detract from your brand

      • Sbaby May 15, 2013 at 12:08 PM

        Pease get a seat and leave her alone

        • Anonymous May 16, 2013 at 4:55 PM

          Abegi you know she could have looked better than this. This outfit did not let her be great! or are you the one who styled her?

          Plus if it is to find size 42 shoes, it is not impossible. I have large feet too.

      • NecoleNwaMama May 15, 2013 at 1:11 PM

        LMAO

      • asgrl May 15, 2013 at 4:20 PM

        Obviously you’re one of these small feet hiefers :D (I’m hating) who have no clue how difficult it is to find good shoes in a size 42!

    • Sweet baby May 15, 2013 at 12:08 PM

      Those beads were just wrong kate

    • blackcoffee May 15, 2013 at 12:14 PM

    • Bellar May 15, 2013 at 12:27 PM

      what a night. I LIKE i wish i was had been there o. But there is a group of boys feeling the beat wht their hands up, that is fun and if i may add the models looked hawt – both male and female, truth is naija men are mostly always on point! our women – tis a story for anoda day! GBam

    • Amy May 15, 2013 at 12:47 PM

      Tunde Demuren ur denim pants are an eyesore, infact ur total outfit was a mess darling. And I agree, kate looked smashing but wen u look all d way down and those ugly shoes, she shud have just worn plain black stilletos. And the fashion show outfits looked dated, they all look like they came from the 90s esp the ladies.

      • Aduke May 16, 2013 at 8:45 AM

        Thought i was the only that noticed Tunde’s jeans o! Hahaaa…Eyesore indeed! Whole look, ‘horreebuu’!!

        • Aduke May 16, 2013 at 8:53 AM

          one**

    • Janey May 15, 2013 at 12:48 PM

    • lola May 15, 2013 at 1:58 PM

      don’t nigerians get tired of fashion shows? una no dey tire? it’s getting boring abeg…

    • nnenne May 15, 2013 at 2:21 PM

      love me some Dakore. she kept it simple and chic. who noticed Banky was almost the same height with Kate even with her 6 inches? the shortness of a man is indeed the tallness of a woman. i used to consider Banky not tall o.lol

    • Abiola May 15, 2013 at 2:38 PM

      Seyi Law….smh

    • uby May 15, 2013 at 2:40 PM

      Senior Shedrach aka Shaydee, you look like a tush agbero.
      Thats all.

    • Sssstchewww May 15, 2013 at 2:44 PM

      ashy knees (or “kneels” as nigerians will call it) and elbows is a No-No

    • lolly May 15, 2013 at 2:51 PM

      i`m officially tired of seeing this “kiri kiri” star material

    • nich May 15, 2013 at 2:55 PM

      This is why samsung will do better in the next few years than apple, they believe in africa as well as other continents, i mean generally asians believe in the existence of african market with a population of one billion. but apple only believes in the american, asian and european market.

    • nene May 15, 2013 at 3:39 PM

      all for phone launch kwa. kate’s dress is too short, even if she has the body, it’s too short and it seems like she’s seeking for attention. soo happy seeing benita okojie, loved her songs growing up. sandy from big brother, you still make me LOL, u r just a funny woman..what are u wearing?

    • Omo1 May 15, 2013 at 3:45 PM

      Hmm..I see Weird MC is hear with her girly again, could that be her girlfriend

    • omojeje May 15, 2013 at 4:02 PM

      Kate sweetie, hell no to d whole dressing mate! the French connection dress is not so for you *just my opinion* (before some mumu jumps from the bush and lash out) it looks sooo not appropriate. there is something about it not working for me.

      i would prefer the dress on a younger girl or a little bit longer in lenght wise for you then *thats classy* u feel me? it looks trying to hard with those toes out of the shoes. nat cool.

      Above all meeeen you have got that hawt banging body! damn! You are blessed Kate! omo to sure! respect!

    • Alero May 15, 2013 at 4:16 PM

      Kate looks beautiful but I think her dress is a lil too short.Mary Uranta looks good head to toes.

    • jb May 15, 2013 at 4:32 PM

      Go ahead Kate… with your bad self!! You look too HOT! #hottie4life

    • omojeje May 15, 2013 at 4:35 PM

      who be benita @oyin? your frnd? lool ignore me

    • Babious May 15, 2013 at 5:12 PM

      odd event.

    • Toyin May 15, 2013 at 7:38 PM

      Chai, naija can overdress sha. Just for a phone. I see Samsung babes movie coming out soon.

    • Cool cat May 15, 2013 at 9:14 PM

      Aunty Eunice efole, yes if you manifest a wedding dress it might happen for you, good luck.

      I guess Maureen is now a designer but this is a horrid collection. Must every Nigerian event feature a fashion show?

      Ify big bro NIG looks fierce in the bbnig alumni pic but Sandra’s leggings, ooooh childddddd. Nooooo

      @asgrl, i suffer the same fate and i literally hate open toes shoes as a result. Pumps pumps pumps, fashion should fit your features and you don’t have to wear everything. Kate’s shoes are hideous, absolutely tacky and take away from the complete look which should have been gorgeous.

      Banky jumping for joy, too much cash

    • L.A Chick May 16, 2013 at 5:36 AM

      Dakore looks sooooooooooooo good! Natural hair is always a crown of glory!!!

      • EL LOCO May 16, 2013 at 11:35 AM

        Is this rather obnoxious statement in anyway related the fact that your avatar (presumably you) has a crown of glory on?

        • L.A Chick May 17, 2013 at 6:29 AM

          If I may I ask, what makes the comment obnoxious? Unless you are these wanna be intellectuals who use words without knowing their definition, please care to explain how my admiration for Dakore’s look is offensive? Because in case you may not know, “obnoxious” means “offensive.” So since you want to sound clever, please tell me in which way my comment is offensive to you or any other person for that instance? Regarding your second concern, this doesn’t deserve an answer.

    • Aduke May 16, 2013 at 8:36 AM

      Its just a phone launch and some people are dressed wrongly/overdressed. Kate looks beautiful but she completely failed with that dress length. Waaaaaay too short, age inappropriate length and also very wrong length for the event. To me she looked very out of place on that stage with that mini. The dress is gorgeous, but would have been perfect n classier if it had been knee-length.

      Seyi Law tho!…Hahahaa

    • EL LOCO May 16, 2013 at 11:13 AM

      well damn. Charles Novia & Segun Arinze? c’mon son!! y’all forgot Soni Irabor’s name? and why does skales always look like a kid dressed by his mom all the gaddem time? MY GORD!!!

    • Stanley Akunne May 16, 2013 at 12:34 PM

      Trust 9ja,we believe strictly on FASHION vs SWAG.bravo to men wey sabi.

      i can see my frnd looking sooo good dancing to wizz father’s tone..lol…so nice she’ looking sooo good and sexy as always.kate so sorry but your dress is a no no for me.

    • abii May 16, 2013 at 2:16 PM

      I was at d show. It was fun tho. Wizkid actually upped d ante of d show o! Banky was so humble and really, d men dressd better! Benita Okojie looks grown n beautiful! why ddnt BN mention her name? think her sister works wt samsung, she was doing like exclusive red carpet interviews. I was too shy to win d phone! :(

    • loveth O. May 16, 2013 at 4:39 PM

      how can ppl invest in a country where there is no electricity? i dont get

    • idontknowmyname May 17, 2013 at 5:08 AM

      Everyone has turn into ‘fashionista’ abi? all you fools complaining about how inappropriate Kate is dressed, please when you get to her age wear wrapper and over size dresses. you wonder why your husbands don’t touch you and why they run to young girls. Stupid foolish mentality. If she was dressed in big rope now it will be another story of ahh find a stylist. Nigerians una sabi run mouth. the funny thing about it is deep down most of you wish you could dress like that and actually look good doing it. Shut ur bloody mouth up. Lady looks good and that’s it. Now run off and change ur closet your husband go soon dump u. ( my only problem here is her shoe sha)

    • Allegra May 18, 2013 at 5:14 PM

      The female models need to do something about their legs……….uneven tone, too much scabs and the list goes on. Being a model is not about being thin alone, they need to have a fresh look all around. Not feeling them at all!!

    • ibrahim July 3, 2013 at 9:32 AM

      you all look great… Why are we people like this? Is it a crime to keep your mouths shot? And most of you guys that complains about there dressing manner doesn’t even have one good cloth on your hanger…. Stop insulting the celebrities if you wanna be one in life…
