If you’ve read my blog for a while, you would know how much I admire Tara Fela-Durotoye. I am constantly in awe whenever I hear about her latest ventures. Earlier this year, when she won the Future Awards, Young Person of the Year Award, I was in shock! Not because I thought she didn’t deserve it but because I was sooo impressed that at only 30, she has achieved so much.
I first heard about Tara about 10 years ago when I read an interview/feature on her in Remi Diagbare’s Fashion Flair column in Vanguard Newspaper and I’ve followed her progress since then (FYI I loveeeee Remi, I’ve been reading her column religiously forever! She totally deserves a bigger platform like a magazine!)
Anyways, Tara will be celebrating her 10th anniversary in the makeup industry on Sunday, 14th October 2007 with an event at the Muson Centre. The event billed for Shell Hall MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos, will feature a mini-fashion show, courtesy Momo Coutoure, a cocktail party and the unveiling of a new fragrance line, Inspired.
The advertising campaign for the fragrance which was shot by Kelechi Amadi-Obi and TY Bello will feature various inspiring women.
Below are some pics highlighting the different facets of Tara’s budding cosmetics empire as well as one of the ads for the fragrance.
That’s it for today!
