    Jaguar awards? But, really, what’s the meaning of all this fashion awards?? Can there just be one that is central to the industry? Why must every Tom and Jerry start an award program, in the name of innovation but then only recognize those already in the know…. in their common circle. Not quite creative nor innovative if you ask me.

      Shut up. How many music and film and fashion awards exist in other countries? And how many other fashion awards exist in Lagos? It would have even been more sensible for you to say there should be none at all than to complain that there are too many.
