Not only are we hosting the most exciting fashion show of the year, we are paying special recognition to some very important Nigerians, taking a look back at the achievements of the country and we'll also make time to discuss improvements. The Nigeria Independence Fashion Show is truly an evening to connect, celebrate the vibrant Nigerian culture and support a great cause. The Nwannediya Health Centre will be one of the first health centres in Nigeria to be technologically advanced, take great pride in continuous education and training of staff and members of the public and offer affordable healthcare plans. NIFS UK will be raising funds to support this next great investment in Nigeria healthcare.
From the fashion show to the dancers to the entertainers to the celebrity guests to the special recognition awards to the headline act, we know that you will not want to miss this!
