Le Reve Events, the creators behind the hit stage production, Music Meets Runway (MMR), has announced preparations for the third edition of MMR scheduled to take place in a few months at the Eko Hotel Expo Center, Victoria Island, Lagos.
This third season will be called ‘The MMR Icons Edition’, this year the team choose to spotlight, recognize and honor the most amazing and undisputed fashion & music icons that have changed the industry and put Nigeria proudly on the world map.
“It’s our third year anniversary so we wanted to do something very inspiring, prestigious and glamorous!” says Jennifer Olize, the producer of MMR. “We want our guests to enjoy every second of the event and leave with a memorable experience. This season our expectations are high and the bar will be unparalleled. So expect nothing but the very best!”
Rationale of the Black Panther and the Iron Musical Throne
The Black Panther signifies power, struggle, freedom and empowerment of the black race. MMR 2013 is celebrating music & fashion icons who have been recognized internationally and as such have put us (Nigeria) on the world map. “Panthers” are known for their extra-terrestrial strength and these iconic pioneers are determined men and women who are not only passionate but believe in hard work.
The Iron Throne represents the political relationship between both fields (fashion and music) metaphorically. Fashion has always needed music to get to a certain level of acceptance by the public. And this year, as seen in “The Game Of Thrones“, MMR is filled with suspense, intrigue and lots of power; the fashion gurus will literally ride on music to showcase their inherent creativity.
