Galeries Lafayette Doha hosts meet-and-greet for designer Banke Kuku

After the overwhelming response to the last session, Galeries Lafayette Doha once again organized a meet-and-greet session with Nigerian fashion designer Banke Kuku on March 16, 2023. The event was also a platform for launching her latest collection of occasion loungewear, exclusive jalabiyas and kaftans.

Supported by the Embassy of Nigeria in Doha, the meet-and-greet session was attended by His Excellency Ambassador Yakubu Abdullahi Ahmed, members of the Nigerian community and the general public.

The session was organized in Galeries Lafayette’s women’s section on the first floor where the incredible collection was showcased by a model. The creations of the Lagos-based fashion designer are inspired from Nigerian fashion with a Middle Eastern twist.

Celebrating Nigeria’s emerging fashion talent, Banke Kuku’s collection tells African stories through vibrant silks. She showcased her collections and also offered a preview of the four exclusive pieces created for Galeries Lafayette Doha. The colorful, bold, long floaty pieces are perfect for Ramadan.

Speaking about the event, General Manager of Galeries Lafayette Doha Mr. Kevin Gerard Pender said: “We love the uniqueness that Banke Kuku brings to Galeries Lafayette Doha’s brand portfolio. Our clients love this dynamic partnership and love the bright bold print and colors that a signature Banke Kuku outfit offers.”
