NFB AWARDS TO HONOR NIGERIANS IN THE DIASPORA ON FRIDAY MAY 27TH 2011 IN HOUSTON, TEXAS - USA

The office of the Nigeria Fashion & Beauty (NFB) Awards has set a goal to annually celebrate the best of Nigeria’s vast fashion designs and beauty accomplishment amidst celebrities, awards presentation, fashion exhibition, cultural display, indigenous evergreen music and traditional dancers.

On Friday May 27th 2011 in the city of Houston - Texas, USA. Founding Fathers Incorporated (FFI), organizer of the annual NFB AWARDS backed by the full faith and credit of the Nigerian community will recognize and honor 15 Nigerians in the Diaspora for their conspicuous positive impacts to the development and promotion of our ethnic fashion values at the 4th edition of the annual event.

Prestigious NFB awards will be shared amongst stake holders in the dynamic fashion and beauty industry namely Fashion designers, Style analysts, Fabric merchants, Hair stylists, Fashion boutiques, Hair braiders, Accessory designers, models/modeling agents, Shoes & handbag designers, Beauty products suppliers, Fashion and entertainment enthusiasts.

As the nomination criteria for this award remain stringent, the award becomes difficult to obtain for all but the socially prominent figures. Simply put, only a select group of people who have positively influenced the Nigerian fashion scene will ever carry the NFB Awards Trophy. It instantly identifies them as mouthpiece for the fashion industry, and most importantly their names will be written in the annals of Nigerian fashion as supporters and promoters of its great ideals.



The 2011 awards night is envisaged to be an evening of music & dance, high fashion & beauty and of course jollification & encomiums.
Sizzling side attractions include stand-up comedy, dinner/cocktail, fashion show, cultural display, traditional dancers and much more.
This year’s event will also witness the investiture of four Nigerian women as fashion icons of all times.
