Well known for showcasing exclusive designs from Africa’s latest fabric collections, FAB Night Out will also have spectacular displays
from designers drawn from across Africa, as well as performances from some of the continent’s finest artistes. ‘‘Guests can look forward to a night of endless drinks, dancing and shoulder-rubbing with some of fashion and music’s finest, so dress daring and arrive on time’’ FAB founder Familusi Akin Babajide , a well known bespoke suit designer and entrepreneur says.

Born January 25, 1978 and raised in Lagos, Familusi Akin Babajide (FAB) is believed to be a reincarnation of His grandfather who was a tailor and passed away a few weeks before he was born. In 2001, when he was 23, he discovered his interest in making his own clothes, having traded in clothing and accessories for a few years. Mostly self-taught, the young designer used his background in the Sciences to do research in Fabric, Fit and Finishing to create winning pieces – and the first shirt he ever produced was mistaken for a Jermyn Street product! With the applause and exclamations that came from clients, friends and family, the brand was born; and Exclamations Couture has since focused on setting the standards for the tailoring of Shirts and Suits in Africa.

In all, 26 awards will be given out to deserving talents at this year’s FAB Night Out including a special recognition category for Deola Sagoe.
The event is produced by FAB Magazine, and supported by Vlisco, Trace TV, Beat FM, Pattaya Oriental, Zapphaire Events and Barcadi.
FAB Night out debuted in 2010 as a platform to recognize and celebrate talents with the best, offering every calendar year with a total of twenty six award plaques to reward deserving talents.
