The designs on display at the pop-up shop in Selfridges' departmental store on Oxford Street in the UK express the deep creativity, ingenuity and originality of African designers, attributes which the designers share with the GTBank brand.
The exhibition has already attracted several reviews and visits by fashionistas from all over the world and is set to be a high point at the store throughout December 2012 and January, 2013.
Commenting on the GTBank - Selfridges project, the Managing Director and CEO of Guaranty Trust Bank plc, Mr. Segun Agbaje said that supporting and promoting African art such as fashion internationally is one of GTBank's major Corporate Social Responsibility thrust.
He stated that "we will continue to forge strategic partnerships to create platforms for the contributions of Africans to the different genre of Art as an organization positioned to harness the hidden potentials in Africa".
Furthermore, Ndani TV powered by Guaranty Trust Bank is an online platform which seeks to promote the best of Africans in music, fashion, writing, technology and business. The platform tells their story from a uniquely African perspective and puts their works within the digital space.
