The night of Sunday, July 30th had begun with 12 finalists who were painstakingly selected from about 300 hopefuls who turned up for the auditions on Saturday, July 29 2017 at the Federal Palace Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.

On the glitzy night of the finals, there were three stages. The first saw the 12 contestants strut in Abiola Oyesola’s designs, inspired by ancient Yoruba culture and created for the modern, urban woman.
