Music Meets Runway is an annual fashion and music show event, which features fashions by the new era of fashion being presented by live performances by popular music acts, including international artists. Below are photos from the 2012 edition of the show, which was hosted by Supermodel Millen Migese (former Miss Tanzania) and koko master – D’banj.

Over the years, Fashion and Music has created a style storm around the globe. The innovation, ‘Music Meets Runway’ is intended to provide a platform for talented designers, especially those who normally are excluded from the highly competitive world of fashion to showcase their unique art works WHILE talented music artists perform on stage.
To create awareness for new talent and up coming fashion designers, music artists, models, stylists and make up artists to emerge and be fostered toward a future that otherwise may be out of reach. It is about opportunity in a time of recession and hardship.
To promote networking among fashion industry professionals including educators, retail buyers, fashion journalists, trendsetters, tastemakers and consumers.
