Raymond Ukaegbu: Why I wrote book on fashion show production - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The publisher of SUPREME Magazine, Raymond Ukaegbu, has revealed reasons for writing a book in fashion show production, reports 
Book unveiled by guests: Title: ESSENTIALS OF FASHION SHOW PRODUCTION by a GOCOP member, Ray Ukaegbu, Publisher of Supreme Magazine @ITREALMS
Ukaegbu, who also is the South-South zonal coordinator of the Guild of Corporate Online Publishers (GOCOP), unveiled the book at Ogeyi Place (former Le'Meridien Hotel) in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, January 24, 2023.

According to him, the fashion industry has turned into a huge sector of the global economy.

He told a select-audience at the book unveiling that apart from giving back to an industry that shot him to limelight over the years, there is need to provide a guide to fashion show production and the inner techniques that go with it.

Ukaegbu said it was important to put the strategic ideas together in book form.

In the introduction to the book, the author said the era of regarding those in the fashion industry as 'not-serious-minded people' or as 'drop-outs' is long gone.

Instead, he emphasised, the industry has contributed a huge amount to the gross domestic product (GDP) of various nations.

The book reviewer, Dr Harcourt White, paid tributes to the communications prowess crowned with two degrees already and a doctorate soon to be added by the author.

Dr White said from the cover of the book to the font choice, pagination, graphics, to choice of language, the book, Essentials of Fashion Show Production, is a unique contribution to the industry under focus.

The erudite scholar and Head of department (HOD) Cinematography at the Rivers State University said the objective of the book is to provide a guide to the fashion industry and urged everyone to strive to read the book.

He said the most striking aspect of the book is the chapter dealing on the origin of fashion shows as well as the chapter dealing on how to become a fashion reporter.

In a goodwill message, the president of GOCOP, Maureen Chigbo, described Ukaegbu as a focused and dedicated leader in the guild.

The president, who was represented by Port Harcourt-based publisher of SilverNews, Mr. Ignatius Chukwu, observed that fashion show awareness is moving to the Garden City, saying it is a huge industry where Nigeria's 210 million populace put on at least two dresses each day.
