Rationale of the Black Panther and the Iron Musical Throne
The Black Panther signifies power, struggle, freedom and empowerment of the black race. MMR 2013 is celebrating music & fashion icons who have been recognized internationally and as such have put us (Nigeria) on the world map. “Panthers” are known for their extra-terrestrial strength and these iconic pioneers are determined men and women who are not only passionate but believe in hard work.
The Iron Throne represents the political relationship between both fields (fashion and music) metaphorically. Fashion has always needed music to get to a certain level of acceptance by the public. And this year, as seen in “The Game Of Thrones“, MMR is filled with suspense, intrigue and lots of power; the fashion gurus will literally ride on music to showcase their inherent creativity.
