Ratu Erma Olierhoek is an Indonesian dentist who graduated from a University in Jakarta and who subsequently went on to do a fashion design course in Manila, Philipines. The AFROSIA fashion line creator is extending her skills to fashion event organising alongside some associates with the launch of the Ratu International Festival - a festival which aims to showcase emerging talents in fashion, movie and music at different locations but with the main event taking place at the widely used Maison du Parti Bonanjo in Douala from the 29th to 31st October 2015.
Interested participants will be requested to submit their fashion, music and movie materials via designated channels which will allow the member of the jury on the panel at this festival to select the best according to their criteria. 10 fashion designers, 3 movies and 9 music artists will be given the opportunity to participate on the day.
Sponsored by major brands such as Maggi, Brussels Airlines, G4S, the event initiative has apparently attracted national and international personalities who are keen on exploring the creativity. The event sounds major exciting however, we hope the event will be:
1) Well planned, well organised in keeping with its "international" status.
2) Educate the talents chosen ensuring that they do leave with more knowledge that would benefit their business brands than what they came with.
3) Entertaining to the guests.
It is about time we have a well executed event in Cameroon and this could be the start...
