We finally got our snaps back from Guap Gala 2022

Take a look back at HUNGER's time at this season's hottest event ticket, Guap Gala.

Sponsored by Instagram, Netflix and Adidas, this year’s Guap Gala was the ticket of the season. With the stage set at the historical Natural History Museum, Guap Gala celebrated creative excellence by exhibiting and awarding creatives across 21 categories. 

In case you’re unfamiliar with Guap, the Black-owned magazine recently developed into a creative agency for brands and events — and was founded seven years ago with a view to showcase emerging, underrepresented and creative talent in London. 

On a buzzing red carpet, guests sported elaborate fairytale & folklore-inspired garments. Looks included gold suits of armour, bedazzled garments, intricate embroidery, feathered durags, and cowrie shell suits. And amongst the performers were Jamilah Barry, Kojey Radical, Jvck James, and Daya Soul’s choir. 

The awards given out included Content Creator, Podcast of the Year, Next in Music, Next in Film, Hustler/Entrepreneur of the year, Model and more.
