    MASTERCLASS FOR WEST AFRICAN FASHION WEEK.24TH AUGUST 2017.VENUE: 271 HERBERT MACAULAY WAY YABA.OPP SWEET SENSATION.TIME: 9AM.

    This event is the first module with the theme “Future Fashion CEOs”. The ideology is to assist all those in the industry how to build and create a successful business for value creation, to earn decent incomes and creat continuity for this industry. Globally fashion is said to net 3 trillion dollars and it is considered to be about 2% of the global GDP. The question is are we earning out of this revenue? What percentage of this revenue is Nigeria attracting into the country? That is why SEWAFW has modeled this masterclass to help us expand our scope on how we see fashion in Nigeria and indeed Africa as whole. We say fashion is a business and big business.

    Our dream is to create the first of its kind African fashion distribution retail chain, this will enable our designers in Africa to interrelate by having their clothing brands in every African retail outlet. As we go along in this Master Class, we will be bring captains of the industry to educate us on how to build our fashion brands and develop to be a known name in the global fashion industry.

    The Master Class will come in 2 phases:

    The Workshop; here we have the various top names in the industry tell us more on how they have built and solved the many challenges and hurdles to attain the heights they’ve are today. It will be an interactive session were the young minds can ask questions and get experienced answers and feed back. A knowledge of your niche market is important.

    The Break out session; this is the session were training on different skills can be acquired. If you have an interest in beading, makeup artistry, photography, leather work, modeling and sewing (fashion & designing) and hairstyling, everyone will break into different sub-groups to participate after which certificates will be awarded to all participants.

    We wish everyone an amazing experience!
