About The Fashion Academy Abuja

You remember my media tour at this Fashion Academy right? Here are more details.

The Fashion Academy is a private vocational school and workshop based In Abuja.

Vision: Projecting the fashion industry in a more structured and streamlined manner by creating a new community of professional and skilled designers.

TFA operates in a dual manner. Foremost as a private vocational school; training and impacting practical, cutting, sewing, tailoring, and related skills to our students in a structured classroom setting.

Also, as a ready to wear production center, where our students, individuals and organizations can leverage on our expertise and infrastructure to produce their designs in mass marketable quantities.

Our courses can be taken to improve creativity, to save money by making your own clothes, to enhance your skills for an existing business or to start your own.

We run small classes in a comfortable air conditioned space and offer courses from beginners to intermediate level. There is a lot of one on one support between tutors and students, and because of our open door policy, students have access to our staff even after they have finished a course.

Our tutors are people who run their own business of work in the industry and are expert in their field and run classes efficiently, patiently, and professionally
We run weekday morning and afternoon sessions and weekend classes.

Nina Yusuf-Kwande learnt to sew in 2000. After attending a variety of short courses at the London College of Fashion from 2004-2008. Nina started The Fashion Academy in 2010 teaching beginners fashion design, sewing and cutting skills with a focus of fixing the problem of garment making in Nigeria starting in Abuja. It’s all been about TFA since and continues till date to be Nina’s dream to get us to a place where we can create clothing with the same standards as the international world!

In 2015, Nina’s “ByNinaKwande” label was birthed. With her gathered knowledge and skill, Bridealwear and Occasionwear was the obvious choice. Ranging from bespoke gowns to simple ready to wear occasion wear, fusing Africa (Inspiration) with International Bridal and occasion wear is the path she aims to explore with designing her pieces.

TFA Journey So Far…

The Fashion Academy started in the year 2000 with 5 students as a home based business
TFA has trained over 400 students through short courses which has enhanced and started small businesses in fashion
The school continues to grow in quality, content and encouraging start-up stories.

What’s To Come?

Our restructures courses are broken down to specialized areas. We have done this to enable students book for an area to focus on and short periods to achieve this. This also means the cost can be spread out and more convenient.
Our students, individuals and organizations can now get their designs produced in mass marketable quantities at The Fashion Academy’s new production center.
Our fashion show comes November 2016.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
