I attended a cocktail media parley at the Fashion Academy Abuja on Thursday night. It was a great time to see how that academy has trained fashion entrepreneurs and employing them as well as providing a market for them..They are indeed redefining fashion . We saw designers like Elfrieda Abia, Stephanie Nwobodo, Aisha Abubakar Achonu of Aisha Abu-Bakr luxury designs, Doris Nwaebo, Nkechi Okereke-Tony, Shipinen Tseayo,, Stella Itoya and also Farida Musa Halliru all alumni of the Academy headed by Nina Yusuf-Kwande.
We were shown around the different classrooms! And study centres and their production centre aw well as their Showcase design with Ready to wear clothes for sale. The Fashion Academy caught my attention with their mass production factory where they can make any designers work come alive. I also had fun meeting fellow bloggers like Belema of Tatafo Naija, Cynthia of www.naijacynth.com who also doubled as the PR organiser for the event, Isa Ozo of Abuja facts, my girl Obianuju of Leadership Newspaper online, also Kolo kenneth Kadiri, the development focused Jeremiah Agenyi, Ofi of Nigeria Info Abuja amongst others. See some amateur pictures from our facility tour.
