The Heineken Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2016 announces Fashion Focus X British Council Creative Hustle seminars set to hold in different states in Nigeria as part of the line up for this year’s event.

The Heineken LFDW 2016 kicks-off with the Fashion Focus X British Council Creative Hustle Seminars and LFDW Fashion Focus Scouting. Led by British Council, the LFDW Fashion Focus official partners, Fashion Focus will commence by hosting a series of informative seminars facilitated by established creatives across Lagos, Enugu, Calabar and Abuja.

Targeted at aspiring and emerging fashion entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 – 35, with a vision to support the professional development of emerging fashion talent in Nigeria.



The talks will introduce attendees to the various areas of the fashion industry business, giving them an insight into how it works, and an idea of which area they might like to work in. The talks also aim to build young people’s awareness about job and career opportunities that are largely unexplored in the fashion sector in Nigeria mostly in the backend, relating to management and technical vocations.

This year, LFDW Fashion Focus scouting will take the form of a competitive open process aimed at selecting 5 Fashion Focus candidates for HeinekenLFDW 2016. Fashion Focus is also supported by African Fashion Fund
