It was an amazing time for fashionpreneurs in Calabar as British Council in partnership with Heineken Lagos Fashion & Design Week gathered fashion houses and brands at the Cultural Centre Complex, Calabar for a 2-day seminar tagged ‘Fashion Focus X Creative Hustle’

The seminar featured talks from renowned fashion entrepreneurs including Olohunde Thompson of Style House Files, Akpos Okudu, Jennifer Onochie, amongst others. The speakers introduced attendees to the various areas of the fashion industry, giving them insights into how it works, how to start, the role of customer service in the creative industry and more.

The event was a huge success as it created a platform for networking and mentorship.

We look forward to more creative events like this coming to our city.
