Parents are invited to support children who aspire to become fashion designers | The Guardian Nigeria News


Creative Director of Qubraz Designs and Fashion Academy, Ms. Yewande Hakeem-Habeeb, called on parents to support their children who are interested in developing a career in fashion design.

She made that call by delivering her keynote speech at the 2022 fashion show held at Greensprings School, Anthony campus in Lagos.

According to her, fashion design is a very rewarding profession with a low barrier to entry; therefore, parents should encourage their wards if they show interest in the profession.

The Principal of Greensprings Anthony Campus School, Ms. Magdalene Okrikri, while corroborating this claim, said that the annual fashion show is organized to create career discovery opportunities for students fascinated by the fashion industry. .

Okrikri said, “At Greensprings School, apart from academics, we are keen to help our students discover their talents and prepare them for the future. With this in mind, one of the things we do is to identify our students who love fashion design, and then we give them the opportunity to plan and execute the annual fashion show, to enable them to acquire a first-hand experience in the art of putting together a fashion show.

“We believe the show would help them discover a career path and whether they consider fashion design as a major profession or a side business in the future, the learnings from the show will be extremely helpful to them.”

The school’s art and design teacher who coordinated the show, Mrs. Anuoluwapo Adeyemi, also spoke about its importance, saying that the show allowed the students to show their creativity.

Adeyemi said: “The theme for our fashion show this year is High Low ‘#DrivenByStripes’, the theme was inspired by the fact that the High Low style is going out of fashion, so we decided to bring it back creatively while incorporating striped designs. Through the show, our students learned how to design, find fabrics, sew, manage a clothing line and work with models. During the show, we had five clothing lines, with 15 models each, and the event allowed our students to show their creativity with fashion,” she said.
