UK based Nigerian fashion designer, Emmy Collins will be holding a workshop for young, budding and aspiring designers tagged Lagos Fashion Workshop on  Saturday 22nd December, 2012 in Lagos.

The workshop is absolutely free and will cover all aspects of fashion designing including branding, product placement, seasons, business of fashion, manufacturing (a key factor in design and fashion), fabrics, who the buyers are, low end/top end of fashion, business plan, short and long term projections and so on.

According to Emmy Collins, the workshop will be very interactive and will serve as a launch pad to other workshops. “I will endeavour to touch on all the nitty gritty of fashion; the very glamorous and not so glamorous aspects of it and will also answer questions from participants. I clearly understand that one seminar is certainly not enough to cover all these aspects of fashion. However, I hope that this will serve as a launch pad to organising a monthly or bi-monthly workshop where Nigerians, with genuine knowledge and passion, will be invited to lecture participants on selected segments of fashion.”

Participants are encouraged to come with any pieces they have designed “so we all can analyse the quality and highlight areas of needed improvement.” 

The prerequisite to register is TALENT & PASSION. “I can’t teach those, you have to have them,” he said.

Date: Saturday 22nd December 2012
Time: 12PM – 3PM
Venue: Hillside Gardens Guest House 7b Abimbola Close, off Kasumu Ekemofe, off Saka Tinubu, Victoria Island, Lagos

      Great that he’s taken this initiative and is actually at no cost to attendees.
      He speaks about the Nigerian fashion scene a lot on twitter and improvements he would like to see. Good to know he’s backs up his words with action!
