    Thank you, Ms. Isioma Aihie.
    The truth is people may want to support local brands but will ultimately have to do what is convenient in terms of their budget. Know your market, and if that market is luxury, high-end, know that you will not get it in a day except you are already part of that strata and have built the network.

    We all understand how hard it is to produce in Nigeria, but designers have to know that three sales will not keep the lights on all month and you cannot shift that heavy a cost to the customer. So maybe attack the problem from both sides, reduce costs as much as you can and price for profit in a more affordable way.

    Accelerate – Thank you so much for featuring discussions like this and making them available online. The panelist was fantastic, the session was very insightful and I learned a lot. Wanted to take a quick minute to laud your effort and show appreciation so you continue to do more of this in the future. Please even if no one comments and you think no one is watching. Just know I am, and very grateful for how well thought out the moderator’s questions were and insights the panelist provided in response (including the trade secrets). Eagerly awaiting your next session!!
