When 2 or more top African designers come together to speak on the Business of Fashion, you are certain to get enlightened and educated. Following the success of the Lagos edition, the Business of Fashion Conference is set to hold in the city of Abuja next month September. All fashion industry stakeholders are invited to the event to be presented by the Fashion Designers Association of Nigeria and hosted by award winning London fashion brand, AsakeOge. The Business of Fashion Conference is aimed at emerging fashion entrepreneurs: students, graduates and those already in the industry who have a keen interest in fashion and want to set up their own fashion business. It focuses on business opportunities and examines how to identify, manage and develop new products, new ideas and new services. There is an increasing recognition by the fashion industry that entrepreneurial and small business management skills are an essential component of the fashion entrepreneur’s portfolio of management skills together with leadership, team building, communication and networking. This seminar is set out to achieve three main objectives – Support the growth of the Nigerian Fashion Industry, Nurture and guide emerging fashion entrepreneurs to start up, survive and grow their business and demonstrate how fashion graduates can use entrepreneurial skills to explore work opportunities within the fashion industry.

With several multi-award winning speakers like Lanre da Silva, Mai Atafo, and Modela lined up to speak at the conference, this is sure to be an opportunity not to be missed if you are based in ABUJA or visiting the capital city next month.
