Creativity, style at Rhoda Michael’s fashion show
Fashion designer, Rhoda Michaels recently organised a show for her graduating students to showcase their talents and skills.
The 52 graduating students, at the event, hit the runway with models displaying designs. Among them was a 15-year-old boy, who also exhibited his skills. Bridal dresses, children, casuals, red carpet outfits, women and men’s wears, were on display at the show.
The event was organised to assist them launch their brands and showcase the practical aspect of what they learnt.
Chief Executive Officer, Rhoda Michaels, frowned at the erroneous belief that tailoring/fashion designing was meant for school dropouts.
He said: “Fashion is science. It is mathematics. You can’t be here, if you do not know mathematics. We teach pattern drafting, which is similar to technical drawing. If you are not intelligent, you can’t cope. The 15-year-old was trained for three weeks while others learnt for three months, six months and even one and half years…
“The Nigerian fashion industry has evolved tremendously. Gone are the days when you saw older designers, but now, you see young designers everywhere. I see our designers competing on the global scene. They will excel because they have been trained properly.”
Nollywood actors, Yinka Quadri, Muka Ray Eyiwunmi and Wale Sanusi graced the occasion.
