With the aim to take the Nigeria art and fashion to the next level and to ensure a self reliance generation, fashion designer, Princewill Obinna Iwueke also known as Willz Obinna has called for the promotion of fashion and crafts in schools across the country.

He made the call when he paid a visit to his alma matta, Beryl Comprehensive College, Portharcourt, River State.

He has also called on more schools in the country to promote art and fashion among their students.

Speaking at a recent fashion show organised by the students of the school, he said: “To me, organising art exhibitions and fashion shows, or generally providing the necessary support needed to teach the subject would help raise a generation that would take the Nigerian art and fashion industry to the next level.

“We recently did our 2021 fashion show, themed The Underaged, and based on this theme, our students showcased six clothing lines that brilliantly incorporated facemasks into their designs.

“Through the guidance of the teachers, our promising clothing liners did the sketching of their designs, sourced the fabrics made the dresses and managed fellow students who modelled the designs.”

“The show was a success, as it lets our students see that they can also express their creativity via organizing impressive fashion shows like the one they see on TV. From the students’ performance during the show, it is obvious that Nigeria is blessed with a lot of young talents and I believe that our art and fashion industry would receive more global recognition in years to come, especially if more schools give extra attention to creatively teaching the subject, as well as organizing art exhibitions and fashion shows.”
