All activities and events of the Epic Show remain the same except that the Saturday show has been moved to Sunday and that of Sunday to Monday.
In a bid to further help improve the Nigerian Fashion Industry, the FFA team decided to put together master classes to run for two days just before the Epic Show. The master class will run for two days Wednesday, May 23, 2018 and Thursday, May 24, 2018 at NEPC Training Facility, Road, Apapa, Lagos. The topic for the master class is ‘How to transform from boutique to Mass Production” and will be facilitated by Jennifer Sutton and Mabel Doe.
The Epic Show will kick off on Friday Morning, with a Fashion conference where those who matter in the fashion industry will take on panel sessions. The conference themed; “Increasing Nigeria’s participation in the Global Garment Production industry” has Her Excellency Hajia Aisha Abubakar, Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment as the Guest of Honour while Mallam Ismaila Zakari(ICAN President) would be speaking at the conference. Jennifer Sutton (Development Director, Fashion Enter/Capital Uk) who is the Headline conference speaker will be discussing the British fashion industry and how Fashion Enter now successfully produces up to 10,000 units a week in a fully compliant factory, and how their practices and approaches can be executed in the Nigerian Garment/fashion industry. Mabel Doe (Technical consultant/Fashion Technologist) who is an expert in her field would also be speaking at the conference. Our Panel session includes Mrs Funmi Ajila -Ladipo (FADAN PRESIDENT), Engr. Chris Oputa (CEO Studio 24), Ohimai Atafo (CEO Mai Atafo) and Morin Obaweya (CEO Morin.O)
Then later in the day the prestigious Fashions Finest Africa Awards will take place. The essence of the awards is to celebrate those who have made a mark in the fashion industry.
All through the three days we will also play hosts to Exhibitors and our marketplace vendors giving the opportunity to fashion lovers to shop till they drop.
The Epic show will continue on Sunday and Monday with a Fashion show featuring Student designers, New and Emerging designers and established designers out of Africa.
After the Fashion show on Monday evening, the Epic Show will be closed with the Fashions Finest Africa Rave where everyone would hit the dance floor and have even more fun with Ace DJ Crowd Kontroller on the wheels of steel.
