I can’t say Nigeria is lagging behind when it comes to fashion, we
are definitely trying out best and we will definitely reach that level
where the world will start patronizing our design more than they do now. As for the government, they are doing their best but I feel they should
do more. I know they are trailed with so many problems but if they can
just solve the basic problems, then they have taken a good step
forward They could provide seed capitals to startups in the fashion
industry
and also build fashion schools and organize orientation programmes for
the youth on fashion.This would go a long way in opening up the industry

Well, In 5years, I see NFH serving fashion entrepreneurs in
Nigeria and in diaspora, I see a company providing sales solution to
millions of entrepreneurs in the fashion industry, when we say fashion
entrepreneurs, we refer to everyone who owns a business in d
industry.. Designers, makeup artists, jewelries, hairstylists and more
