GUARANTY TRUST BANK LAGOS FASHION AND DESIGN WEEK SCHEDULE
The Nigerian fashion industry as a whole thrives on the existence of designers, models, stylists, photographers, public relations consultants, retailers, textile designers, manufacturers, fashion blogger, fashion journalists and other creatives in the industry to keep the cyclical wheels of the industry churning from process, product and to the final user. Guaranty Trust Bank Lagos Fashion and Design Week Awards (GT Bank LFDW) aims to promote the development, growth and promotion of creatives in the industry by nurturing, fine tuning, harnessing and rewarding their skills as well as providing them with a solid platform for achieving their goals.
BRITISH COUNCIL INTERNATIONAL FASHION ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR
The International Fashion Entrepreneur (IFE) awards, specially created by British Council, is unique in that it rewards the talent and initiative of young creative entrepreneurs from the fashion industry, recognising the central role they play in the development of a competitive and sustainable creative economy. It champions those who find new ways to take creative fashion work to audiences and communities – e.g. new models of production, distribution, and value – highlights the wider social, economic and cultural benefits in doing so.
LFDW YOUNG DESIGNER OF THE YEAR
It is of particular concern to LFDW to provide ongoing support to young creatives via a platform for presenting their work. With the young designer of the year award, MTN and British Council offers young fashion designers the opportunity to be participants at targeted seminars and workshops facilitated by British Council and a chance to exhibit their collection in front of a select audience at Lagos Fashion and Design Week.
