Coco Chanel during her remarkable career in fashion once said, “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
Indeed. Fashion encompassses numerous disciplines: business, law, music, politics, anthropology, journalism and so forth. As such, teaching the next generation of fashion industry professionals all about fashion is very important.
House of Henri’s Henrietta Agboola has been doing just that with her school Fashion & Art Academy located in Lagos. Recipient of the Best Designer of the Year Award 2005 and author of fashion books ‘Sewing Made Easy’ and ‘Jewelry Craft and Bead Stringing Made Easy’ Agboola’s Fashion & Art Academy offers courses in fashion design, millenery, jewelry crafting, bridals and more.
