FR:2 = FASHION REVOLUTION RELOADED
We are concerned with the inability of transforming innate talents in the Creative Industry to the main stream of SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) in the country. And for this reason, we are out to scout, select and provide the young, talented and promising enterpreneurial the platform to achieve their dreams and ours' of making Nigerian and African youths believe in themselves by digging deep into their innate talents and transform it to entrepreneurship. This will make them to be responsible and reliable in their various departments in business and also, change their opinion on believing that travelling abroad is the opium of the life of a third-world country youth.
Hence Kowry Kreations Media, a non-profit and non-governmental organisation, came up with the project Youth Empowerment Project, under which we have Fashion Show, Art Exhibition, Musical Concert, TV Reality Show and more.
And to actualize this project, we started with the Fashion Show last year in collaborations with the Committee for Relevant Art (CORA) and now we are going to have the second edition of the project tagged: FR:2 (Fashion Revolution Reloaded) with the support of INSPIRO, an event management company, also the producer of Nijazz and Lagos International Jazz Festival.
We have chosen three young and vibrant designers, Denrele Edun's (Soundcity mad-presenter) desinger, HerBay Stitches is one of them. Allen Culture, a well known designer in OOU and Buga Fash, the UNILAG designer. Denrele, Goodie, the musician, C'mion and many more will grace the runway.
