PRESS RELEASE: 360 Creative Innovation Hub Thanks All Partners, Sponsors and Participants in the 2019 Fashion Acceleration Programme (FAP 2.0)
360 Creative Innovation Hub’s Fashion Accelerator Programme 2.0 (July 2019) lived up to expectations with massive improvements from the 2018 programme. Trainings were more extensive, providing participants with more exposure and better prizes. Fashion House Iremide won first place at Pitch Day with Fashion House X and Fashion House Y coming in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.
Unfortunately, since Iremide’s disclosures did not comply with Emory University’s (our cash prize sponsor) requirements we were unable to award the Fashion House the 2019 cash prize.
360 Creative Innovation Hub remains committed to driving the growth of the next generation of Africa’s Fashion Industry. Our Hub at Surulere, Lagos Nigeria remains open Mondays to Saturdays for walk-in sign-ups and long-term engagements.
360 Creative Innovation Hub’s Fashion Accelerator Programme (FAP) is an accelerator programme trains each cohort of fashion entrepreneurs over 3-months to provide them with the critical business and entrepreneurial skills to build thriving businesses in the fashion industry.
The Fashion Accelerator Programme uses a strong academic programme to deliver its comprehensive practical curriculum to equip fashion entrepreneurs with globally relevant skills. Over its two-year run, 40 entrepreneurs have been trained successfully across various specialties.
Announcements for FAP 3.0 will be made soon: young fashion entrepreneurs across Nigeria should anticipate this as they begin to put together their creative Fashion Ideas for a chance to be a part of the biggest FAP ever!
We are grateful to our partners, sponsors, facilitators and to every fashion innovator that is part of our journey here at the 360 Innovation Hub.
The future is super bright and we are excited about the possibilities!
