-Set To Launch 13th February, 2017
The Fashion Academy
The Ade Bakare Couture Fashion Academy has been set up to cater to the needs of those students who wish to further a career in fashion design at a professional level. Nigeria, and indeed Africa, has been identified as the emerging continent to look out for in fashion. Sadly, we do not have many fashion design schools – most fashion designers in Africa set up their fashion businesses with little or no training.
The Academy will train the fashion student from the onset, taking them through a series of courses that will enable them to become professional with a broad understanding of the demands of the fashion industry.
Courses offered are:
Fashion – designing and development
Useful French for fashion
The general fashion training programme covers a period of 5 months; all the courses mentioned above are integral to a person becoming a successful fashion designer.
Ade Bakare studied fashion design in Manchester, England at University College Sanford. In 1991, he set up his label, Ade Bakare Couture, selling his line of day and evening wear to shops across the United Kingdom. Subsequently, he introduced his couture line which has brought him international acclaim. He was seen as a successful alumnus and was invited back to teach part-time at his former college. He also has a degree in education, majoring in History from the University of Lagos, Nigeria.
In 2006, Ade Bakare set up his fashion business in Lagos. Though he is based in London, England, setting up a fashion company in Lagos has given him tremendous insight into the challenges and strengths of the Nigerian fashion industry. He intends to use his international experience coupled with his exposure in Nigeria to the benefit of students studying at the Fashion Design Academy.
The Academy is situated in ikoyi, Lagos, in a three- storey building in a quiet area which is very conducive to learning. Students will be trained by competent lecturers who between them have years of experience in the world of fashion and design.
Attendance will be strictly adhered to and hours are 9 am to 5 pm (Monday to Friday) with an hour’s break at 12 noon. A caterer will provide food and drinks in the school canteen.
Students who wish to study out Of Nigeria can have accommodation arranged for them. [Accommodation can be arranged for overseas students
The tuition fees are N850,000 (Eight hundred and thousand Naira) per student which covers tuition, materials for the course.
