Lagos Fashion and Design Week ended last weekend and you are one of those talented designers who applied and have been slaving away to get your time in the spotlight to no avail. If I just described you then you need to get in the running to win N1million naira and more!
MultiChoice Nigeria presents The Fashion Protégé, one of Nigeria’s biggest fashion design competitions.
The show which is in search of Nigeria’s next big fashion star, was created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of MultiChoice Nigeria. The Fashion Protégé is a 5-episode Nigerian reality television series that will air later this year on DSTV’s AfricaMagic.
Contestants guided by mentors, will compete to be recognized as Nigeria’s next big fashion star.
On deciding to create the show, a representative from MultiChoice Nigeria says “As MultiChoice turns 20, it is important that we invest in our communities that have kept African stories alive and foster the next generation of creative talents. This will create an opportunity for them to tell their own stories through their designs.”
Designers, Fashionistas, Fashionistos, Stylists and every fashion savvy individual, this is an opportunity you cannot miss. Get your creative and resilient spirits energized as you will be tested on how to succeed in the cutthroat fashion industry.
