27 Jun. 2017 - Fozia Endrias, who is a renowned Ethiopian
fashion designer based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia was invited by the Seychelles
Broadcasting Corporation (SBC) to participate and showcase her talents in the ‘STILIS
MOD’ Programme, alongside local participants.
The designer and her assistant were
invited to do a short presentation about her career as a fashion designer at
the Seychelles Institute of Art and Design (SIAD), on Thursday 8th
June 2017. She had the opportunity to interact and share her artistic journey
with students pursuing a full time programme in Fashion and Textile.
It must be acknowledged that her
presentation was incredibly insightful. She brought the reality of the design
and fashion industry to both students and staff who were both mesmerized and inspired
by her journey. They were able to ask questions and seek clarifications
concerning Fozia’s designs and collections towards the end.
Fozia has a background in Architecture
which has given her a great understanding and a strong foundation in design and
creativity. She usually gets her inspirations from her immediate surrounding;
both physical and emotional situations.
Only last year, she graduated from a
fashion design school and was awarded the best student of the year from two
campuses. She was also a first prize winner of a competition organized by Next
Fashion Design College, the same year.
