  • International Designer visits SIAD

    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. 

     

    As a young designer and entrepreneur, Fozia Endrias has set up her own clothing brand which was established in December 2016 which she manages herself. Fozia does fabric manipulations, hand embroideries with both traditional and imported fabrics. The design the company produces are very much influenced by her Ethiopian and African identity and heritage.
