Osas Olumese Wins FAA Fashion Contest

Osas Olumese emerges winner of the Fashion Contest at FAA’s “Next Level" Workshop for Fashion Designers

On Friday, 3rd September, 2010 at the offices of FATE Foundation, Osas xxxx emerged the winner of the fashion contest at the “Next Level” workshop put together by Fashion and Art Academy for Fashion Designers.  The one day workshop which had many students and alumni of Fashion and Art academy as well as other fashion designers in attendance was spiced with a fashion show and competition by the students of Fashion and Art Academy supported by Da Viva, a leading textile company. The 27 piece runway showcase of styles in Da Viva prints was a display of the creativity of the budding fashion designers at their best. The show which had a male and female segment was dubbed “The reality Fashion Show” because the students modeled the clothes they produced themselves. The effect was that of various shapes and sizes of models on the runway which represented regular figures which many people in the audience could relate with. 

The collection ranged from ready-to-wear accessorized pieces to couture pieces with patchwork including tops and bottoms, dresses, gowns and evening wear. At the end of the show Osas Olumese emerged the most outstanding designer for the female category while Kenneth Efia emerged the most outstanding designer for the male segment. Osas’s signature rouched blue top with looped strings and matching multilayered A-line skirt captured the attention of Lisa Folawiyo the Chief Judge of the competition. In her verdict, it was a detailed but equally practical and functional piece that Osas Olumese put together. The budding Fashion Designer was offered scholarship by Fate Foundation for a 2 week business training programme for her victory
