On Tuesday, 7th of May 2018, some of our fashion design and tailoring students visited one of Africa`s foremost contemporary fashion designers, Mai Atafo in his atelier. The students took a tour of his workspace and were exposed to a lot of sophisticated tailoring equipment and incredible Mai Atafo pieces. They also asked a lot of questions mostly centered on his business structure and processes, as well as the source(s) of inspiration for his breathtaking designs. Mai Atafo answered all their questions and encouraged the students to believe in themselves.
The excursion was indeed an eye-opener for the students as it encouraged them to believe that with diligence and persistence, they could surpass their dreams. This is one outing the students would not forget in a long time. They went home with life-long lessons that we believe would go with them through various phases of life.
