The Difference Between a Fashion Designer & a Tailor...


SO I've been meaning to write on this topic for a while now.... and I finally decided to do so today after having yet another chat with a top don in the Fashion Industry who felt the same way I did about the craziness that goes on around here.  

The first time I was asked this question was on some TV interview last year and of course I answered the question without batting an eyelid.  :-D  But since then, I have asked both new and practising designers the difference between the two terms and it turned out that  whilst everyone, more often than not, knew who a designer was, none of them actually got the definition of a tailor.

So here we are setting the record straight.... with of course "The University of Google", "The Internet Institute" & "The Wikipedia College" to support my claim.

Right! So our Unofficial "National Holiday" is Over... WHAT NEXT?!

Imagine the shock when we all woke up this morning to see soldiers on Lagos streets... and of course the eventual revelation that the price of petrol was now N97 and that the strike was over!  Ok forget that I am quite upset that I can no longer sleep for hours on end and not feel guilty about it (which was my highlight of the "holiday"), I am MORE upset about the fact that Nigerians seem to have suddenly given up!  Just like that!
