The fashion industry in Nigeria has come a long way from being accredited to the rich, eccentric or less ambitious to becoming one of the most sought after and fastest growing industries in the country. Despite the fast expansion of this industry, many are still unsure about how to navigate the industry. Fashion is an industry filled with so many possibilities that it can be a bit daunting on how to start and explore the fashion terrain.
It takes someone who has navigated through that path to know how to cast light. Enter Sophie Hedley.
