The fashion designer said the nation’s fashion industry could thrive if the efforts of the stakeholders in the sector received the much needed support from government.

“Government collaboration will hasten its going more international’’.

He attributed the slow growth of the fashion industry in the country to lack of collaborative efforts of stakeholders in the area of fashion exhibitions and fashion week.

“I expect new opportunities for the fashion industry with this present government and to create more employment for people but none is coming.

“With government lending a helping hand, we can mass produce materials to be sold abroad and at the same time employ people,’’ he said.

He called on the leaders in the business to begin to change where and how their products are made.

“When this happens there will be innovation and creativity beyond our wildest dream because what carries the fashion industry is creative energy and imagination, not the money,’’ he said.
