IBADAN’S LEADING FASHION SCHOOL all Repackaged, Bigger & Better- DGV FASHION ACADEMY.

It’s sure been an amazing year. I must not end this year without sharing with you.  For some, the year kicked off well, for some , it kicked off on shaky grounds;  whichever way it went, here we are all, still standing and having all the Grace and opportunities to have a better 2015.

I am not really a fan of New Year Resolutions, but I belive at the same time in planning ahead, so whether you call it new year resolution or plans , visions, projects or any other grammar, the most important thing is PLAN! Without concrete plans, how do you intend to succeed?  Nothing happens by chance, in fact when opportunities come to someone who isn’t prepared it ends up being wasted without being noticed. You have every reason to sit and decide what you personally want your 2015 to look like, then let Fate and Grace take its place. When your plans are solid and beautiful, and when your mind is set towards it, things tend to work in that same way to favour you because your mindset has a lot to play in you achieving your purpose in life.

    The Ball is in your courts, determine to be proud of yourself in 2015. No one has the power to help you except YOU. !
     Don’t sit waiting for that dream job, while waiting, keep yourself busy, it tells your employer you are simply an asset. If you have the dream job already,  try keeping your free hours to a good use to improve yourself. And remember, Employers can make decisions that may not favour employees, so have a good backup plan. Are you a student or a youth corper, invest in your tomorrow;  in all these,  I still insist one of the best ways you can backup is by acquiring a skill. It pays. .. It’s a great plus to your CV.

I remember when I was in school and i decided to add skill, I left full time classes for part time, to enable me combine. And here i am today, thankful I made that decision. Since I left school, I’ve never applied for one job, instead I’m empowering and helping others find feet and build themselves as business owners too. We all can’t be self employed, but we all should be strong enough to face the future come what may.

When DGV FASHION ACADEMY started,  the plans were laid out and step by step we are going higher. So when you start that dream, increase by the day or you’ll get thrown out of the race.

image

    Come 2015, we are taking the pace higher. It’s a whole new Scheme and Curriculum. Our courses are now certified by the government, Students will be taking special examinations that will back up not only the skill but also their CV. The advantages?  Our certification now comes in different degrees, grades and stages, giving everyone opportunity to find a place no matter the level of their education. Also, some certification can be added to your CV in getting into the Civil service. For those who intend travelling abroad, these certifications come in extra handy. We are also opening up opportunities for our students to be able to extend their training for those who want to learn more outside Nigeria, by consulting for them and linking them to the best school for the training they desire. All these and more…… what are you still waiting for?

Tell yourself it’s time to take 2015 by the Horns, tell someone to get up and swing into action too. DGV FASHION ACADEMY is the way to go….
Plan , ACT and Step Forward. 
Have a beautiful year ahead and make it a year you will ever be proud of.

There is No Christmas Without Gifts— Dress-For-Less 2014.

While growing up, every child grew to believe in Santa or “Father Christmas”. What made us believe them was the gifts, at least someone remembers we should get gifts and enjoy Christmas. It was fun, the Christmas spirit is always strong in every child’s heart.
Now I look back and see, not only kids love getting gifts, adults love to as well. Though it may not always happen :|.  These thoughts and many more led me to a decision last year……
Plus the thoughts of how do I make my little contribution of making Christmas merry for those around me.
   I met a man last year who made me appreciate the little things I overlooked. If you have been following our blog, you would have heard of Mr Sunkanmi ‘ s story. Who overcame his physical challenges, joined DGV Fashion Academy, and has turned out to be a great fashion designer today.

    After Mr Sunkanmi joined us,  knowing what took this man to get himself back after the accident and incidents that led to his being confined to a wheelchair,  the idea of raising money to support his career came. We needed to get him a computerised sewing machine to ease his stress.
Then we thought of balancing the equations, we wanted to raise money and also we wanted to make some other people happy.  That was how Dress-For-Less came up. We made clothes, beautifully made outfits and subsidised the total cost, sold them at lowest prices possible. Clothes that could worth #4000, went for #500,#800. We reduced to barest minimum and we were able to put smiles on other faces while we were also targeting another big goal.

The event came out well, we sold out and got part of the cash needed.
We added up and May 29 , 2014 during our Graduation ceremony, we surprised Mr Sunkanmi with the gift of a computerised sewing /Embroidery machine ,an industrial iron and more course time scholarship. (DRESS-FOR-LESS made it easier)
It was after this that he proceeded and mastered his Suit making Classes which has been his dream ever before he got involved in the accident. His joy that day knew no bounds, tears and emotions went through the Hall. Many were touched and encouraged……

We have thus decided to keep this Christmas spirit alive at DGV. We may not be able to reach everyone,  but we can still do our part and Give Back to our community in the little ways we can . To put smiles on people’s faces again, we started over 4 months ago to sew and compile the clothes to sell at highly subsidised rates. Lovely Unisex outfits, for you. Part of the proceeds from this year’s sales will equally be used to empower someone,  details to be unveiled after the event.
