11 years after giving it all up for one course (music business), today, I’m all set to launch a new three-piece vision in this building:
1. Lagos School of Design – (www.DesignSchool.ng) – an international academy offering professional training in 13 design courses, namely: Fashion Design, Leather Art, Beads Making, Interior and Event Decor, Cake Art, Photography, Website & Graphics Design, Animation, Mobile App Design, Game Design, Video Editing, Drawing & Illustration, and Creative Entrepreneurship.
2. Black Fragrance Designs Limited – (www.blackfragrance.com) – an innovation-led company offering products and services in the 13 design fields listed above. The idea is, with our in-house designers creating these products and services in commercial quantities, students in the academy will have the privilege to learn not just theoretically, but practically with a touch of entrepreneurship grooming.
3. Black Fragrance Foundation – www.blackfragrance.org – a social enterprise that seeks to reduce poverty and foster sustainable development in Nigeria through business and social innovations that improve access to education, strengthen the creative economy, develop enterprise and promote peace. 20% of the profits realized from the design school and the design company will be invested into the foundation’s projects.
Mainland Office/Campus: 10 Ayisat Onisemo St, off Oshodi/ Apapa Expressway, Sanya Bus Stop, Aguda-Surulere, Lagos.
Island Office/Campus: Plot 77, Eleganza Gardens, opposite VGC, Lekki, Lagos.
Both places open to the public on WednesdayJuly 4th, with a press conference and an opening party at the Mainland office.
Let me know if you’d love to attend.
We give God all the glory.
Congrats to everyone on the Tenstrings Team and you my great friends who have given us all the support to run Tenstrings to this point where we can give birth to another great vision successfully. Thanks!
