Alex Olusanya: FG Must Ban Imported Dresses To Boost The Fashion Industry by TB9ja: 9:03pm On Dec 19, 2019
Popular Abuja fashion designer and consultant and CEO of Alex Tailors, Alex Anthony Olusanya,, alongside other stakeholders in the Nigerian fashion industry have called on the Federal Government to rescue the Nigerian fashion industry from imminent crisis.

Speaking to a cross section of journalists in Abuja, Alex Anthony Olusanya advised President Buhari to help the fashion industry by taking the same step taken in the Agricultural industry which encouraged Nigerians to start patronising home-grown rice.

"The fashion industry is a multi-billion industry for any nation, and Nigeria inclusive. Many young educated fashion designers and even many of the uneducated ones by the roadside shops depend on this as a source of income. This in turn brings money back into the account of the government, this is why our government needs to be part of the fashion industry and boost it more to grow."

"The major submission to his Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari is to order the temporary stoppage of all forms of Importation of fashion materials,imported clothes and so on that we can easily get here at affordable prices; basically Nigerians need to start patronising Nigerian designs. Look at what is happening in the agric sector; more Nigerians are now consuming made in Nigerian rice, the farmers are smiling to the bank and more money goes around the economy. We need that type of intervention in the fashion sector and it will be a win-win situation for all."

Alex Anthony Olusanya, a Theatre Arts graduate of the University Of Ibadan also advised that the government should make it mandatory for every government establishment set a day of the week aside when all their employees put on strictly traditional attires and made in Nigerian dresses as a sign of patriotism.

"Our law makers and other people in position of authority continue to wear traditional attires, and i must commend them for that. I see no reason why other government workers can't follow suit. You can wear traditional dresses that will still look trendy on you. Most of our designs at Alex Tailors are made in a way that you can wear them in the midst of people wearing suits and you won't look awkward" .

I don't take the Nigeria fashion serious until they get a better brand and moreover why will you want to stop foreign wears because you want to sell yours, it's a thing of choice here, I can choose to wear any brand that makes me look good. This man needs to understand that fashion can only sell when you do everything to beat the standard of your competitors. the first pic got me laughing grin

Do the people that make the Jean's have two heads?... is it not the same blood that flows through your veins that goes through theirs?...

What has all the jeans you have been wearing added to your growth in life?

Okonjo wear majorly Ankara and today she is a more renowned African than you and myself with our Jean's.. lipsrsealed

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Let our politicians in this regime stop wearing foreign designers.

Let them start patronizing Innoson Vehicles.

Let them stop wearing imported Jewelries.

Let them stop having medicals Abroad.

If General Buhari can do these, then I can consider taking him serious.


Merry Christmas in advance to my Nairaland family

That can truly be helpful. Some countries did it in the past to boost their domestic productions.
