The Lagos State government is harnessing the creativity of the fashion industry to provide youths with skills and employment, a reason the Ministry of Wealth Creation and Employment organises a yearly fashion exhibition to expose youths to opportunities in the cultural and creative industries, DANIELESSIET reports.

One sector the Lagos State is eyeing opportunities for youth engagement is fashion. This follows demands for garments.

For analysts, this is an industry to watch with its potential to drive industrial transformation and create jobs.

Buoyed by this, the state government is investing in building youth capacities to accelerate fashion production as well as developing an industry that will allow full industrialisation.

Addressing a fashion exhibition themed” Keep moving” organised by the state Ministry of Wealth Creation and Employment, in collaboration with Mac 89 Xperience, its Commissioner Mrs Yetunde Arobieke said the government has set its eyes on boosting growth through fashion.
