MTN British Council Young Designer of the Year

It is of particular concern to MTN, British Council and Style House Files to provide ongoing support to young creatives and to give them a platform for ideas and creations. With the young designer of the year award, MTN and British Council offers young fashion designers the opportunity to be participants at targeted seminars and workshops facilitated by British Council and a chance to exhibit their collection in front of a select audience at the MTN Lagos Fashion and Design Week. It is our aim to promote and nurture the talents of today’s young, creative innovators, so that tomorrow’s creative industries can continue to play a major role in the economy of Nigeria and the rest of the world; and to provide young talents with a platform for their ideas and designs.

How do we define a young designer?
