Taking my Father's advice to learn something apart from getting an Education led me to Fashion Designing - CEO Outfits by Edein

By Kemi Mobuse - Monday, June 20, 2016

Acquiring an education alone, several entrepreneurs have discovered is no longer the only key to being successful, if not followed up by practical knowledge . 
I think those who advance the furthest in life tend to be those who acquire knowledge at both ends of the spectrum and acquire it in a variety of ways.

It was therefore a good thing for the CEO of Outfit by Edein, to take her Father's advice and got practical experience even while Schooling, since that was how, she discovered her talent for fashion designing.

She granted an interview to KMB where she talked about her brand journey...excerpts below;

KMB: Can we meet you? What do you do?
Edeinmoma: I’m Mrs modupeola Lawal, I am a fashion designer, the name of my fashion outlet is outfit by Edein
KMB: Can you pinpoint the exact moment that you decided you want to become a fashion designer?

Edeinmoma: Okay, since I was young,  my father had always told us we must learn something aside from going to school, we used to help him in d workshop during our holidays  until we finished ssce...so I got to know that, I have the ability to design/ create something..So, when I was in 100l, I developed more interest in fashion... and I went ahead to learn fashion designing

KMB:Did you go to a Fashion School or learnt elsewhere?
