The Fashion Project
The Fashion Project is one of Entreprenelle’s business acceleration programs. It provides its participants with all the business tools they would need to turn their fashion ideas into successful businesses. They’ll get these tools by taking part in an intensive training boot camp where the most experienced, and knowledgeable experts in the field will teach them all the fashion business essentials. Those include Dr. Ghadir Alagabany, Jessica Toutounji, Luna Kawash, Bardees Ahmed Gamal, Yasmine Eyad, and Baher Khairy.
On the 27th of July, Entreprenelle held the Fashion project’s ‘Graduation Night’ at CONSOLEYA. Entreprelle founder Rania Ayman gave the opening speech and was followed by Hanan Abdel Meguid, the founder of CONSOLEYA. Also, 12 graduates presented their fashion ideas to a panel of judges that included Omar Madkour, CEO of CFF agency, Mohamed Samman, co-founder of Longe Black agency, Mohamed Reda, founder of What To community, Doaa Hosny, founder of D Consultant, and Hanan Abdel Meguid. The top 3 graduates were chosen in the end.

The 2nd top project was NeoComfy, it’s a casual and comfy apparel brand that sells both modern and comfortable garments that have distinct African patterns. The cherry on top is that they’re all made from environmentally friendly fabrics! As for the 3rd top project, it’s called Be-Ray, it offers colorful pieces of swimwear, and home and loungewear.
