Justifying the rationale for the emphasis on entrepreneurship, she said: “To sew is one thing but one needs to understand the business aspect of it. People must realise that while talent can get you far, the application of proper business principles or concepts will determine many of those who succeed in the field and, regrettably, those who fail.”

The showcase gave a great sense of why JACCD remains the gold-standard for creative schools in the country and has been the first in many regards.
