Even when all doors remain closed, God will open up a new path only for you. Be thankful!”  That is my mind set
Beyond the razzmatazz, the highpoint of the event was the presentation of free sewing machines to less-privileged women who had earlier received free training from Needle
Kraft, under the Free Fashion Skill Empowerment Program.

Tese, an ex-beauty queen had always wanted to pursue her talent and passion of becoming a Fashion Designer, but her parents directed her to study law so she can become a lawyer and able to provide free legal service to the family and community at large. In obedience she pursued a legal degree at Ambrose Ali University Ekpoma where she graduated with LL.B Hons Degree in Law. While on campus, she did not lose sight of her dream as she was constantly engaged in Fashion & Entertainment activities and by this time she had already started designing and sewing her own clothes by herself even without any formal training in Fashion/Designing, indicating that this talent must have been a gift from God.
So it did not come to many as a surprise when Tese decided to abandon the Legal wig and gown for tape and scissors in fulfilment of her dream of being a Fashion Designer.
After her stint and tutelage under a couple of renowned Fashion Designers in the U.K and France, she decided to launch her own label – Needlekraft Couture.
Needlekraft Couture was formally launched in 2008 and has since then become a household name in the Fashion Industry and society at large. Her keen sense of form, color, and design, with the ability to incorporate her magnificent creative ideas into simple-chic clothing has stood her out in the fashion industry. She never compromised quality for commercial success. Instead her success came over time, by just being herself, but overseeing every aspect of her creation from the sketch pad to the market place.
The phenomenal growth recorded by Needlekraft Couture in less than 3 years of operation led to the vision of founding a world class Fashion Academy where she can impart fashion knowledge and skills to young men & women, thus advancing the growth of the fashion industry. Hence Needlekraft Fashion School was launched.
Since inception the school has trained and empowered over hundreds of  young men and women in various aspects of fashion and the student enrolment count has hit 200 marks,not to talk of the yearly panache events being staged
