Welcome Note!


Welcome to Martwayne! Yes this site is about fashion - no excuses for that - BUT we will be talking about fashion from a different perspective... as a tool for business success!

Everyone loves to look good and yes, majority of us love fashion! But we all know that fashion goes wayyyyy beyond stitching and there is a lot more to "it" than mere sewing!


SO

"Fashion Beyond Stitches" will discuss how to turn your love for fashion into money-spinners, sharing knowledge, ideas and skills necessary to run successful fashion businesses.

Oh of course this blog will not be complete without our very own T.Williams ranting and raving about her personal challenges as a fashion entrepreneur in the Nigerian Fashion Industry. But don't worry, there are also happy days and all her personal stuff will be filed under the label "T.Williams".

SO enjoy, follow & subscribe to our blog, post your comments, ask questions, offer advice, and spread the link! Cheers!

Learn about Colours & Fabrics & How to Combine Them at FEC 3!

Hello People!!!

Yes!  I am doing things just a tad bit differently and launching Volume 3 of the Fashion Entrepreneurship Course even though my flyer is not ready yet.  Long story but hopefully... it should be soon enough.  But seeing time waits for no man and I am about to send out mails advertising this Course, I thought I should let you guys know about it first!

SO!  What are we discussing this month?!  Yup!  The heading says it all!  Colours & Fabrics!



Truth is every individual uses colours and fabrics and colour is a VERY important element of design.  Whether you're a professional working in a bank, or you're an event planner or an interior decorator, you need to understand colour and fabrics and how to use them effectively.  Individuals also need to understand which colours are suitable for certain body shapes, e.g. light colours as bottoms make pear shaped bodies look bigger and the likes so really.... this particular course is for everyone not just fashion entrepreneurs.  

I remember when I was at KPMG I used to choose the colours I would wear depending on which meetings I had.  Why?  Because colours pass certain subliminal messages to people and most times they worked.  If I had to pick up a cheque from a client, I knew which colour to wear, if I had to meet with a tax official, I knew which colour to wear.  After all, there's a reason why Men in Black wear Black! 

And of course!  Weddings!  My goodness!  Enough weddings these days.  Well known concern of brides and event planners is the issue of colours.  A major headache I tell you!  And how about interior decorators.  I could go on and on about why this topic is vital to everyone but need I continue???!!!

SO!


Without further ado, here's me introducing the Fashion Entrepreneurship Course (Vol. 3) Drumroll please...... :-D
