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!


"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!

What Happened @ the Creative Business Expo 2012...

Hello everyone!!!  Hope you all had a great weekend!!!  I had an excellent one and now I am back in full swing ready to face FEC 3 on Saturday!  I finally fixed my laptop screen thank goodness!  I didn't know I had to "jack" the manual to be able to make the easy transition from a Windows to a Mac but it takes getting used to I guess.  But anywayz, here I am!  Hope you all are making preparations to register before Wednesday for FEC 3.

So yes!  The Creative Business Expo which happened last Thursday & Friday @ the Whitespace!  Excellent event!  I really must commend Dumebi of The Bulb Ideas Ltd. for such a great initiative.  Though I was a speaker, I also learnt a lot!  And I met enough interesting people...  Makes for great networking!  PLUS!  There was enough to eat (free food at a free event!) - light fingerfoods and cupcakes and free make-up! :-D

Well y'all know how I love to share pictures.....  Enjoy them!

HA!  What dost thou think?!  Very nice huh?!  NOW you know what you missed out on! :-D  Don't worry, I think another one is planned for September so you have ample notice to be at the next event!

Before I sign out, I would like to thank everyone who honoured my invitation to the event.  I feel so......errrr.... (what word can I use...) honoured and humbled by it.  Thank you so much Jonathan for giving up your trip.  It must have taken a lot to make a u-turn on your way out of Lagos and I am really thankful for the support. 

So what's next on the agenda?!  Yes!  My mentoring session at Yaba College of Technology tomorrow.  I've been invited to speak to students on Entrepreneurship. :-D  I am getting there "small by small" as they say.  But I really am thankful that at least people want to listen to what I have to say and yes I have A WHOLE LAWT to say :-D  Good thing is it's just a chat so I don't have to prepare a presentation or anything.  Just to present myself.  And present myself I shall... :-D

Okies then!  FEC 3!!!  People please register on time so I know the number of people I am preparing materials for.  Take out your discounts and pay the balance into the account by Wednesday please.  Much much MUCH appreciated!  

You have a great week y'all!
