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!

The Foundation Course in Fashion Design - New Stream begins 21 July 2012! Register now!


Hello everyone!!!  Hope you had a fab weekend!  I know I did!  Extremely busy but I slept all day yesterday... for the first time in ages!  And you know what?!  It felt great!



So I haven't said anything yet about the Foundation Course starting on Saturday the 21st!  Why?!  Because I was waiting to edit this particular flyer to reflect the Foundation Course but seeing it is taking like forever to get the Corel version so I can edit the text, I have to make do with this one in the interim.  I'll update it when I get the edited one sorted.  As we all know, we cannot delay our work simply because time waits for no man.  

Just a fraction of Stream 4 participants...

So yes!  We completed Stream 4 of the Foundation Course in Fashion Design on Saturday!!!  Here's a picture of some of the students who completed the Course.  Phew!  WHAT a long day!  But it was great and more people are ready to move on to Level 1b which is also starting this Saturday!  :-D  
 
Now I often get enquiries on what people stand to gain from the Foundation Course and for me, the best testimonial is the fact that I can now confirm that at least 3 people have started their fashion businesses after just Level 1a.  For those who already have fashion businesses, their operations have improved tremendously.

In fact, a student of mine who completed Level 1a with the last set came over to market her products to me.  I was really pleased with her... well up until the point when she decided to apply some of the principles I taught during Level 1a on me as a customer!  Imagine that?!  Next time, I must remember to include a caveat on how those concepts I teach really should not apply to your teacher!  Haha!  But I really am glad that she applied the principles and she has promised me to write a testimonial on this blog.

So what am I saying?!  Although the Foundation Course is split into 3 modules, 2 levels per module, you do not have to wait till the end of all 6 levels before you start your own small fashion business.  And you don't have to quit your day job or your fashion business out of frustration either.  You can take the course at your pace and apply the principles and lessons learnt in each level, using your friends and family as test runs and learn from those experiences before you launch out fully!  In fact, you can even make back the money you spent on the training and save enough for the next level.  

So without saying too much, here are the contents of the mail I sent out advertising the Course and pictures from the just concluded Stream!

Enjoy the pictures and I look forward to you registering for either the Rerun of Fashion Entrepreneurship Course (Vol. 1) or the Foundation Course in Fashion Design (Level 1a).

Cheers!
