Welcome Note!


Welcome to T.Williams! Yes this is a fashion blog, 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!

Have You Registered for FEC 5?! It's on Saturday the 28th of July!!!



Hello everyone!!!  Hope you had a great weekend?!  I know I definitely did!  Launched 2 successful courses on Saturday - Levels 1a and 1b.  Phew!  My 1b class got more than they bargained for "methinks" with the assignments I piled them with!  Haha!  Now let's see how they can develop the theme I gave them and see the stunning work they come up with.   No doubt you will see pictures on my blog.  After Session 1 of Level 1b, they realized Level 1a was a piece of cake.  Now we're slowly getting into the nitty gritty of the Foundation Course... ha-ha-ha! :-D

A-ny-wayz...

" How to GET the Funds You Need to Start Your Own Clothing Line"

Volume 5 of The Martwayne Fashion Entrepreneurship Course is NOT just another seminar on "how to raise funds". It is an extremely interactive training session which actually teaches you how to fund your fashion business, with or without external funding, and the implications of any funding option you choose.  You just might discover after FEC 5 that you may not even need that external funding after all. 

Our guest facilitator, a representative of a reputable financial institution, will also give an in-depth look at what investors and financial institutions look out for when making investment / loan decisions to enable you understand what needs to be done before you make that pitch to a potential investor or financial institution.

Understanding:

1. How to Start Your Fashion Business on Zero Naira Through Proper Costing & Pricing
