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!

"Building Business Structures for Your Clothing Line" - The Theme for FEC 7


Hello Everyone!!!  Hope you've all had a great week so far!  I know I have had quite a busy one trying to get this flyer out and yes!  Done!  

I am COMPLETELY excited about FEC 7!!!  Why?!  It is the very last in the Fashion Entrepreneurship Course Series.  Wow!  And WHAT an experience it has been.  I have completely learnt a lot during the organization of the courses, the challenges, the running around and yes!  I will miss all the stress that goes along with it but I will never trade the lessons learnt for anything!  Though there is still sooooo much to learn, I guess we just have to cap it off at the number of completion - 7!  (...or so they say...)

So what is FEC 7 about?!  It's about the parts many creative entrepreneurs (including myself) run away from... the Accounting . Legal . Tax  & Administration functions required to run successful fashion businesses.  But as much as we would love to run away from it, we cannot avoid it.  So it is vital we learn how to basically "put it all together" in order to run a successful and viable fashion business.

And this is where I bring all my KPMG experience into play.  It is amazing what you learn in such an environment.  I operated in so many areas from company secretarial duties to advisory opinions, to obviously tax compliance services... - even payroll services.  Amazing what being in the Tax, Regulatory & People Services Unit of such a big firm can do to you.

So yes it will be a long but FUN day, 10am - 6pm, but well worth your while...  Don't worry we are organizing some serious lunch!  And from what I've heard about Tom Associates's lunch packages, it is like a serious PAR-TY!!!  So please register early and claim your discounts so I can book your lunch.

And here's the information I plan to send out about the Course.  As always, there are discounts available for eligible participants.
