Good morning good people!!!!!  I am sure you had a GREAT weekend!  I did...even attended a wedding yesterday despite being a bit under the weather.  Y'all know how we Lagos people like to par-ty!!! Will share some pictures at the end of the post :-D

Anywayz, I am starting this week on a good note!  Realised I had not posted my last BN Article up here so I decided to do this first thing this morning before my day gets all hectic on me!  But seeing I like to kill 2 birds with one stone, we have some great Courses coming up soon:

-  The Pattern-Making & Grading with Computer-Aided Design;
-  Design & Fashion Illustration with Computer-Aided Design;
-  Basic Fashion Course for Juniors (ages 9-16); and
-  Short Course in Childrenswear.

Details about these courses will come up soon.

Great!  And now for the article...

How Do I Start My Fashion Business?

Hello good people!!!!!  I'm sure you all had a GREAT holiday!  I know I did!  I am already looking forward to the next one... (who knows when the next one is coming up?!)  Anywayz!  I had a pretty restful one - totally thankful!  And it's back to the hustle and bustle again!  

Haha.... I thought this was hilarious!  I just could not resist!

Ok!  So here is my BN post!  I have actually had this question thrown at me so many times, I knew writing about it was only a matter of time.  Seeing I managed not to lift a finger over the holiday, here is the article which was actually posted on Bella Naija on Thursday.  I made minimal changes to it since I realised it was edited and some portions of my thought process (re: punctuations and brackets) were lost in the editing AND I also added more pictures...

FAB End to Stream 2 of the Jacket-Making & Trousers Course!


And seeing this is a new month and I am all gingered up to meet my half-year resolutions, I thought I'd give you 2 posts in a day!  Haha... FIRST by cleaning up my backlogs of posts! 

And this was one I had been meaning to post since I completed the class especially since I THOROUGHLY enjoyed running the class.  Yes I know I say that for pretty much all my courses but this one was just a barrel of laughs!  And everyone got on soooooooo well and just enjoyed working together, it made my work so much easier!  :-D

Enjoy the pictures!

Learn How to Develop a Fashion Collection & How to Draw from Scratch! Register for our Design & Illustration (starts 4th August) / Fashion Sketching Courses (starts 11th August). Weekend Option Also Available.


And so we have just hit the 2nd half of 2015!!!  How many people have done their personal half year appraisal and ticked off their list of 2015 resolutions?!  I, for one, have not done so - for obvious reasons.  I know I have achieved some of what I set out to do early on in the year even though I am farer from achieving it all.

BUT all the same, I still have 6 months to go and so do you!  And it's never to late to turn your love for fashion into a viable business!  And our third Course for July is our Design & Illustration & our Fashion Sketching Courses! PLUS I have some pictures to show you from the last class.  :-D
