The Foundation Course in Fashion Design; Start Date 9 February 2013!

Hello People!!!  Welcome to my month of birth! :-D  Yup... February is CLEARLY my favourite month... and I really can't wait to see which gifts I'll get! :-D

BUT before then, I have got to tell you about the Foundation Course in Fashion Design starting on the 9th...  As always, I'll give you a brief overview of what the Course is about...

The Martwayne Foundation Course in Fashion Design is targeted at fashion enthusiasts who want to learn how to sew in order to run a fashion business.  Now many people underestimate the work that goes into running a fashion business.  I can tell you, for free, and I have said this in previous posts, that being able to sew is just ONE aspect of the business, and this is what the Course highlights.  More importantly, the Course teaches the fundamentals of fashion design as a discipline, focusing on the creative, theoretical and business sides of fashion.  

So yes, you will learn how to sew and draft patterns but more importantly, understand the different stages involved in the production process, understand what the industry is about, learn how to come up with your own designs, develop the documentation required in a fashion business and the most important of all, learn how to charge appropriately for your end products.  Ok well... the truth is you can never charge enough for your hard work, including your creativity and your time, but at least, you will be able to identify your direct costs and overheads in order to come up with a price point that will enable you recoup your costs and have some left over to run the business.

How long will the whole Course take?

Great!  I'm glad you asked!  

The Course is split into 3 modules, 2 levels per module; making a total of 6 levels.  The shortest of the levels, Level 1a which will last 6 weeks (excluding breaks, if any).  Classes for Level 1a are on Saturdays only from 3pm to 7pm in Surulere, Lagos; perfect for the lifestyle of a busy professional or entrepreneur.    Levels 1b - 3b will last a total of 12 weeks each. 

The idea behind the Course is for students to begin to utilize the knowledge immediately and test the principles taught in class, identify problems on a small scale and correct certain errors before they take plunge and launch out full time.  It also enables students conduct proper research on matters concerning production methods, their target market, etc.

For those available during the week, we are about to launch a weekday option for interested students.  Classes will hold twice a week, in the same manner as the Saturday-only option.  This enables students who have more time complete the Course in a shorter period of time.

Registration Details:

The great thing is that payment for the Course is per level.  Level 1a is N37,500 and there is an extra one-off fee of N7,500 for the toolkit.

Payment for the Course is made into the "Martwayne Dynamiques" account, 101 223 3897 at any Zenith Bank branch.  Once we get the notification, your seat is reserved on the Course.  As said earlier, classes begin on the 9th but registration will continue till the 23rd of February class or until seats are full as seats are reserved on a first come, first served basis.

So there you go.  Here's hoping we've provided enough details about the Course and answered a few of your questions.  If you, however, have more questions, you can contact me on 0809 787 6075; 0813 298 7824, via e-mail: or chat to me via Blackberry, PIN 296CB9FD.

Here's looking forward to welcoming you on the 9th.

In the meantime, do enjoy pictures from Group 5 (not sure I posted these earlier).  I'll try to collate the pictures from the current Group 6 and post them later.  And I really should post pictures from Level 1b in another post.... just to give a feel of what you're up against in Level 1b.
