Martwayne | Power Through Fashion: June 2018

Thursday, June 28, 2018

Would you love to be a big part of a wedding? Then become a Bridalwear Designer! Classes begin 16 July 2018.

Yes!  THE Bridalwear Masterclass!  WOW the curriculum is so packed, even I want to be a student. Lol.   Best part is this Course is a collaboration between various experts in their field and you know how we LOVE collaboration at Martwayne!  

SO!  It's no secret I made my wedding gown!  :-D  Well to be honest I tried as hard as I could not to do it myself but when the gown I ordered made me look short and fat (lol you know how vain we ladies can be - and it is one of the most important days of one's life), I decided to churn out a dress.  MUCH to my sister's pleasure!  And to be honest, I'm glad I did.

Why didn't she just patronize the actual designer?!

In my opinion, she got her money's worth! Patronise the designer but no 'my tailor can churn something better and she collects just N5k' is your watchword. If the tailor says I don't understand the design, you call her 'dull tailor'. 

As my friend said 'the difference between a doughnut and puff puff is a college degree'. Fashion Design is an ART not just a skill! Respect the art! Respect the designer! Pay what is due to the right person! 

Thanks a lot @jullietmorgan for sending me this! I had a good laugh!

How often do you implement what you have learnt as a businessowner?

Guilty as charged! I have probably implemented about 10% or 20%. Afterall there are only 24 hours in a day! Where is the time to implement all these strategies we keep learning or even find the right people to help implement them?! 

I have a suggestion! How about companies who do the teaching somehow train a crop of people to help the businessowners implement?! It can only result in a win-win situation. Else next year, we will be back with the same old story. 

Trainers (me inclusive), think about it! Could be yet another income stream for you! #foodforthought 

Meanwhile so sorry I went awol! Been swamped! Swamped!! Swamped!!! Been also affected by many delays due to circumstances beyond my control so we've had to move certain Course dates forward. 

Will share the new start dates shortly!
