Martwayne | Power Through Fashion: The Foundation Course in Fashion Design

The Foundation Course in Fashion Design


The Martwayne Foundation Course in Fashion Design (MFC) is targeted at aspiring and practising designers / entrepreneurs.  It teaches the creative, the sewing as well as the business sides of fashion for those who would like to start a fashion business.

There are 2 stages in the Course:  Beginners and Advanced.

Students pay for each stage as they go along and there are 2 registration options:  

Weekends for busy professionals and Weekdays for those with a more flexible option.

Course Fees:


Fees for each Course are typically paid at each stage but students may also choose to pay for all the stages at once.


Complete Beginners:


Complete beginners will register for both stages.

The Beginners Stage costs N250,000 and there is an additional N20,000 to cover damages and unnecessary extensions to the Course.  The Course lasts 3 months for weekday students.

The Advanced Stage costs N280,000 for students who complete the Beginners Course.  And there is also the extra N20,000 refundable caution fee.  This stage lasts 6 months for weekday students.

Practising Designers:

Students who can already sew can start from the Advanced Stage.  This will last 8 months for weekday students.  The fees for this stage are N385,000 and there is an extra N20,000 refundable caution fee which covers damages and unnecessary extensions to the Course.

Classes for the weekday option take place on Mondays to Thursdays from 10am - 4pm.

Weekend classes hold on Saturdays only from 12 noon - 6pm.

Classes do not hold on public holidays.

Please note that the Courses are run on a strict time table and all work and assignments must be submitted at the scheduled time.


Will I Learn How to Sew?:

The Course is predominantly a practical course so it teaches pattern drafting and how to sew.  However, there is another aspect of the Course which teaches the design and production process, how to develop your designs from scratch using themes and tools of the design process, the documentation required in a fashion business, how to charge for your clothes, etc.  Most of these are covered during the Course.

Because it gives a rounded view of what it takes to start a fashion business, students are taught vital principles through lectures, assignments and projects that will enable them think for themselves, make their own decisions, and learn as they move up the different Courses from their experiences.  

We pride ourselves on teaching people to become designers and business owners.  We, therefore, expect that from the end of the Beginners Course, students begin to recognize who they are as designers, utilize the knowledge gained and test the principles taught at the end of each Short Course, sew for people, learn from their practical experiences, charge appropriately for their work and most of all, learn how to deal with their clients professionally without shortchanging themselves.

At the end of the Course, students would have learnt enough about the process right from concept to completion to enable them put their knowledge to practice, even if on a small scale and build their businesses from there.
