Learn the Business Side of Fashion


‘’There are two ways to extend a business. Take inventory of what you're good at and extend out from your skills.

Or determine what your customers need and work backward, even if it requires learning new skills.’’

- Jeff Bezos

Practising fashion designers learn very quickly that there is a huge difference between knowing how to sew and running a fashion business.  As a fashion entrepreneur, you should make a profit from your business. This is impossible if you are unable to structure your business properly, price your products correctly and track your business finances.

Without this knowledge, you run the risk of ending your business even before it begins. In fact, if you already run the business, its sustainability depends on this key element: an understanding of how to run a fashion business.

This Course focuses on the 3 most important aspects of running a fashion business: the creative, the practical and the business sides of fashion.

Why this Fashion Design Course is for you?

This course is for you if:

  • You learnt how to sew but you lack the confidence to sew for others for fear of making mistakes.
  • You are a fashion designer looking to improve your skills and achieve better finishing with your outfits.
  • Your fashion business is not doing as well as you had expected.
  • You work so hard as a fashion designer, but have nothing to show for it financially at the end of the month and can barely even pay yourself.
  • You want to learn how to start a clothing line.
  • You started a clothing line but have difficulties with managing your production team, explaining your designs to your tailors or structuring your processes.
  • You are unable to understand, interpret or apply the patterns in your fashion books.
  • You imagine beautiful designs, but you are unable to translate them into patterns.
  • You are tired of copying designs from fashion magazines and you want to come up with original ideas
  • You want to design outfits that look straight out of the runway.
  • You lack confidence in your work as a fashion designer.
  • You find it difficult to come up with creative and original designs.
  • You learnt freehand, but you want to achieve better accuracy and design outfits that fit perfectly.
  • You are unable to properly cost your work and you always run at a loss.
  • You know you are good, but your sewing and finishing can be better.
  • You wish you can stop sewing for people and finally start that ready to wear line.
  • You have amazing designs in your head but have no clue how sketch them out to put them down on paper.

‘’I learnt (fashion design) before, but my work wasn't perfect. There was something missing. I wasn't proud of my finished work, so I figured I had to learn more. I discussed my situation with a friend who learnt where I did and she said she had also felt the same way and had come to Martwayne. When I saw her work, I didn't need much persuasion.’’ -Patience, Martwayne Alumni

About the Founder

Tope Williams-Adewunmi, FOunder Martwayne | Fashion School

My name is Tope Williams Adewunmi and I am a fashion entrepreneur.  I run Martwayne and what we do at Martwayne is give people 'Power Through Fashion' by helping them turn their love for fashion into a viable business.  

We have trained many people at Martwayne from different works of life.  As an ex-accountant myself who resigned to go to fashion school, I understand first hand how difficult it must be to leave a comfort zone to pursue the unknown.  We have been privileged to work with bankers, lawyers, accountants, fashion designers, engineers, doctors, nurses, teachers, students and so many people - all brought together by their love for fashion.  Many have gone on to establish their own businesses while some students have partnered with each other to set up clothing lines.
