Why You Need Our 
Beginners Course in Fashion Design

-  If you LOVE Fashion and want to turn your love for Fashion into a viable business, this Course is for you!

-  This Course is perfect for you if you have always wanted to wanted to learn how to sew from scratch both as a skill and, more importantly, as a business opportunity!

Most people assume learning how to sew is all they need to start and run a Fashion Business.  Having spent years relating with fashion designers, we know better!  Learning the skill alone does not make the business!  Many who learn only the skill end up becoming frustrated due to the lack of business knowledge to help them make enough money from the skill.

This is why we created the Beginners Course in Fashion Design.  This all-encompassing Fashion Design Course is targeted at fashion lovers with no prior knowledge of sewing and teaches the 3 most important aspects of starting and running a Fashion Business:

  • Creative & Fashion Illustration Courses;
  • Sewing & Patternmaking Classes; and 
  • Fashion Entrepreneurship Courses.

Rona came to Lagos came all the way from Portharcourt to pursue her dream.  

This is her story...

'When I caught the vision, (it’s more of spiritual than physical. Lol), I was a size 4-6 I think, I had problems getting my clothes from stores. They would always direct me to the kids section. It was so annoying and exhausting.

I can recall I also didn’t like buying basic pieces. I was extra extra & most stores never seemed to have what I’d like. Even if they did, it was always too big. Then I thought, if I could make what I wanted in my size, why not?

So I found myself here & as time went by, the attention shifted from just me to others & I discovered I would love to cater for people that have the same type of issues I had sizewise & clothes that can help them express who they really are."

This can be your story!
