I am a South African trained Fashion Designer well versed in various areas of Fashion Industry and its relationship with the business community.

Rona shares her Martwayne Experience. 

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

This is her story:

'When I caught the vision, I had problems getting my clothes from stores. They would always direct me to the kids section. It was so annoying and exhausting.  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 size-wise & clothes that can help them express who they really are."

Lekan also shares his Martwayne story.

He was a complete beginner and is already earning an income from the knowledge gained at Martwayne.
