Meet Kofoworola, a Unilag Undergraduate who spent her holiday with us on the Creative & Fashion Illustration Course while she was waiting for her admission.
'I've been interested in fashion for a long time..
I lowkey didn't know this and even kind of forgot..until I saw an old sketchbook and I remember I used to draw characters in movies and specifically their outfits. I had a whole book dedicated to the pretty little liars characters when the show started about 10 yrs ago..Very interestingly amateur sketches.
I didn't get on the road to achieving this until after secondary school, I didn't get admission like I expected, and my mom thought it was a good idea to learn a trade and fashion was what we went for.
I also came across other fashion schools and everyone had a program but most were expensive and you had to pay a lot of money at once.. I
came across an illustration flyer for Martwayne class, most probably through the explore part of IG and Tope does know how to advertise lol.
I paid for the course immediately after scrolling through all the posts on her Instagram. I figured why wait..
The course was the very basic of it all..
They were going to teach design, colors and how they work and most of all ,how to put down your ideas in colors..both manually and digitally..
The course ran for 2 months and it was really in depth.'
This can be your story!
Join us at Martwayne and let us help you
Turn your Love for Fashion into a Viable Business!
You have a passion for fashion! You have always wanted to become a fashion designer. In fact you have even gone the extra mile to learn how to sew BUT deep down something is missing! You can only sew! You cannot come up with your own designs! So before you can deliver, you have to look through Asoebi Bella or fashion magazines.
I have had several conversations with people in the past about creativity and how to draw but I could really identify with 2 different designers who were a bit unsure of themselves.
The first lady had submitted some sketches for a competition and was totally gutted when she did not make the cut-off list and she contacted me. When I asked her to show me the sketches she submitted, she sent me the following images - [please note that I have her permission to post these pictures]:
One look and I knew instantly why she did not make the list.
Not long after that, I spoke with another lady who had just resigned her job but was worried. She was not sure if she could really cope since she knows deep down she is not creative as such.
I hear stories like this all the time which is why at Martwayne, we are all about creativity! Yes! We are teaching the creative sides of fashion!
Yes! This is my story! I was there once so I completely identify with your concerns. But guess what?! I learnt every single thing that I know now FROM SCRATCH! And that is also how we plan to teach you! FROM SCRATCH!
So if you have questions like:
- I am not creative, can I start a fashion business?
- I applied to a fashion school but I was asked to submit a portfolio, what is that?!
- Why do my tailors keep spoiling my work?
- How do people come up with all these amazing designs?
Not to worry, as I said before, we will teach you all from scratch!
And who am I?! Just a quick introduction!
My name is Tope Williams-Adewunmi and I am a fashion entrepreneur. I run Martwayne and what we do at Martwayne is give you Power through Fashion by helping you turn your love for fashion into a viable business.
We run fashion courses at Martwayne targeted at the creative, the practical and the business of fashion!
So if you are on the verge of entering for competitions, applying to fashion schools, starting your fashion business and/or meeting with customers, but you are panicking, fret not! You are in the right place!
Our Short Course in Creative & Fashion Illustration with Computer-Aided Design is perfect for you if you are a complete beginner or if you can already draw but wish to enhance your skills!
Goodness! Wouldn't you love to learn how to draw like this?!
I often tell people that if customers give you a magazine to copy, then I doubt they consider you a designer at all. And that is where a lot of designers I chat to have found themselves. And this is simply because, without a portfolio, you cannot get your customers to choose from your designs. It is just that simple!
To really succeed as a fashion designer or start a clothing line, you need to learn how to sketch, how to develop portfolios, how to develop collections and how to defend them! Operating as a designer definitely earns you more respect from your customers and also get them to choose from your designs. And this Course is here to teach you just that! :-D
Don't believe me?! Ok... just check out this work from previous students who have registered on the Course. They learnt from scratch!
And here's are 2 stunning dresses from pencil sketch to final garment based on a class project on the theme "Electric" - created by a student in our Advanced Dressmaking Course
AND these stunners below were also created by 2 different students based on the same theme - 'Electric'.
Amazing how Design works right?! Same theme, different people, different concepts, different interpretations!
How do you even begin to think of designing a dress from a word as random as electric right?! But they designed it, they defended it and they completed it in time for the runway! And THAT is the beauty of Fashion Design and our Creative Course!
Trust me when I tell you the hardest part of the process is coming up with the designs. It is a lot of sheer hard work! If it was that easy people would not be waiting for others to do the hard work so they can copy it! Which is why in other countries you could get sued for stealing designs!
The Course is basically 3-in-1! Yes! It is 3 whole Courses in 1!
Concept Development in Fashion Design & Developing a Fashion Collection
Students will learn from scratch how to:
And the best part is... there are various options available whether you are a beginner or a fab illustrator who wants to learn only specific portions of the Course to enhance your skills!
You will get a Certificate of Completion when you successfully complete the Course. This includes attendance, punctuality and submission of all assignments & projects.
You are the You that makes You the You that You Are. - Unknown
Invest in Yourself!
My favourite part of the Course is listening to them defend their designs. Awesome stuff!
We guarantee it!
Here's another testimonial from Doris, a complete beginner who is already earning an income from her knowledge at Martwayne!
Whatever your story is, we will help you
Be the Fashion Designer You Were Destined to Be!
And you know what the best part is?!
You can choose to do all 3 parts (which is of course what I would advise) OR decide which of the parts you want to learn based on your level of experience, your finances or your time.
So say, for example, you already know how to sketch beautifully but all you want to learn is how to use CAD to add that extra oomph to your designs, you can just register for Part 3! Yes! It is really that simple!
Why pay to learn what you already know right?!
How the Course Runs
There are 2 options available in the Course. You can choose the Weekday Option or the Weekend Option.
So yes! If you have a full-time job, you can register for the weekend option which happens on Saturdays only from 10am - 5pm.
Weekday students with a more flexible schedule can attend classes on Tuesdays only from 10am to 5pm.
The Classes run at set intervals and they fill up quickly!
Classes hold at 8 Sholeye Crescent, off Ayinde Giwa Street, off Alhaji Masha Road, (just before Masha Roundabout), Surulere, Lagos. You are welcome to visit before you apply.
THE FULL COURSE COSTS ONLY N90,000! Great value right?
The fees include your training materials but you will need to provide your digital tablet or a smartphone if you are running the CAD option.
The other options are:
Option 2 (Concept Development only): i.e. Part 1 only - N35,000
Option 3 (Fashion Illustration + CAD): i.e. Parts 2 & 3 only - N75,000
Option 4: (Manual Illustration OR Digital Illustration only):
i.e. Part 2 OR Part 3 only - N60,000
Option 5: (Design + Fashion Illustration OR CAD)
1.e. Part 1 + Part 2 OR Part 3 only - N70,000
Let's just say you never really know what you are capable of until you are pushed! None of our students only knew they had it in them when they were done with the Course.
I recall a previous class where a student whose project I initially rejected, repeated it and came up with an AWESOME collection based on medical injections - just in time for an exhibition in Italy! I was blown away!
In another class, we actually discovered that a student got her target market wrong based on her designs. She thought her target market was aged 24 - 35 whilst her designs showed she should have been targeting a market for sophisticated women aged 40 and above. Without this exercise, she would have been frustrated and would have made made ZERO sales because she would have been marketing her work to the wrong people. It was a real eye opener.
PLUS! You are actually on your way to establishing yourself as a fashion illustrator who designers can patronize! Easy! A previous student just resigned her job to focus on fashion illustration as a career and I have already referred people to her! So really, you will make your money back easy!
So the Course goes beyond just you learning how to draw! It helps you know who you really are as a fashion designer and if you love fashion sketching, then you can easily establish yourself as one! PLUS you also learn the value of learning from constructive criticism. Trust me the Course is the ISH!
And you would expect it to cost an arm, a leg and 5 ribs right?! WRONG! Even though the value of the Course should be about N250,000 (and yes you do have 3 courses all rolled up in 1), we would not do that to you! It costs only N90,000!

That's what you think. If you can dress yourself up every morning, then you are more creative than you give yourself credit for. If you can imagine the style, then you can create it! You just have to know how!
Of course! Just like Kofo, many of our students use their knowledge and outsource their illustration services to earn income.
Sure you will. If you can draw circles and straight lines, then you can definitely learn how to draw! I learnt it from scratch. You just need to understand the principles.
