At what point should you let go of a client’s order?

At what point should you let go of a client’s order?

We are always our greatest critics and fuss over every single bit of detail. The client doesn’t even notice but you keep insisting there is a problem. Should you bring your Miss Perfectionist game on and still fix what your client feels is not broken without their knowledge or should you just let go?

Take 10 minutes out and be grateful. Works wonders for a new week!

Hello good people!!! Before we jump into the business of the week, take a minute to be thankful for what you achieved last week. You may have many things left undone and you are probably angry at yourself, your staff and where you currently are in your business.  
BUT in all the disappointments, there surely must be a blessing or a lesson you discovered. Leverage on that blessing, focus on that lesson and use that to plan your new week. I’ll give you an example. 
I discovered we had so much work left undone last week and was really angry at the speed of production. It must be really tough to see the blessing in that with all the deadlines looming but tried to. 
Through it all, I realized that I should be grateful that we had a committed team and we still had time to make amends.
Lesson learnt, get to work early, sit with the production crew and literally plan each step of the process with proper achievable deadlines as against ranting all the time about how they should know what to do.  
I am soooo looking forward to a productive week! Wishing you all the same!

How to create your own standard size for the African woman for your Ready to Wear Clothing Line.

How to create your own standard size for the African woman for your Ready to Wear Clothing Line.

I get this question a lot. How do you create standard sizes for the African woman seeing we don’t usually fall into the typical UK size chart? . . Well here are my suggestions. I actually used one of these methods and it actually worked after some tweaking. Either method involves a lot of research as well. . . Method 1: If you already have a made to measure business, chances are you already have a lot of customers’ measurements. Reach out to your customers to ask which sizes they buy in stores. Then group similar sizes together and run an average to get the measurements for each size. . . Method 2: Get fit models, one slim person and one plus size person. In my case, I used myself as a standard because no matter how big my hips were then (emphasis on then o), I always fit into a UK 10. So seeing I was a ‘fleshy’ 10, I graded up and down and tested the larger sizes on other people who also told me they were certain sizes. Based on feedback, I kept tweaking till I was comfortable. . . Note that I said you have to do a lot of reasearch. It’s not something you can perfect in 1 day. But at the end of the day, you are the business owner. You can even decide to use Small, Medium and Large instead of numbers and state which measurements falls into which on your website. Pretty much all sites have that. . . And that’s my tip for today. How about you? How did you come up with your sizing system? . . #martwayne #powerthroughfashion #fashion #readytowear #clothing #changingminds #changingmindsets #fashiondesign #retail #instablog #pinterest #linkedin Posted via Instagram April 17, 2018 at 08:32AM
