Yes we had A BLAST at Fashion Talk on Saturday!!! Wow-wee!!! Honestly I could not have asked for a better turn out and event. The speakers were on point! We started on time! And we finished just as planned! In fact it was SUCH a good day people refused to take a lunch break! And I would say from the testimonials it was worth it!
So why did we decide to organise “Fashion Talk”?
Well… to be honest it was the first speaker, David Wej, who initiated it. We were having a chat a while back and he suggested coming to speak to Martwayne students about starting a ready to wear line. And naturally I jumped at the idea!
Not long after that, I started getting enquiries from people who were tired of the “made-to-measure” business model they were currently running and wanted to veer into ready to wear. So we decided to throw it open to others rather than just Martwayne students. And we got a whole lot of registrations.
And of course, it posed the opportunity to invite even more speakers and we had 3 speakers in total + me making 4 (though to be honest I did not do much speaking at all).
And in true Martwayne style, we started at 1 pm PROMPT like the sms stated (ok… I got on the stage like 1.05pm) but the 1st speaker started at 1.15 sharp as planned and he is a stickler for time.
This was taken around 1.15 pm and I really am thankful enough people came early. I’m sure they were as well! 😀
Meet the Speakers:
Here they are in the order in which they spoke.

He spoke about “Understanding Your Business Model”

Mrs Sola Babatunde who definitely knows her stuff. A seasoned trainer who also runs a proper clothing production line as it should be run with the stages properly broken down into steps!

Of course I already have a short YouTube clip on the event but let me make those who did not attend GREEN with envy with a few pictures of the testimonials!
