The Difference Between a Fashion Designer & a Tailor…

SO I’ve been meaning to write on this topic for a while now…. and I finally decided to do so today after having yet another chat with a top don in the Fashion Industry who felt the same way I did about the craziness that goes on around here.  

 

The first time I was asked this question was on some TV interview last year and of course I answered the question without batting an eyelid.  ?  But since then, I have asked both new and practising designers the difference between the two terms and it turned out that  whilst everyone, more often than not, knew who a designer was, none of them actually got the definition of a tailor.

Debunking the Various Myths About Fashion Design & the Industry

Yes!  Another post of mine that is long overdue.  I just felt it was high time someone addressed the various fallacies people have about fashion, fashion designers and the industry as a whole because anytime I have a conversation with an aspiring designer or even the general public, I am amazed at how clueless many of them are about what fashion is really about. 

My Feature Article on enterprise54.com 😀

Yaye!!!!!!!  ? ? ?


And it all happened because I responded to a post on a Facebook group I belong to.  Really happy I responded to Aunty Bisi who called me out on the BR Group to tell my story… which I did!  


Thank you so very much Lara Sanni for this wonderful piece!  You just gave me an early birthday present!  And thanking the whole of enterprise54.com for this amazing feature!


MWAH! MWAH!! MWAH!!!

How Do I Start My Fashion Business?

Ok!  So here is my BN post!  I have actually had this question thrown at me so many times, I knew writing about it was only a matter of time.  Seeing I managed not to lift a finger over the holiday, here is the article which was actually posted on Bella Naija on Thursday.  I made minimal changes to it since I realised it was edited and some portions of my thought process (re: punctuations and brackets) were lost in the editing AND I also added more pictures… 

Money Matters - Commission vs Salary... Which is the Better Option for Your Tailors?!

Great!  So what am I chatting about today???


MONEY MATTERS!!!!!  The major problem EVERYONE has!!!  But I’ll limit what I have to say to the major question most designers who run production units ask at every event, every seminar and pretty much at every opportunity:


“Should I pay my workers per piece or should I put them on a salary?”


THAT people is the million-dollar question and here is my take on it.
