A must read for fashion designers and fashion euthuasiats!! nuggets from fashions finest africa 2018.
good morning dear,
we @couturebyisemini attended the fashions finest africa (ffa) conference and epic show held recently in lagos, nigeria. we had international and nigerian speakers talk to participants on the business and sustainability of fashion. it was a time of enlightenment.
in the spirit of giving and sharing, we are sharing our note with you. how selfless😆😆 relax and learn.😇 nuggets 💃consumers want quality clothing and accessories that finishes well for lower prices and flexibility. 💃the way forward is to embrace innovative methods and periodically think like a retailer. 💃jersey materials should be kept for about 24hours after cutting before sewing. 💃the 1st inch of tape measures is usually longer than other inches. so care must be taken when taking measurement. 💃freehand cutting is not suitable for factory production. 💃garmenting as an aspect of fashion has many branches (designer, machinist, illustrator, pattern cutter, merchandising) there is need to specialize. 💃as a budding fashion designer, if you want to intern come with value. nobody cares about you but you so you must practice inquisitive learning. you have to learn to be better than your mentors. 💃fashion is business. are you a business man/woman? do you know or have what it takes to run a business? 💃you have to build the right work ethic. it's very important. in mentorship and collaboration be humble. 💃when you are giving your best, you become proud of what you do. 💃learn. research. you don't have a business running a business you know nothing about!
💃there is excess supply of money, what we have is less viable business to invest in. - mr. washed olagunju, executive director, bank of industry, nigeria.
