UPDATE ON WC TRAINING SCHOOL!!!

Hallos, Everyone!!!

ITS WC again!!!..

Happy New Month!!! May God heal our country Nigeria, and crown all our efforts with success in these new month, amen!!

This post is about the first WC training section we had (1st of February – April 30th 2014), and about the new sessions to start.

First of all about the first official WC training, I had the most amazing first set of students, God indeed led them to me. We started out with five students: Sekinah, Mrs Opara, Kike, Juliet and Nike. Towards the end of the first month Nike had to leave to pursue other interest, a new student the ever determined Yemi joined us, and the forever laughing Nkiru also joined in the second month.  The first month of the training was very vigorous and thorough as laying a proper foundation was very important to the course.  We had several classes, classwork , assignments, and projects during the course. To view some of the brilliant works of my beautiful students please check out our instagram page (@wunmmiescouture). They did learn, much more than we thought possible or you can imagine within the 3 months, they applied almost all they were taught either as classwork or as assignment. Also check the end of the post to view some of their work. To conclude their training WC students will be going for internship for a month in other fashion houses, where they can apply all they have learnt efficiently. To celebrate our students @ WC , we would be having a fashion show(update of the show will posted on the blog) on June 15th where each student will show case a collection reflecting all they have learnt @ WC Training school, and a certificate will be awarded to each student.

These will also serve as a roll call to designers, business owners, investors, if you are looking for Educated, Enlightened, Capable, brilliant designers who you would love to employ or invest in, please give me a call(08160413107) , so we can reserve a seat for you at the fashion show, I can assure you , you won’t be disappointed, WC students are exceptional!

The new session for the weekdays classes will run from may 19th to August 19th 2014 (3months) and weekend classes will run from may 17th to October 19th 2014 (5 months). Registration for the weekday classes will end June 6th, while that of weekend classes will end June8th.

We would also be starting the WC manual, the manuals will include step by step cutting and sewing instructions that would be explained and practiced in class. The manuals will be released every 2 weeks; cost for the manuals will be included in the training kit, students who will not be purchasing the training kit @ WC would be charged separately for the manuals.
