Hello Everyone!!!

Its time for another session of WC training in garment production. To view works of our past WC trainees, check previous post on these blog. The new session for the weekday’s classes will run from March 9th to June 5th 2015 (3months) and weekend classes will run from March8th to August 8th2015 (5 months), and an extra month for both weekday and weekend classes for revision and more practice.

BREAKDOWN OF THE FEES BELOW:

Weekday classes fee: #60,000

Weekend classes fee: #70,000

Training kit: #25,000

Graduation fashion show: #5000

You are allowed to pay your fees in two installments, first installment before you start your classes, second installment before the end of the second month of training.

It is compulsory that everyone either buys the training kit from Wunmmies Couture (WC) or you can purchase from the market but must bring all your items in your training kit before you are allowed to commence class, because from experience some students don’t come with some materials, and this slows the class down. The training kit will cost #25,000, full details of the list below.

The weekday classes will be from 10am-2pm, Monday, and Wednesdays will be cutting class, while Tuesday and Thursdays will be sewing classes, and Fridays for weekly assessments.

WC TRAINEE FASHION SHOW – SEASON 2

 Happy weekend!!!

Happy Valentine people!!!  May God’s true love fill our hearts, may it reflect in our actions, thoughts and achievements.  Amen! So a valentine special for you guys, something to read, and beautiful pictures to look at, that would make your day more pleasant and interesting…

This post is about the: “WC TRAINEE FASHION SHOW (2)”. The fashion show held on the 1st of February 2015, at: 29, Ayodele Okeowo Street Soluyi Gbagada near chevron roundabout/deeper life bible church. It was a ‘Garden Theme Fashion Show’. The show officially started by 2.45pm by our lovely MC, Make-Up artist extraordinaire: Ibilola Tiwo, after which Wunmi Adebayo gave a brief introduction on WC training school, and explained the essence of the show. We had three wonderful judges: Mr Adetunji Adebiyi (C.E.O Rhobes clothing company, a fast growing fashion outfit and a multi faceted young person, from fashion to public speaking, web site: www.rhobes.com) , Miss Abimbola Are (Fresh graduate of Parsons the New School of Fashion in NY, with a great flare for fabric prints and Fashion illustration) and stylish Miss Titi Belo( Architect, Fashion Designer  running the label ‘Titi Belo’).

The first designer to show case was Miss Uche Mukolo, the name of her collection was: ‘Something For Everyone’, she was inspired by Nigerians Lifestyle, to quote her’ Nigerians love going out, I created a collection for different types of occasions’.  Her collection was definitely a reflection of her inspiration, my favorite outfits in her collection was the jumpsuit she wore: the choice of fabric, the fit, the black piping details, and the elastic bottom, it was definitely a show stopper. Another favorite piece of mine was the child models outfit; it was so cute, excellent choice of fabric, good colour blend, and excellent tailoring! I was also impressed with the evening dress she made, the cowl drape attachment at the back, because they were taught the drape technique, but she managed to pull it off. Overall it was a great collection, well-done Uche!  Below are Uche Designs:

The second designer to show case was: Miss Shayo Olabiyi, the name of her collection was:’Amal(Hope)’, she was inspired by the Classy Fashionable Modest  Woman. To quote her:’ I was inspired by the need to have dresses which are not only classy but modest. I wanted a collection of clothes that are so well made they make everyone want to wear modest clothes. I also love unique and artistic fabrics that do not necessarily have to be patterned or plain but are appealing. I love to look good and basically just translated my sense of style into the collection. There are pieces for every type of occasion.’ Shayo’s collection had a lot of likes because her designs, choice of fabric, tailoring, style and execution was flawless. What I really liked about shayo’s collection was that each outfit made a statement and reflected her aesthetic, she challenged herself used all the techniques she learned during her training, it was a versatile collection. Below are shayo’s designs:

The third designer to showcase was: Miss Mojisola Esan, the name of her collection was: Classy woman, as name signifies that was her inspiration. To quote her:’ I created a strong and confident woman’. Moji’s choice of fabrics were great, I particularly liked the purple damask she used , and the yellow n grey fabric for the jumpsuit. Moji’s designs were great and had different elements to it. Below are moji’s designs:

The fourth designer to showcase was: Miss Chineye Anih, the name of her collection was: Plainly Pretty, she was inspired by monotones. To quote her:’I was inspired by an old photo, it was in black and white had the vintage classic kind of look, so I wanted the models to look this way. But along the line, black and white looked too boring and I decided to add some life n modern feel to it by adding the colour yellow to it. Chineye really impressed me with this collection, first she used different fabrics to create her own fabric, her collection was the most cohesive and it reflected her aesthetic. My favorite outfits in her collection, were the two white dresses, the detailing on those dresses were flawless. Below are Chineye’s designs:

The fifth designer to showcase was: Miss Dolapo Animashaun, the name of her collection was: ’Turbannation’. To quote her: ’I was inspired by modesty plus bold fashion statements.’ Dolapo’s collection was a show stopper so many amazing outfits with different twist to them, her choice of fabric and attention to little details made the outfits unique. Dolapo’s strong point is her styling and love for colors and prints which reflected in her collection.  Below are dolapo’s designs:

The sixth designer to showcase was; Miss Maria Ojo, the name of her collection was:’Every Woman’. To quote her:’ My inspiration came from the daily living and activities of a woman which is woven around the homely, casual and simple movement of any woman starting from her domestic life, down to official and social life. Regardless of the season, ‘every woman’ exudes confidence, sophistication, enthusiasm, beauty and simplicity in her wear. She fits into any occasion.’ Maria’s collection reflected her personal style and aesthetic. She played with light and bold colours to define each occasion and mood. My favorite outfit in her collection was the monostrap mermaid dress; the choice of fabric was great, and the fit and detailing of the dress. Below is Maria’s collection:
