1.I started with a sewing machine and a pressing iron.
My bedroom was my office.In the morning,I take up my bed,arrange the office properly like it should be,that's where my clients come to meet me and at night,I put my bed back and sleep peacefully.
Don't let your need for a shop stop you from starting,start from your home.
2.Customers are the reasons you're existing,always be polite with them.
3.Before you start a fashion business,attend a fashion school and learn the basics of fashion.
4.Be very creative so you can come up with your own designs.
Don't build your career on someone else's designs.
Let your style define you!
5.If you want to go into female wears,learn Pattern Drafting.
If you're into men's wears,Take courses on Sketches.
6.When you grow to a point where lots of people starts celebrating you,don't get overwhelmed with exhortation, else in few months you see yourself falling.
