“I would say our people here are learning fashion to survive and not to become global fashion icons. They want to make money, they want to feed their family. It is not bad and I don’t blame them.

From my side, I would say my tertiary education actual influence my decisions and gave me a different mindset about working in the fashion business. I want people I train to see practical sewing skills as a hobby, so they can enjoy every aspect of it

There are mature and working mothers/women who are willing and ready to sacrifice their time and resources during weekends to learn this skill.

I want people I train to see practical sewing skills as a hobby so they can enjoy every aspect of it.” — Ms Fatima Sumani
