A few months after I took the course, I started working on my business plan, branding, etc. Within a year, I had launched my brand Raffia Atelier, which is almost 5 years old now.
We have been stocked in 4 countries and we have customers all over the world.
In 2016, I was featured in Teen Vogue as one of 12 Ghanaian designers to know. Raffia has evolved and continues to make strides in the fashion world and it all started with the FAB workshop. If you have an interest in Fashion, particularly in the context of Africa,
I wholeheartedly recommend the FAB workshops. Jacqueline and her partners are very knowledgeable and networked and will give you the clarity and the information you need to take the next step.
The FAB course is a great introductory to anyone looking to get involved in sourcing consumer goods on the African continent.
The guest speakers provided formidable insight into specific sectors and unveiled cultural nuances from West to Eastern Africa business practices.
At the time of taking the ourse, I was beginning feasibility studies in Ghana and trying to understand this point in the garment supply chain.
Since then, I've created WOVEN- Fashion and Retail consultancy based in Ghana. One of the services we provide is sourcing and the course taught me what to expect when stepping into that industry. Most speakers were willing to share contact info for offline conversations and shared ground realities.
I'd recommend this course to anyone that is aspiring or ready to take a deep dive into sourcing from the African continent.
When I started to read more and went onto Jacqueline's website, I realised that all the gaps of knowledge I had in fashion, the little fashion experience I had, that this was the woman to answer and fill in the knowledge gaps and this is what pushed me
Finally the stuff in my head from years and years is finally coming out – coming out into designs on paper. Before not having a way to execute them or a way to go forward was like having hope and not having a way to do anything with it
BUT NOW I am on the course I can see a tangible product – I can literally feel it!
Positives are that you gain a lot of confidence you also begin to realise that it is not such a difficult journey, but it’s a journey that starts with you, you've got to take the steps to do it. And any designers even a big store, has to do those steps"
