Guess what…you can!

Sounds great…Right!

Wow, are you excited yet?

SO HERE’S THE THING…

Oh yes…that term again….  But read on

I know you desire to fulfil your dream …

Creating and building a fashion business in Africa seems like the answer, but there’s a problem…

You just don’t know how to make it happen.

I RECOGNISE THAT you’re a creative and entrepreneur seeking to produce in Africa. You desire to expand your African sourcing strategy and don’t know how. You feel overwhelmed with where to produce in Africa and you feel lost in finding reliable partners to work with in Africa. 

Maybe you’ve tried, but your endeavors never got past the “idea phase” because you lacked the steps and a strategy

Maybe you just couldn’t find a supplier to execute your idea and samples made were badly fitted with terrible finishes

Maybe you’re just learning about entering Africa and feel overwhelmed by all its 54 countries.

Maybe you’re simply concerned because you do not have any fashion experience, background or industry contacts

Maybe you have no idea where to start and kick of your business – which country, what product, or who to work with.

Sometimes, you wonder if it’s even possible for you!


How would it feel to…

Beat that overwhelm from not knowing what business to set up, because SPARK. advises you how to select the RIGHT country, to create the RIGHT product and to work with the RIGHT partners? ✔

Quit second guessing yourself and run your business with ease? ✔

Gain a clear roadmap blueprint on how to bring your Fashion Made in Africa vision to fruition?✔

Have a unique strategy to set up your African fashion business with ease, support and accountability and create a positive impact in the world through your business? ✔

Save yourself money from working with the wrong, dishonest and unprofessional suppliers – who make bad quality badly fitting samples because I will show you how to find the best on the continent for your product who have experience, have been vetted and will give you a quality service? ✔

Beat the confusion you have with the fashion supply chain and Its terminology by tapping into my 20 years industry experience provided to build this training? ✔

Have a network of other likeminded creative entrepreneurs to keep you motivated and encouraged along your business development thus reducing the isolation of working alone? ✔

Have your dream business up and running to stop wishing and learn just how to grow and develop it in as little as THREE months! ✔


ALL THIS IS 100% POSSIBLE FOR YOU. My students are doing it, and you can do it too.

HOW?

Starting a fashion biz in Africa doesn’t have to be a Constant Struggle …

BECAUSE WHEN YOU CREATE AND BUILD A FASHION BUSINESS IN AFRICA YOU ACCOMPLISH THREE THINGS:

1) YOU CREATE IMPACT ON THE GROUND;

2) YOU CREATE A LEGACY BUSINESS;

3) YOU CREATE MONEY!

Fashion is profitable AND it has the ability to change lives.

SPARK takes all the guesswork out of creating and building your fashion made in Africa business, and leads you to do this in just 8 weeks! The Fashion Africa Business training is the ONLY training program that equips creative entrepreneurs and aspiring designers to start and build a fashion business in Africa.

NO MORE SECOND GUESSING YOURSELF. NO MORE CONFUSION AND OVERWHELM. NO MORE GETTING RIPPED OFF BY SHODDY SUPPLIERS NO MORE WISHING OR WONDERING WHEN YOUR BUSINESS WILL HAPPEN. 

You CAN create THE African fashion business of your dreams… Starting Now …

In case we haven’t met yet… Hi, I’m Jacqueline …

I AM A PUBLISHED AUTHOR, AN INDUSTRY PROFESSIONAL FASHION DESIGNER WITH EXPERIENCE LIVING AND WORKING IN CHINA, TURKEY, GERMANY AND THE UK. I AM AN INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC SPEAKER, A VISITING LECTURER, AN AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT PROFESSIONAL AND A SOURCING AGENT AND I AM PROUD TO BE YOUR African Fashion Business Coach!

My unique African journey started in 2009 when I embarked on a journey I would never have imagined. I travelled to to Ghana to explore my heritage from Africa to the Caribbean and I experienced a life and culture that simply hit home.. I was literally home. I returned and began my Masters in Ethical Fashion now with a focus on Africa and I set up my own clothing label. But this ended disastrously. I got ripped off by my tailor who ran off with my patterns, trims and samples and I had the police involved. WHY? because i never implemented my learnings during my career. Since then i have developed a 6-step blueprint system that prevents such happening again and my clients use it today to export as much as 4000 pieces from Africa to their home country. This system is now open for you to use, to rinse and repeat so you can SOURCE, SAMPLE and SELL with ease!  
You are in the right place if you are a Designer, Brand or Creative Entrepreneur with a heart to IMPACT Africa and wish to build a sustainable fashion made in Africa business, but struggling with the HOW, the WHERE, the WHAT, your WHY and WHO with.

This is why I created…SPARK.

So what is

The SPARK. course with the Fashion Africa Business training is exactly what you need. BUT don’t just take my word for it – hear what past and present students have to say about it and why they feel YOU should join.

WHY?

BECAUSE You’re in the right place

SPARK. WITH F.A.B TRAINING HAS SUPPORTED ENTREPRENEURS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD – FROM AUSTRALIA, TO CANADA, TO JAPAN, TO DENMARK TO ARUBA – THEY ALL FELT STUCK … UNTIL THEY MET ME.

I am here to do serious business in changing the narrative of Africa’s fashion industry and part of that is by equipping creative entrepreneurs to create and build sustainable fashion businesses in Africa. And I do this inside of SPARK.

“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.”

Sonachi is a student of F.A.B training. These are her words about it.

What makes SPARK. different?

There are no other courses out there right now that help creative entrepreneurs start and build a fashion busness in Africa. Here’s why:

  • SPARK. GIVES YOU THE “HOW TO” CREATE A SUSTAINABLE FASHION BUSINESS MADE IN AFRICA. By utilising my unique A.F.R.I.C.A. Roadmap you will be directed and lead along a structured system that helps you to navigate the often complex sourcing landscape of Africa’s fashion and textile industry. SPARK. brings together my 20 year industry experience into one easy to use online course that equips you with a tried and tested blueprint that you can rinse and repeat for your business fashion season after fashion season.
  • SPARK. PROVIDES YOU WITH UNIQUE ACTIONABLE CONTENT. You will receive over 6 modules broken down into bite sized video tech tutorials. The content is up to date an contemporary and is all-inclusive on what you need to practically set up a fashion business in a unique location such as Africa.

  • 21/90 RULE SUCCESS. Have you heard of the 21/90 Rule? Theory says it takes 21 days to develop a habit then 90 days for it to become a lifestyle. SPARK. literally is the spark that creates a consistent habit and a new lifestyle for your business. It is NOT easy to start a business BUT results show that with commitment over a 90 day timeframe your life could be completely different. This is why I have designed SPARK. to be completed in just 90 days. The students who have followed this process do get radical results fast. SPARK. with the F.A.B. training will expedite your success.
  • SPARK. IS TRIED AND TRUE. SPARK. via the F.A.B. training has seen students from all over the world go through the training. They are having successes from implementing the methods, the tools, the templates and the advice into their own businesses and are now producing 1000s of pieces of clothing in Africa, they are being stocked in multipe stores internationally and they are even moving to Africa and exporting back to their home countries. The content provided is the only one of it kind and most effective online course for the industry on the market.
  • STUDENT COMMUNITY To support your business growth you will be invited to join the private facebook group where present and past F.A.B. students are part of the community and support, share and encourage one another.
  • I AM INVESTED IN YOU. One thing I always say is that your success is my success. I am invested to you succeeding because my guiding drive is to encourage trade with Africa to change perceptions and to build up the fashion opportunities on the continent andbe part of the changing narrative in Africa. 
  • MY STUDENTS GET AMAZING RESULTS. Just look below… 

Sonachi is a student of F.A.B. These are her words about the training.  

“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.”
