The Business of Fashion Workshops
The Trinidad and Tobago Fashion Company (FashionTT) designed a series of workshops to educate local designers on the importance of strategically managing their businesses to achieve desired results and revenue. This heightened understanding of business processes and their effects on revenue and export ability will result in the continued growth of the fashion industry which will in turn contribute significantly to Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
These training workshops demonstrated how strategic business management is linked to wealth generation, allowing designers to gain a greater understanding of business processes and how it affects wealth generation and export ability.
