Bread and butter

The fashion industry has been our bread and butter for the past 20+ years! We believe strongly that it is best to get advice from experts in the industry that are familiar with the processes of manufacturing rather than just giving factual advice. Good Ideas are not going to get you to the finishing line, proper planning and hands-on advice will help you deliver the best outcome and save you money and ... ehm... well, frankly embarrassment. The lingo manufacturers use and the requests they will make will be foreign to most people. There are many things that are expected of designers before they approach garment manufacturers so get in the know! We need you to make your mark with your design and will guide you as much as you want us too.

To know what you know and what you do not know, that is true knowledge.

Founder of Fashion productio academy

We have all been there, you tried 'cause you thought you knew and failed. I think at best, we are all stumbling forward in life and as entrepreneurs! I certainly have! 

My name is Nailya and I have been in the fashion industry for over 25 Years as a garment manufacturing studio owner and Fashion entrepreneur. Me And My Team Have Hand Crafted Beautiful Pieces For Most Of The Top UK Luxury Brands. I have seen the pitfalls and made many mistakes along the journey but all of this has helped me to perfect the process and navigate the manufacturing of clothing. I am looking forward to seeing you thrive!

What Others Say


Hey Nailya, just wanted to thank you so much for inviting me to that webinar! So so helpful, I've pr ordered the toolkit as I had thought I was ready to approach manufacturers with my little tech pack and I now realise just how much work I've got to do!!

Thanks again and I'll look forward to the next one.  



Nearly talked myself out of joining as my youngest was playing up but so glad I made it. Brilliant course, starting to understand why manufacturers have been a little off with me :-)



I think your masterclass was insane! I learnt so much in one hour! So many takeaways!!! Thank you so much!

I can't wait for the next one. Can I work 1-2-1 with you?

Get Organised

Really organised people are not born organised, they have to cultivate healthy habits, which then help them to stay organised. It is easy to lose focus and get discouraged when you are a creative.

Even the most inspiring designers with the most wonderful ideas will have to buckle down and get things written down. Finding a path through all the things you need to think of and that desperately need doing will take some skills. We recommend writing things down and connecting with others in the industry that help you cement the right knowledge from the start of your journey.

Learn New Skills

There’s never been a better opportunity to try your hand at something new, especially when you have help all the way through. We provide templates that can be used with manufacturers.

Learning how to use them and allowing them to guide you is an amazingly satisfying experience! It kind of feels like you bypassed all the hassle and got there before anyone else ;-) let us help you acquire those skills
