Máire's experience in all sides of fashion means she understands where costs go up and also, more importantly, where costs can be saved.
Her objective eye was exactly what my business needed to grow and gain the margins that I needed to sustain and grow the business.
Máire was a breeze to work to with, she understood what I’m trying to do and where my brand is headed.
I look forward to working with her again in the future. I have since recommended her to others looking for help with their fashion business.
I absolutely loved the masterclass. The amount of information presented, the insight to the way things work in UAE, guest speaker appearance and overall inspiration that it gave. Was totally helpful for me in understanding my niche and which path to follow. Lot’s of work ahead but feel very inspired and unstoppable. I loved the way information was presented and how sincere it was. Don't think it’s common in this business. Huge thanks to Máire for her knowledge and experience that she shared.
The masterclass is the golden ticket to success in fashion business. Recommended to every fashion designer who need guidance and support from an amazing mentor. So much knowledge and experience and Maire shared all of the ups and downs of the industry with us. I loved every second of this class.
