Fulfilling your fashion dreams and starting your own apparel collection is exciting...and a little scary too, to say the least! Nonetheless, having a clothing sample of your design made up for the first time is always a one-of-a-kind experience. Needless to say, the first time you see your clothing in a retail shop will make you feel truly special, and the first time you see a pedestrian walking around in an outfit YOU designed,  your mind will be blown! You're probably picturing it as you're reading this.

"WHERE do I start?"

"WHAT steps do I take?"

"HOW MUCH will it cost?"

"WHO will make my clothing?"
...luckily, you don't have to jump in without proper guidance and knowledge. This 6-month course covers everything from concept sketch to finished collection (including design, construction, manufacturing, branding and marketing, etc). Once the course is complete, you won't leave with only a piece of paper crediting your attendance; you'll leave with an entire collection of clothing made by YOU, ready to show at Fashion Week and sell!

LAUNCH YOUR CLOTHING LINE!
