What Our Students Are Saying…

  • “ I have really enjoyed the fashion mentoring program- I've learnt so much and it has answered many questions of mine about starting my own fashion line that not many people are willing to answer or share. I found all the marketing tutorials very helpful! I also found things like order forms fantastic. Those are the tools that most of us don't learn at university. How to set all of that up. It's been an amazing year. My label will be off this summer. I'm wholesaling next month and I am very excited. I'm just currently redesigning my website through prestashop which is lots of fun. So I'm very grateful for the whole experience I will send you pics as soon as I have some!”

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the program, and only wished I had known all this 18months ago. Some of the lessons I’ve learnt myself through trial and error. There was plenty of tips and tricks that I can use to move my business forward. (I  launched my online store 6 weeks ago!)You had some great tips on cheap marketing which is what I need right now. The YouTube video idea, the Press Release idea, The vertical photo on FB page, the stocking in boutiques as well as direct to customer. I have action all these ideas and would have never thought or known about it otherwise. Thank you!
