Guys, I have some big news. Very, very soon I will be launching my first e-course….Starting Your Own Fashion Business: AN ONLINE E-COURSE FOR ASPIRING FASHION BOSSES.
I’m really excited about bringing this course to you. Because really, I’ve been writing it in my head for over 8 years… Since I started my first job teaching fashion design at F.I.T. in New York, I felt that understanding the basics of how the fashion industry works should be something that EVERYONE has access to. So that before YOU go through the time and $$$ in applying to fashion school, or getting your first fashion job, you can know if it’s right for you.
It was also important for me to create something accessible to everybody. You see, I grew up in the suburbs of Michigan, and although it was very white-picket-fence-pretty-place to grow up in, there was never any direct access to fashion. Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar magazines were my best friends, and since I lived as a teen in T.T.B.T.I. (The Time Before the Internets!), the only thing to watch was a show called “House of Style” with supermodel Cindy Crawford, and occasionally on weekends, Fashion TV. I was literally dying for some fashion stimulation. And although nowadays most kids can connect to anywhere in the world with their computer or phone, there is so much choice, that it’s beyond confusing to know where to go! And if you aren’t close to a big city like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc., you can forget about having direct contact with someone who has worked in the actual fashion industry and knows what its all about.
Perhaps you’re located in a suburb of Boston, Seattle, or even Texas. Many of you know the frustration of trying to find a local fabric store, or somewhere to take sewing lessons. Forget about trying to find information on how to launch your indie dress collection, and where to do small-batch production- it’s next to impossible to find someone that can help you understand how to do that.
I’m hoping to remedy all that and more with the launch of this comprehensive course to get you started to your path to a fashion career. More details to come soon- so please stay tuned!
