The amount of information I got with this class was amazing. I truly feel that I have new tools in which to start this new endeavor. The teacher truly wants her students to succeed and she gives so much of her vast knowledge freely. Ask questions, she is amazing at helping you navigate through your issues. I will be taking her other classes as soon as I can.

Michelle was amazing, a real fashion industry professional. I learned so much from this course, I highly recommend it if you are looking to learn about the fashion industry, how to source and create a clothing line. As an artist, I had no concept of what is needed to create clothes - and now I have the resources and know-how! There were also some folks in the class that were ready to launch a line and they seemed to enjoy the class as well. I also took this and the How To Start Your Fashion Company Clothing+Accessories class back-to-back and the transition was excellent. Come prepared with questions and an open mind.
