Question from Anonymous
Hi. I’m interested in starting an online clothing store (at least at first). I have no experience in the fashion industry or in sewing/design. I am looking for a strong foundational starting point, but I’m just not sure which of your classes to take since some of the descriptions seem so similar. Could you recommend the best seminar to start with based on my current goals?
Answer from Michelle A. Verified Educator
Hi! If you are wanting to start a line and have no experience the How to Start Your Fashion Company: Design Your Line Is the best workshop to take.

Hi, I'm Ayaka from Japan. I'm planning to visit NYC to take this class. I would like to ask about one concern. Do you have textbook or materials of this class? Actually English is my second language, so I'm afraid that I can't understand some parts because of language skill. But if you have materials, it will be helpful to understand important things as much as possible.
Answer from Laura W. Verified Student
The class was mostly conversational. There were some good handouts but no textbook. I flew from Minnesota to NYC for the class and feel it was well worth it!

Question from Ish
Hi, do you think this class would be interesting for someone who does not have a specific venture in mind.. Or is it more meant for those that have an idea in fashion that they're considering and want to understand the tactical side of starting their business?
Answer from Jenn C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi! This class would still be relevant even to someone who doesn't have a specific venture in mind. In fact, you might find it helpful in making that decision, as the class covers Marketing and Brand Identity, Developing, Producing, Sourcing, alongside the Business Aspects of the trade.
