    Michelle was a dream come true! She was thorough and really knows her stuff when it comes to starting a fashion line. She gets real with you on what it takes to actually venture into running a successful business, from writing a business plan to funding and other fundamentals. I'm local in NYC and she provided many resources, as well as resources specific to the brand I am looking to start. I would recommend this class to anyone who is starting to venture into starting their own line and needs some guidance.

    Anonymous review on 11/12/2018
    I believe that this class is for someone who knows nothing about business 101. I do not think this should be a pre-requisite to any other classes especially if your already business savvy. I was kinda disappointed to see that it wasnt more organized and so simple. I was disappointed that it seemed like a principals was bunched together in a small amount of time for $225. Theories explained seemed more so off the top of head not concisely put. Fashion is anal. And i came expecting that. Although if you come with a ton of questions she will answer but again, its not alot of time. My suggestions for all newbies go to a free business workshop first. Learn everything you can about a business plans, financing, marketing fashion specifically. Have questions, ideas, samples and financing ready. If not your better off paying the consulting fee when you’re ready to launch and asking all questions then. The manufacturing process is also intense and i do suggest taking that class especially when you dont know anything at all. But again I give it three stars because it could have been so much more to it had the claas been more time to go over everything. I actually am taking another one. Even if we didnt have alot of time, a more written detailed reference would suffice especially for those who dont have the experience.

    Michelle was amazing, a real fashion industry professional. I learned so much from this course, highly recommend it if you are looking to learn about the fashion industry. 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 the next class back-to-back and the transition was excellent. Come prepared with questions and an open mind.

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?

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!

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?

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.
