Once upon a time, each of our consultants was in the same position that you find yourself today:
hoping for a future in design, and wondering how he or she would ever make it there.
We have built a network of professionals for our students / clients specifically to help with portfolio preparation. This includes fashion illustration, draping and garment construction.
We also have tutors to assist with ACT and SAT exam preparation. Allow our consultants to prepare you for a future in the design industry.
… and where you’re hoping to be once you’ve earned a degree and have entered the fashion industry.
