Fashion Intensive Masterclass (with basic GPC membership for 1 year)


After years of attending and being a featured speaker at trade shows, fashion weeks, and schools, I have noticed how little real-life information there is available for emerging designers and how deceptive the industry can be. I have attended hundreds of workshops and seminars from industry “experts” that talk about something they did twenty years ago or are just starting up themselves, with little substance.
Most are just hour-long pitches trying to sell you something.
I stand out from the masses for my reputation in the industry for calling it like it is. I personally own two fashion brands and retail stores.
I'm not just talk, I don’t just teach: I DO.
This master class has been called a master’s degree in the business of fashion. It covers all of the bases, from concept to sales.
It starts at 10 AM, one hour break for lunch, and concludes at 5 PM. 
 Please be advised only 10 spots are available - so be sure to reserve your place ASAP.
