Learner Testimonials

I was looking for a course that would give me some theory behind the concept of fashion and fashion forecasting, and I found it in this course. Great information given on eg. Zara and how they operate. From this, I will be encouraged to go ahead and do the Personal Shopping course.

I loved this two-day course. Laura was fantastic. Her knowledge of the industry is remarkable. She is lovely and down-to-earth, which leads to a comfortable learning environment. We had a laugh while getting the work done.
