Your fashion design dream starts here. Take this class and be ready to build your career in the glitz and glamor of the apparel industry.

This 36-hour full fashion design course (12 sessions x 3 hours) is your comprehensive guide to design and illustration styles that will prepare you to become a creative fashion designer.

"I think the classes are great, even though we are online, I'm still learning a lot. Even in my first class, I learned about pencils and now I use that information when I just want to draw and have fun. We learned about proportion, plan of bedroom and elevation and all, while still enjoying "
