We have developed this program to help guide designers through all the steps needed to be successful.
After years of being an invited speaker at tradeshows, fashion weeks and schools I have noticed how little real life information there is out there. I have also found, after taking several workshops and seminars myself, the information is not genuine or complete. In fact many are just hour long pitches trying to sell you something.
The speakers we have chosen are all industry veterans but their names may not be familiar to you. Real industry moguls are not household names, they prefer to stay out of the limelight. Think Jessica Simpson. She is the "front" of a billion dollar (yes that is a real number) clothing and accessories brand but the "people" behind her are the ones that made her that billion.
This group of speakers is not made up of professional speakers that might have hidden agendas. They are true garmentos, they love this industry, have great passion for it and are taking some of their personal time to give back. If someone is speaking about buying you can be assured they are a buyer and not a consultant. If someone is talking about production be assured they are not a factory owner but a production specialist. I think you get the idea.
