My Fashion Tutor Head Start Programme
Knowledge can be nothing but a bonus, when starting your own business, starting a new job or looking to upgrade your knowledge to advance the career ladder.
It can take months or even years to get up to speed with the in’s and out’s of the fashion industry. Experiencing something for the first time can be daunting and pressurising, especially when you need to impress, meet a deadline or appear professional and composed.
