I completed a fashion designer course. I already had the knowledge when I came to the course, while for me there were a lot of insights and new information. I really liked how the topics and the presentation of the material were distributed. These are not tiring long videos, but interesting lessons, divided by topic, which is not tiring and you can digest the information after each lesson. Very interesting homework assignments, despite the fact that I already have the skills, it took me time to complete them to the required level of quality. For me, the acquired knowledge is enough to start developing myself as a brand. Thank you very much to the teacher Yulia Kulakova for the good feedback and interesting lessons. I wish you to enjoy learning and good luck in your new and wonderful creative profession.
