“In the past week, I learned so much from the teachers that came all the way from ESMOD Berlin International University of Art for Fashion. The classes were well structured and the teachers made sure that we understood each step of the process during our workshops. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this program and have gotten so many insights that will help me improve my brand”
