Joseph I.

Attended: Marketing Your Product to Boutiques

The instructor, Mary Beth, was incredible. We sat in basically a circle formation as opposed to a standard classroom structure. This encouraged a high degree of participation among al involved. I learned so much not only from the instructor but from the other students as well. The students had diverse cultural backgrounds, professional backgrounds, experiences, goals and where at different stages of implementing their visions. I really enjoyed spending time with this group of individuals and wish that the class had more sessions so I would have had the opportunity to learn more from the instructor and other classmates. We all really clicked. I learned a lot and had so much fun.


Attended: Photoshop I (Mac)

Pretty good class. Learned a lot. Not a friendly atmosphere, though.

Attended: Fashion Styling: Home Fashion Business

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. It got my creativity flowing again. This class can be used as an elective in part of a Styling Certificate program offered at F.I.T. if you wish to continue on.

Attended: Make Your Own Sample Pet Garment

Attended: Learn to Sew Like a Pro I

This class was great. It was pretty beginner-friendly but a few people in the class had some experience and still enjoyed it. The teacher is fun and very helpful. I learned some great skills and plan to take the next level course. Make sure you can attend all of the sessions - there's no make-ups or absences allowed!


Attended: Building Your Business Brand

I was expecting something more into fashion e fashion brands, some actual examples, how to really do it into the fashion world. The class is kind of "old way". I enjoyed some parts of the class and could have an idea. It was good, nothing special.
