Learn From An Expert

Everyone has a teacher, someone to look up to, to learn from. B.Artise is my mentor and teacher who I met while taking a course at the Fashion Institute of Technology called  Building A Vintage Business. For everyone who really wants to learn about the ins and outs of the vintage clothing business, I suggest you invest in this seminar. It starts October 1st in the evening. In addition, Bridgett teaches another course at FIT on  sustainability. Clothing Reconstruction is an insider view on being green and stylish. Click on the class titles to find out more and I suggest you learn, make some extra cash and get stylish.
