I’m working on my collection and modest fashion blog whilst taking the course. Because of the course, I’ve learnt better ways to launch my brand!
I must confess Carly the course is very detailed and isn’t something that can be rushed and I love that! The course has made me realise there are a lot of areas I need to research on for my company to remain relevant.
It’s a wonderful course!
