1.What is Fashion?
When it comes to personal wealth creation, the fashion industry in many ways parallels the entertainment industry. While talent is very important, other factors such as hard work and persistence are critical to long term accomplishments.
2.Why should we learn entrepreneurship with design?
You're a person who wants to make a difference. A leader and a person who wants to explore outside your comfort zone. You're passionate about design and fashion-and you have a mind built for business and a vision to make your mark in the design industry.
Your goal: to recognize the opportunities in the rapidly changing fashion and design industries and to hone the most relevant and timely business skills needed to turn these opportunities into business successes. Your dream: to make beautiful things that make life more beautiful. To capture and reflect the world in a meaningful, unique way. To make people understand your vision. To cut through clutter. To visually persuade, promote, and inform.
