1. Best For Budding Fashion Designers
You’ll learn from “Project Runway: Season 2” finalist Daniel Vosovic the nuanced process of finding inspiration for potential fashion designs, and the first step to bringing them to life: creating a useful mood board. “I’ll teach how you to go beyond the literal repurposing of the inspiration itself and how to connect your inspiration to a design that’s right for your consumer,” Vosovic says of his class.
2. Best For Fashion Bloggers
Having a blog is easier than it’s ever been, but getting your blog noticed by the public at large is probably more challenging than it’s ever been. That’s where this class comes in: it will teach you the essentials you need to start mastering Search Engine Optimization, that grizzly bear of a skill that has even the most influential of web editors scratching their heads at times.
3. Perfect For the Aspiring Entrepreneur
From coming up with your brand’s name to learning how to master the sometimes treacherous obstacle course of creating a logo for that brand, expert Jeff Staple goes over all the basics in this course. A graduate of the school of Nike, Staple has been in the business for 15 years and successfully launched his own apparel brand, so he would know.
4. Great For Aspiring Illustrators & Fashion Designers
If you love the art behind fashion even more than you love the clothes themselves, this might be the perfect class for you. Illustrator Dallas Shaw, who has created concept and advertising illustrations for the likes of Chanel, DKNY, and Oscar de la Renta, leads this course on how to sketch fashion designs with pencil, color them in, and complete works.
5. Ideal For Entrepreneurs
Are you a budding jewelry designer who needs a place to hawk your wares, or perhaps you work for a website that’s trying to break into the e-commerce game? Either way, this course will teach you the basics of setting up an Internet marketplace using one of the biggest blogging platforms around: WordPress. This constitutes everything from registering a domain to managing orders once you’re in business.
