Vancouver Sewing Classes (VSC) is an industrial fashion design studio created in 2011. VSC is NOT a school. We create a safe learning environment to help people understand that fashion design is a trade skill not an academic field. Furthermore, we teach and train our clients with practical trade skills so they can make a good professional living without spending $45,000 to $150,000 on their fashion training or wasting one to four years of their life in an academic institution. VSC helps clients gain plenty of experience and confidence. In addition, VSC helps clients control their own fate and create their own business opportunities. Life is short – why waste time and money in one to four years in an academic fashion school when you can accomplish a lot more, while spending less, and achieve everything in less than one year of learning practical fashion trade skills at VSC. A fashion diploma/degree is completely useless if you have no real fashion technical trade skills and no relevant experience. Why spend all your money with a fashion design institution that cannot guarantee your career success, while you have no money left to start-up your own fashion line or business because the school has already taken all your money, and you have no real practical fashion design skills to even get a job in the apparel industry?!?
For example, rather than spending your entire $45,000 to upwards of $150,000 of your savings/loans on a fashion design institution, you can invest a small portion of that money in learning REAL practical fashion design trade skills at VSC, then use the remaining money to fund your own fashion line or business. We strongly encourage all student clients to invest 50%-70% of their school tuition fees into their business equity, capital and branding, rather than handing over 100% of their hard-earned money to a fashion college or university.
At VSC, we believe that your success is our success because we deliver REAL RESULTS! A fashion design career/business offer many great opportunities, and the sky is the limit, if you are “willing to commit 100%”, “make the time to learn” and “put in the effort”. Nothing is impossible if you love what you do!
