At Vancouver Sewing Classes (VSC), many clients ask why we give away so many Free Bonus Gifts (worth up to $17,000 for each client).  So, what is the catch here?

The answer is quite simple.  There is NO catch.  Anybody who comes from the fashion industry knows that, if you don’t have all the sewing machines, equipment, and tools, you simply cannot make a professional looking garment.  This is a fact. And, if you don’t have the right techniques, you are doomed to fail in the fashion industry.

We give our clients brand-new professional sewing machines, equipment, and tools so they can practise and master all of their technical skills as soon as they arrive in their home or studio.  The FREE Bonus Gifts allow our clients to immediately begin their skill training, practicum, and exploration of the world of apparel sewing and design, as well as making money right out of the gate.  Our clients will get to sew garments each week to sell, while they learn new sewing techniques from VSC.  They are able to incorporate new techniques into the array of pre-existing ones they already learned in previous lessons with us.  Our clients are able to layer all of these techniques together and create new ones.

If you have already spent $50,000 to over $300,000 in your fashion school program and you recently graduated from your design school with no free professional sewing machines, fashion textbooks, equipment and tools, how are you going to make professional garments?  On the other hand, your design school (if you attended one) has already taken all your money from your bank account, and you may be on the hook for a big student loan.  How are you going to make a living or pay all your bills?  Sadly, this is how most fashion design students get scammed by these posh fashion institutions, and they are completely clueless.

Fashion schools will NEVER give you ANY free sewing machines or equipment NOR will they provide you with all the Southeast Asian factory contacts from overseas, nor will they help you to succeed in your business or in the fashion industry.

However, at VSC, we offer FREE Bonus Gifts consisting of brand-new domestic and industrial sewing machines, a designer’s dress form, an industrial iron, an industrial ironing board, professional sewing and drafting tool kits, sewing attachment feet, and so on.  These FREE Bonus Gifts are shipped directly to the front door of your home and our fashion instructors will help you to set up your fashion workroom in the comfort of your own home or fashion studio free of charge.  Your workroom will be professionally set up like a real designer’s sampling and production facility.  We give you these free, brand-new sewing machines, fashion tools, textbooks and equipment so you can learn to master your craft at VSC, while making passive income at the same time.  Our fashion design programs are laser focused on helping you build all of your technical skills, and you also get many opportunities to create your own samples for your own fashion business, while you are learning at VSC.  Furthermore, you will gain plenty of experience and exposure while building your portfolio on Instagram, Facebook Marketplace, Twitter, etc.  Our fashion instructor will teach you all of the tricks of the trade, while you create your own sample from scratch in just three hours, and, when you finish your sample, you can post your work on your own website, as well as on the social media platforms of your choice.  The best part of it all is that you will also be able to sell all your samples and make money doing so.  You get to make a lot of money while learning fashion design skills at VSC!

Furthermore, you will learn to make samples to sell for profit OR for production overseas.  You are not making these samples for a letter grade or, worse, a school fashion show.  Unfortunately, if you study fashion design in a regular school setting, you will not be able to do any of this; instead, you will waste your own time, money and resources learning nothing particularly useful. 

The reality is that many fashion institutions are only interested in stealing your money and, once they take all of your savings and you have a large student loan to repay, they will turn their back on you!  When you are doing a fashion show for your school, you are purely promoting the school, not yourself, and you will have no money left to even start your own fashion line by the time you graduate from your fashion program.  You may be heavily in debt for the next 10 years with a huge student loan, which means you will never be able to start your own fashion line because you have no money left! 

Why would you want to become a victim of this fashion institution scam?

When you are paying for a fashion design degree or diploma at any fashion school these days, you are actually paying for a fashion business marketing degree/diploma NOT for a fashion design degree/diploma, which means you won’t have any real technical skills to create your own samples for your fashion line.  Many fashion schools are misleading and scamming their graduates, which is why many of their fashion design students cannot sew, draft or grade patterns, nor do they have the professional technical skills to create any sample under three hours when being tested at a job interview.  Sadly, many of these fashion graduates will become unemployed and they will most likely end up working in a retail or a hospitality job that pays them the bare minimum wage, after they have already invested $50,000 to $300,000 for a fashion bachelor’s degree/diploma.

VSC’s fashion design program is far more successful than any fashion design school in the world because we offer you REAL VALUE for your financial investment in your career.  The irony is that VSC is not actually a school – we are in a league of our own.  At the end of the day, you will spend much less, but you will gain a whole lot more at VSC, without wasting one to four years of your life, and the best part of it all is that you are guaranteed to get REAL RESULTS when you learn fashion design technical skills with us!
