Well, other than all the hours of course videos, lectures, free printables and templates, you get a spiffy workbook to use while you follow along the course sections.

Did you know that the actual act of writing brings the information to the forefront of your brain and helps you focus and pay attention? You'll have an easier time remembering everything you learn if you follow along in your workbook. How cool is that?

Here is a little preview of the workbook (not all pages are shown)...

Here is the good part...the workbook is just one of the resources in Fashion Design Bootcamp.

I’m going to show you exactly how I use these and give you the same templates I use to make sure my quality of work is consistent and impeccable.

  • My personal list of fabric stores that I shop at, design with, sew and wear (no more guessing if a fabric store is good, just use my favs).
  • My entire library of croquis, fashion figures and moodboard templates. Forget trial and error, use these vetted and proven templates to save months of time and shortcut your growth.
  • Copy and paste the exact templates I use to design and use in my workflows and portfolio (you could figure it out yourself or just copy mine).
  • A printable workbook filled with checklists, worksheets and tips to help you remember and apply what you learn.

I wish I would have had this when I started out, but it simply didn’t exist.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ Who is this course for?

This course is for aspiring designers that want a solid background in designing fashion. This course is also very helpful for self-taught designers and fashion designers that need a refresher course. This is NOT a patternmaking course and will NOT teach you how to draft patterns or sew.

+ What will this course teach me?

You'll learn the fundamental steps to creating great designs. You'll learn how to find inspiration, organize your ideas, draw your designs, and develop your own style as a fashion designer. I also share all my little tips and resources that I've picked up over the last few decades.

+ What if I am unhappy with the course?

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you complete the course and haven't learned anything new, contact us in the first 30 days of purchase and we will give you a full refund.

+ When does the course start and finish?

The course starts Spring 2018 and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.

+ How long do I have access to the course?

How does forever sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. As long as Creative Bootcamp exists, you'll have unlimited access to your courses. You'll also get ALL future upgrades for FREE to your courses.

+ This course would be a big investment for me. Is it really worth the price?

The full cost of tuition in an Art & Design school is $44,020 for a fashion degree. I condense the first two years of a fashion degree into this course. This course is based on all the areas I noticed that new and self-taught designers were lacking in. You will not only leap into Fashion Design but it will also help you see the areas that you should concentrate on to become a stronger designer. And if you pick one of the higher tiers, you're also saving money. I normally charge upwards of $100+ an hour for my design services. The course may be an investment, but imagine how much time and money you could be wasting by NOT enrolling in this course.

+ Is this just a glorified illustration course?

Nope, it's not. Yes, you will learn how to draw a fashion figure, but there is so much more to fashion design than sketching. We cover other design aspects in this course as well.

+ Why did you make this bootcamp?

This is the course I wish I had while I was learning how to design. It cuts through the fluff and shows you exactly what you need to set yourself apart. I don't waste your precious time on things you don't need. AND you can learn in your jammies. ;)

I'm so excited to help you get started on this journey. I can't wait to see you in Fashion Design Bootcamp!
