Hi guys,

Ok so I make my own designs/patterns (manually) and make gorgeous wedding/special occasion dresses. Why do I have to go to the Fashion Institue of NY (or Los Angeles) if I am already making these and sewing? I cannot own my own flagship store unless I go to the above schools?

Ignore anyone who says you need to go to those schools!

It is the customer which counts. If people want to buy your products, that is all that matters.

You most certainly can own a flagship store without studying there. You just will have to get your first big break without support from the industry. It's been done before.

Thanks Billy j and NJ Best! I didn't think I had to go to school to learn what I already know but I like the key word you mentioned ('without support from the industry'), I guess that is the benefit one gets from attending those schools since I may make contacts from the industry.
