Success Stories

Fashion Antidote courses attract a diverse range of people from a variety of back grounds. We attract students of all ages, women, men and teenagers. Some are absolute beginner’s others are experienced industry professionals.

About half our students are home sewers and hobbyists taking sewing, drawing or design courses for their own interest whist other wish to learn new skills or update skills to gain employment in the fashion industry or to set up their own fashion businesses.

We also have those who already have a fashion business and need extra training, business consultation or pattern cutting and sampling services.
