  • Interested in learning a new skill
  • Wants to learn how to pull inspiration, illustrate fashion croquis, and sew using a pattern

    Week-by-week outline:

    Week 2: Finish mood boards, making color swatch cards, naming collections, making a customer profile, and learning how to pull inspiration from mood boards and colors.
