The fashion course I took at GTI was the making of my fashion career as I followed this path once I left GTI. It prepared me well in terms of styling, business ventures and fashion blogs. I cannot recommend this course highly enough as it so specialised in its career focus of fashion. The teachers are very helpful and encourage you too follow your fashion dreams which is exactly what I did.
