But how to actually break into the buzziest fashion markets of them all? Is it possible to open the doors without a special key – the right network of people? A successful business requires more than a great design.

‘This is exactly how we came up with an idea to launch a 3-day market entry and business growth course for fashion professionals who want to grow in the UK and beyond, – says Fashion Bloc founder Ieva Zu.

This course is designed for the growth-ready designer brands and graduates who are launching their own brands. The course is delivered in London at Istituto Marangoni and taught by industry professionals, not academics, thus, you will have an opportunity to meet Fashion Buyers, Sales Agents, Fashion Editors and other experts that will help you understand and grow your business.

Our first cohort of the International Fashion Business Course in February 2017 was super successful.
