I attended the Fashion Business Masterclass in October 2015 and have been mentored by David since. I can honestly say it was one of the most valuable experiences of my career, I can’t believe how much information was packed into just 4 days! David was approachable, knowledgeable and engaging throughout.

I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in starting their own fashion brand, miss it at your peril!

The course was very interesting and inspirational my hand was aching from all the writing I would definitely recommend to others.
