TESTIMONIALS

A "Touch Of Fashion" was a breath of fresh air for me after two years of hell. Living days made of design, styling, merchandising and communication was a dream but at the same time a dive into the reality of work. In addition to having fun and meeting stimulating people from both a human and professional point of view, I had the opportunity to reflect on my future. Definitely very useful to expand networking and inspiration for my university path in fashion business. Recommended for fans, industry workers or those who dream of the devil wears Prada.

I attended the "A Touch of Fashion" Workshop in July and was thrilled. Not only did I immerse myself in my passion for 3 days by listening to competent fashion professionals, but I also met many new people who I could eventually call friends and with whom I could share my interests and not feel like a "fish out of water". The workshop gave me tips on how to make my love for fashion become my future job, letting me know many facets that with a superficial look you would never imagine. I would like to thank Anna Paola and Silvia for those fantastic days of which, after a few months, I can't stop talking about because they really marked me. Thanks "A Touch of Fashion" I carry in my heart: every word, every experience and every intervention to be able to turn it into my job tomorrow.

Participating at "A Touch of Fashion" workshop was like being immersed in fashion week! I learned so much about the various roles in the fashion world and it was really helpful for the brand I'm working on. I recommend it to both those who want to learn more for passion or those who want to take their first steps in the fashion industry! It was top for me! Thanks also to "A Touch of Fashion" I now work for Lampoon.

"A Touch of Fashion" is an amazing workshop, great professors, a complete path to access and understand what you want to do or be in the fashion world. This experience has helped me to understand what I want to do in this field, first of all teaching and then it has also given me all the missing cards to be able to create my own line of jewelry. Anna, the organizer, is unique, sunny and available for help or advice even at the end of the course!
