    My mom and I had so much fun in the class! We ended up making a pouch and now we use it for our travels. Ingvild is a very patient teacher and we’re so happy we took her class.

  • Alteration - Basics Sewing (1-Hour Private)

    Reviewed by Susan E. on 5/23/2024
    I came to the Alterations private class with the intention of really understanding how to alter clothes so they actually fit me. For many years I've worn oversized tops, boxy shirts, and so forth. This was an ambitious venture for me: how to keep my beloved garments but update them to my actual (slim) measurements. I found Ingvild a very reassuring person. In fact, she had such a reassuring presence that I was able to discuss frankly the aspects of my figure I wanted to de-emphasize. I came home excited about the various ways I can remake the garments I already own. I am pleased that I signed up for time with her.

Discover the Best Fashion Classes in NYC

Do you live in New York City, and are you always scouting for the latest trends? Are you someone who buys new clothing as the seasons change, looking for that perfect piece that will stand out on social media? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you already have an idea of what fashion is. This global industry centers around anticipating what consumers will wear and how they want to present themselves to others. Fashion is generally defined as a type of self-expression and autonomy that allows a person to try on many roles in life. Just like your style can change with the seasons, anyone can change and learn the art of fashion.

Why You Should Learn Fashion in NYC

Learning fashion in New York City can potentially be a way to mitigate some stress you feel from work or school. It also gives you something productive to do during your free time, which you might spend studying trends, visiting stores, or coming up with content ideas to post on social media. And when you learn the art of fashion, you can spread your gift to others by creating outfits that they will love.

Once you understand the basics of fashion, you will realize that there is a global community that loves fashion, both as a hobby and in a professional sense. You might want to research local clubs, groups, events, and organizations where you can meet others that are interested in fashion. Just bear in mind that these groups are generally for social purposes, and not so people who are more experienced with fashion can teach a beginner.

Lastly, if you learn how to make outfits that are visually appealing, you could easily take that one step further and start a side hustle where you dress customers for a fee. This is a marketable skill that you could easily put on your resume. And if your love of fashion translates into getting crafty, a little time with a needle and thread could lead to you making your own customized clothing pieces that you could sell online or in-person.

In-Person Fashion Classes & Schools in NYC

Virtual Fashion Classes & Schools

Don’t want to take an in-person fashion class in New York City? While taking an online fashion class might seem daunting at first, this unique way to learn has its pros and cons just like any other type of learning. You can attend a virtual fashion class from anywhere, which means you can work on your fashion project in the comfort of your own home, at the beach, or even in a coffee shop…wherever you want. You also do not have to commute to a classroom, which saves both money and time. The biggest con about taking an online fashion class is that you generally have to supply your own materials and equipment.

If you are interested in online fashion classes, CourseHorse has a variety of options to suit your needs. For example, How to Start Your Fashion Company: Design Your Line is a live online course offered by M SHOP. This all levels class offers you firsthand expertise on how to set up your fashion business and will show you how to go from an idea in your mind to physical designs in your hands. 

Another M SHOP offering is How to Manufacture Your Clothing + Accessories Lines, which will tell you everything you need to know about creating a physical product on a larger scale. Your instructor teaches at premier fashion institutions, so you know you are in good hands. 

How to Start Your Fashion Company: E-Comm + Boutique by M SHOP is a live online offering that will take you from concept to owning your own fashion shop. There are tips and tricks taught for both online and physical stores, depending on your interests and who the audience is for your designs.

How to Become a Fashion Stylist is a live online class from M SHOP that delves into how to break into the business of fashion as a stylist. You will learn more about how the industry works and what you need to do in order to make yourself stand out.
