Portland Fashion Institute is a nationally accredited private nonprofit career institute of higher learning and Oregon’s only accredited fashion design college.
Stop wasting your time trying to find who to call. Stop wasting your time making calls that are never returned.
There are 29 production houses from Vancouver, Wash., to Eugene, Ore., with most of them in the Portland area. But independent designers can’t find them or get them to return calls. That’s because any quality production house is busy and won’t waste time with you if you don’t know how to talk to them.
This class will teach you how to talk the talk. You’ll find out what you need to have, what you need to look for and what you need to say in order to get your product sewn right: At the right time, right way and right price.
