If you want to get your design out in the world and start making a profit doing what you love, we can put you on the fast track to success.
After launching my own line, and the lines of 100’s of independent designers, I decided to create the Designer Launch Intensive as a foolproof way to get your designs out of your garage and into boutiques and department stores.
Through 2 successful runs and listening closely to feedback, we’ve expanded and perfected the DLI to make sure that this class has everything that YOU need to successfully launch your line.
At V.Mora, I believe in teaching rather than preaching. I’ve had over a decade of actual experience in the fashion industry and I’ve seen that designers are hungry for this information (and the value it provides). When I was starting V.Mora there was nothing out there like this. After taking my company from my spare bedroom to a million dollar business, I created the Designer Launch Intensive to show you how to do the same. I’m not into keeping my business success secrets to myself. I know the three steps you should be focusing on now and the next 50 steps that lie ahead.
Launching a line can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t need to be. In this 12-part course I will cover everything you’ll need to know to be a successful designer in the industry. You have the designs, now let’s give you to tools you need to launch your line. This course sets up the foundation you need to build a successful business on your first try. I walk you through every step you need to take to avoid the pitfalls that so many designers encounter.
Through our Designer Launch Intensive, I use my years of expertise as a buyer, a pattern maker and a designer as well as my NATIONWIDE list of contacts to help you shave years off of the learning process.
