Fashion business

Understanding the business side of fashion is important for every Fashion Designer who wants to own his/her own fashion label. Not everyone has the chance to study and continually learn through formal training, so we created a programme to help you get started or get better at the brand you may have already launched. You don’t need a matric certificate, high school diploma or any other formal qualification to learn with us, so choose an option and let’s help you conquer the business side of the fashion world.

Starting a small fashion business

If you enjoy design, pattern-making, or sewing, CAFB’s fashion business programmes will help you turn that into a small fashion business of your own. There’s a formula for getting it right, which goes beyond fashion business plans and posting on social media, and that’s what we want to help you work through.Starting your modelling career can make you nervous and excited all at once. The good thing is that you don’t need any previous experience to get started. You don’t need a matric certificate or high school diploma either.

Start a fashion business career

Here’s what you’ll learn in our beginner fashion business course:

  • Why fashion business?
