I loved this course and got so much out of it! Kate is a wonderful presenter with so much experience in the ethical fashion space and was able to provide us with a thorough and holistic introduction to ethical fashion. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about ethical fashion. In my opinion it was fantastic value for money.

Kate is a great instructor. Her assignments and exercises really bring the most out of her students. She understands the industry/topic well and brings guest speakers into the class to complement her expertise. A must-take for anyone interested in changing the fashion industry or ethical business practices.
