Founded in 2004, LegsApparel Fashion Academy offers the best alternative to vocational education and is one, among few, of the only design school to close the full circle from design conceptualization through readymade product to marketing. The students are provided with the necessary knowledge to develop and master their skills in learning, understanding and practicing fashion design as a profession and as a business. All learners graduate as properly trained professional fashion designers ready to start a career in the industry or launch their own clothing label.

The classic study of fashion design is combined with the production of a full ready to wear collection for women and men, as well as mastering the student’s portfolio presentation skills. All the garments are created with the learners original design ideas, essential to developing a unique signature style. After graduation the designers are able to conceptualize and present any design idea on any fashion brief, pattern all kind of ready to wear, Couture & Avant-garde garments, as well as produce those.

Vital requirements for choosing to study fashion design include creative flare for design, good math’s skills for pattern making and patience for cutting and sewing.

Comprehensive study: LegsApparel Fashion Academy offers the most comprehensive education programs in the fashion industry. Review the content of all subjects along with the sample lessons. Be sure to get similar course details from other schools, compare and see the difference in the quality of the syllabus.

Practical work: With LegsApparel Fashion Academy the students construct 12 ready to wear garments in the Basic program and additional 12 Couture and Avant-garde outfits in the Advanced program. All garments are created with the learners original designs, helping them develop their signature style. When choosing fashion education, enquire how many garments will be produced and whether they offer freedom of design as all other schools restrict the project work to few standard designs only.

Online support: LegsApparel Fashion Academy assigns a maximum of 9 students per tutor, allowing each and every future designer to receive personal attention. The learners are provided with the Skype address and telephone numbers of their tutor directly, unlike most other schools which require students to go through a "course advisor" or some other administration official.
