    Hello Mrs.  Heidi,


    Hope all is well.  First of all I want to express how grateful  I am to have found you,  the Fashion knowledge  you provide is exceptional to no other.

    I have a long time  dream to work in fashion.  I took a few  fashion courses at  F.I.T.  but never completed a degree in fashion design.  I want to enter the fashion industry as CAD designer  or a Technical  Designer.  I plan to take all of your online tutorial  and I read your portfolio ebook  it was very entertaining and really open my eyes.


    My question is :  (if you please can guide me in the right direction )


    Should I get a  Bachelor degree in Fashion Production Development?


    I already have a A.A in business management.


    I don’t  have any experience in fashion design .



    Thank you for just being you. YOU ARE A ROCK STAR !!!!


    Warm regards,


    Jane Jimenez
