Designers... It's time to get virtual style!

Bring your sketch book, your curiosity, and drive to polish up your sketching skills. Oh, and your beverage of choice...

Aimed towards designers of all levels and students, this event will provide sketching exercises in an informal, small group study session.


Wednesday, January 27 - Saturday, January 30, 2021


This last year has been a ‘game changer’ for the fashion industry in a lot of ways. So we want to know… “What are the next steps when Fashion is in Flux?”

January 27 – 30, the Apparel Industry Board Inc. is exploring that question with a series of 6 seminars and panels.


Per Session: $30

Whole Event (6 Sessions): $150
