"I took Fashion Business at Seneca at the same time when I started my own fashion business, and one of the greatest highlights was the practicality of the program. I was able to directly apply what I learned on a daily basis to the operation of my own fashion business. I believe in the fashion program at Seneca so much that I continue to hire graduates and welcome interns from the same program, as I am confident they are equipped with the skills needed to work in the exciting and multi-faceted world of fashion business.”
