In the two weeks at Modartech I have gone from being completely useless at illustration to loving my work! In such a short space of time I have learnt so much and I would like to recommend the course to anyone wanting to pursue a career in fashion design. Furthermore the staff at Modartech have been so welcoming and friendly to all of us: it has really made the whole experience very enjojable, and I would love to come back in the future.
