“I have 3 paying clients, and 3 more scheduled for next month! As I have not gone to [fashion] school and I don’t have any real industry experience, I have to work hard for more and I will.”

– Arya Mishra, a flats freelancer from India who started without fashion school or experience


After the first lesson I was able to make a few tweaks to my portfolio and I landed a gig for $1890 in just a few weeks.

– Lucia Sanguinetti-Jonescheit, a textile designer from Germany who’d unsuccessfully been pitching on UpWork for 6 months

Even though a Successful Fashion Freelancer career doing work you love on your own terms is well within reach…

Most fashion-obsessed people like you settle for the Exhausted Employee rat race. It’s a brutal grind that will burn you out.


“I was being so underpaid [in my full-time job], but thought I didn’t have any other options. I dropped out of fashion school & wasn’t living in a fashion hub. Within 2 months of freelancing I already make more $$ in 1 day than I did in an entire week full time at my old job!! – Alexandra Agreda, a pattern maker from Pittsburg who was burnt out at her last job.

How much will it set me back? 💸

It’s the #1 question we get asked. And I totally get it.

FAST isn’t just some program I threw together and “hoped” it worked.

The foundation was built off my 10+ year career as a freelancer earning $100k+. But since I’m just one person (and maybe I got lucky), that wasn’t enough data for me.

So, I spent 2.5 years researching, interviewing other freelancers, trying other courses, and working intimately with some “guinea pig” students to test the content. I wanted to see what did (and what didn’t) work in our whacky industry.

Since the program launched in 2018, we’ve enrolled over 500 paying students from around the world, many of whom are out-earning their previous salaries and working fewer hours.

They’re enjoying the freedom and flexibility that freelancing offers. And they’re fulfilled doing work they love, on their own terms.

All that to say, the price is $1497 (and yes, there are payment plans).

It’s a drop in the bucket compared to the tens of thousands you spent (or are thinking about spending) on fashion school. A degree at FIT, FIDM, Parson’s or CSM will set you back years and leave you with an a$$load of student loans.

Alternatively, you can pay FAST off with one payment or over 6-12 months. And it’s designed to get you legit results (like actual paying clients to earn your investment back) in just a few weeks.

If you’re not happy? We offer a 60 day refund. Just show me you put in the work and I’ll give you all your money back.

I don’t know any fashion school that offers that sort of reassurance.
