"Sustainability is more than recycling. It's about making the least impact to our environment, and that includes designing things that outlasts fashion.
We enjoy showing our students' work to the world. This is where they get excellent support and our students excel at it.
We start promoting them at the end of their 1st year, and we don't stop even after they have graduated."
