What do I say!!! Mercedes is a powerhouse of knowledge and so motivational to all designers looking to excel in todays market! Thank you again Mercedes for the awesome advice. Please please come back to WWd Magic and do more seminars!!!!!– Kenya, Atlanta, GA
7 business partners and my self started an apparel company a few years ago. When we started we did not know the 1st step in what to do and how to proceed. 2 years later we now know that the answer is to attend any of the workshops being offered by GPC. We learned more in 6 hours with Mercedes than we have in 2 yrs of researching, reading books, and trial by error. Unfortunately we are from California and will need to wait until she comes back for another session. For all those of you living in New York, I envy you. This company is another reason to take pride in what your city has. A very competent company that will increase your chances of success by passing on the knowledge they have in the fashion industry.– Primo M, San Jose, CA
I attended a couple of seminars at TexWorld in the past year about Starting a Fashion Line on a Shoestring Budget and they were both very well done! Mercedes presented us with lots of tips that I know will save me a lot of trouble as I try to build my own fashion line. I know her advice will also help me save a lot of money too!– Christine K, New York, NY
I also received a copy of the Fashion 101 presentation on a CD that she has for sale after the seminar. What a great resource to refer back to as I start my research! I know she will be a great resource as I move forward with my fashion business. It’s so daunting trying to navigate this world by yourself as a brand new designer, but I’m so happy that I found her as a resource. I know I will work with her in the future as I start to build my business.
If you haven’t seen her videos on YouTube, I highly recommend them…also full of great information!
This is a well organized, logical seminar that gives you real life, on the spot advice on working with buyers from the first sale to maintaining a profitable retail location.– Clutch E., Scottsdale, AZ
Thank you for your social occasion presentation in Dallas. I loved the idea for “toys for tots” at the Holiday season and plan to use it to bring in new clientele.– T. Trousseau
…I can’t believe how much I learned in 7 hours, whew!!!! My head is spinning from all the great information.– R. Monahan
That was the best $250 investment I’ve made since I started this venture. I wish I would have met you last May.– S. Brosius
….I’m really excited about getting our store open as soon as possible and after your class I feel this is now possible.– A. Meeks
I’m still thinking about your class…I thought it was incredible BUT it also made me realize how much I don’t know about the business. I still have a lot of saving to do, and I need to take more classes. Keep me posted on your next class, it’s worth taking again.– P. Diaz
