# Inspiration # Experience
I really enjoyed this course. It opened my thoughts and provided lots of new inspirations. I always wanted to learn about fashion and what goes into garment making. It was great to hear from so many different teachers and their experiences. It shows, how people view what you wear and what message we send to others. Fashion can be bold, can be subtle but to make it who we are as a human being is truly liberating. I want to thank WIFD and all my well experienced teachers for making me strong and bold. I will definitely recommend WIFD to everyone who is serious about their career.

The greatest achievement was that, I made my own Wedding Dress, which everyone admired...
