If you are not willing to do the work it will take to achieve your goals and create the life you desire, I am not the right coach for you.
What separates us from other fashion business coaching programs?
When I attended school for fashion design, I remember still being confused at times about certain design aesthetics and needing 1 on 1 time. Most courses are meant for a large group to attend at once. Here at IEFA, we allow each client to receive discrete private time during our 1 on 1 accountability sessions. We also give our clients lifetime access to the information that you will learn. You leave most other fashion courses with no knowledge of how to profit as a designer or fashion business owner. We actually prepare our clients for the reality of fashion which requires real numbers, multiple streams and dedication. This industry is 70% business and 30% creative. We want our clients to be able to leave their 9-5 and replace their income with a steady income as a fashion entrepreneur.
Does IEFA only assist fashion designers?
No, we assist all fashion industry entrepreneurs. Whether you are aspiring or emerging, we are here to assist with your transition form employee to fashionpreneur! From boutique owners to stylists, we have the bullet proof system to create recurring profit within your brand.
How does the I.E. Fashion Academy work?
Our programs are designed to help you become a successful fashion designer and industry entrepreneur in 12 months or less. The I.E. Fashion Academy courses are based online. Each month,clients receive detailed private e-courses that are created and narrated by your Fashionpreneur Strategist. Along with each course are assignments that hold our clients accountable and assure understanding of the content. Each month, our clients have private accountability sessions.

What is the potential success rate?
I myself used to struggle with generating a profit as a fashion designer and entrepreneur. I was unsure about how to network and create lasting partnerships within the industry. I hired a business coach that was not affiliated with fashion to assist me. After receiving all the tools that my coach gave me, I grew my business by 238% in sales alone. IrregularExposure.com receives over 189,000 views every quarter and does high figures in sales. We have created a brand that is projected to gross over $1.2 million in sales. With the accountability and knowledge from my experience as a fashion industry specialist, I am excited to share with my clients how to measure their success as well.
How quickly will I begin to see results?
Quite frankly, it all depends on how committed you will be to the program and your determination. We have seen people successfully start brands and increase their sales by $137% within 4 months. We also have clients that have left their job within 12 months or less. It depends on your work ethic, dedication and communication. Let's work!
