Liza, who has had extensive experience in the fashion industry, including 12 years in New York City working with fashion designers, prides herself on her unique methods and networking she brings to The Cut Fashion Design Academy.

“I started my first fashion business when I was 19 years old, turning a tiny studio into a 9000 square foot factory with 50 employees within five years,” she says of her humble beginnings.

She emphasizes the importance of keeping classes at the Academy to a maximum of six students, saying that the very intensive programs allow for one on one training. With plenty of lab training hours (60% of the program), and the opportunity to learn in a working environment, where established brands (including Herschel) product develop and produce, students will be able to learn an immeasurable amount about the fashion industry in a short time.
