"Angelica is passionate about her work and the passion shows in her teaching. She is extremely patient and creates an engaging environment for beginners like myself to explore our creativity. I have learned more in a single session with Angelica than I have with previous instructors at professional art studios" - Cynthia

"Angelica's fashion illustration class was amazing! Right from the start we took pencil to paper and had the basics we used to build upon. We left with three drawings, one of which we used a watercolor technique, along with tips of drawing wardrobe, faces, and hair. Angelica's clear instruction and kind encouragement instilled confidence and was much appreciated. Even if you have no backgroung in art, you can positively take this class and be amazed that you can draw too!" - Sunny

"Learning fashion illustration from Angelica was so much fun! I learned a lot from her, and in just a few short hours could sketch a full figure! I definitely recommend taking her workshop, wether you're a beginner or already know the basics, it's a great workshop to take" - Lauren

  • How much does the fashion program cost?
    Affordable unlike any fashion program you've ever heard of, these are the payment plans you can choose from: ONLINE STUDENT - $89 deposit and $179/month for 9 months or - $490 deposit and $89/month for 12 months LOS ANGELES STUDENT - $189 deposit and $290/month for 10 months or - $790 deposit and $189/month for 10 months
  • I'm completely new to fashion. Will this program work for me?
    Absolutely! The fashion program is actually best for beginners and those that have maybe tinkered. If you're already experienced, you'll still learn tons of new things, but you'll have to be patient with the days that consist of things you already know.
  • What if I already know how to sew?
    You can still take the class to add to your practice and knowledge in sewing, because then you'll also learn to build a sustainable business from your designs. Being a designer is not just about making pretty clothes. If you're not interested in learning methods of gaining income from fashion design, then you're just a hobbyist, and this program is not for you.
  • I already launched my own fashion business, and just want to learn how to make it successful."
    Congratulations on the courage to start this journey! You'll still love the fashion program, or you can also check out the LEARN button on my website menu. I have one-on-one business and marketing lessons, my VK Network, and continuing to add new educational resources.
  • How do I know that this program is real? I'm nervous about paying the tuition cost
    You can stay connected on Instagram @velvetkatart or @fashionacademynet, or my Kat Mail monthly newsletter for updates and invites to fun informational events.
  • I don't know what I want to do as a career, but I know I love fashion. How will this program help me?"
    It's no problem at all that you're not sure on what you want to do, because even many that think they know end up realizing it's not what they expected and change paths. Through this program, you'll be learning a variety of topics, all of which have their own careers. Becoming a fashion designer isn't the only possibility. Take me, for example - I've built a sustainable career out of my fashion illustrations and have also decided to start teaching fashion entrepreneurship. So in this program, you'll learn what works for you after you try everything out that is taught in the curriculum.
