If you thought streetwear was dead after the goldrush of the early 2000s, hide that wallet. Right-hand man to Yeezus and emerging fashion icon Virgil Abloh is launching his own streetwear course across London, Berlin, NYC and Tokyo in April of 2016 with online options available through Mastered as well.
While nothing worth having is easy or free, the six month course at $650 USD per month totals $3900 to soak in the brilliance from the OFF-WHITE creator. The website calls for ambitious and commercially active brands to apply which technically means anyone with a bigcartel and a dream who wants to receive a copy/paste email from the DONDA Don. Start whipping those silkscreens off the press now and you could be tweeting at the likes of guest tutors like Nick Knight, Katie Hillier and Tim Blanks before summertime.
All jokes aside, the syllabus does include some fertile grounds on sales strategies, branding and category expansion.

Four racks buys a ton of printed tees and Google AdWords so don’t be scared to bet on your own horse before forking over that cash.
