What Past Students Are Saying:

For 5 months prior to taking this course, I was doing my own research and trying to figure things out on my own. I constantly found myself having a lot of questions and uncertainties. After speaking to Melanie during a free 15 minute consultation that ended up being 30 minutes, I instantly knew she was knowledgeable and honest. It took just one conversation for me to know she could help me to finally start my brand. Taking this course has given me the confidence I needed to really make this startup happen. It's like having a partner there with you every step of the way giving you feedback and advice. I cannot say enough great things about it.

Before I discovered Melanie's course through virtue + vice, I thought starting my own sustainable clothing line was unachievable. I decided that joining the virtual class was going to be perfect for answering my questions and building my knowledge of the industry. Through Melanie's expertise and attentiveness, I have been able to start my business and set realistic goals for my line and brand. I knew there would be a lot to learn, but this course lays it out in a thorough and comprehensive way that is stress-free and exciting!
