It's about time that someone in Toronto is building a resource for young creatives in the city to turn their hobbies and passions into skills! Enter the Toronto Fashion Academy. About a week and some days ago, I went to go check out the Toronto Fashion Academy for my self and get to see what was going on first hand. Upon meeting the budding team and checking out the space, I was excited to learn that the Toronto Fashion Academy is not only a Toronto based facility that will help creative individuals who want to specialize in fashion, photography, modeling, make-up, hair-styling and other divisions of the arts, learn about a specified trait they have interest in, but will also give these students and advanced students joining with an existing knowledge the opportunity to build their portfolios and really be able to define their skills and be a part of a cohesive environment where they can not only harness their skills but also have creditable resources and opportunities for work, jobs, etc.
At the Toronto Fashion Academy there will be a variety of different workshops for students to participate in such as fashion photography - where students will learn to go beyond the image and learn current non-destructive image editing and printmaking as well as be encouraged to think, work and perform as a professional in each shoot, which not only will teach you technical skills, but more importantly, focus on creativity that comes with fashion photography. A modeling workshop where the Toronto Fashion Academy uses professional facilitators and current Supermodels with many years of experience in the modeling & performing arts industry to ensure that a high standard of tuition is maintained.There will also be a makeup academy where students who are looking for a career in make-up will be provided with comprehensive coaching with utmost support which will allow you to leave the Academy proudly and confidently as a professional Makeup Artist, who is guaranteed work within the vast entertainment industry. Fashion Styling will also be a workshop and will give students knowledge from all the styling & fashion skills you need, plus insights into how to run a PROFITABLE styling business, you will learn it all. There are also hair styling and acting classes that will be provided as well!
Another very unique aspect of Toronto Fashion Academy is that I learned they will be providing will be a 'Celebrity Faculty' of industry insiders with backgrounds in modeling, hair & makeup, and acting. Students will get the opportunity to not only learn the skill but learn about the industry first hand from reputable individuals who have turned their skills into their life's work. Heck, who knows, someone might even be coming in to teach y'all about the blogging world! Now with all that being said I think that the Toronto Fashion Academy is seriously on to something great and is definitely something that should be taken advantage of! Being in it's earliest of stages I am sure it will be a lot easier to be a student now then later!
