Kimya Glasgow Inc continues in its goal to educate Vincentians in the Fashion Design field to international standards, as part of the development of the industry, in order for Vincentian stakeholders to be competitive and open up educational opportunities locally in the Creative and Garment Sector.
According to Ms. Glasgow, she usually get requests throughout the year for training, hence she decided to host a summer course again this year.

She said the global industry is changing and growing in amazing ways and SVG needs to be a part of it.
