Fashion industry was braker!

I have really been enjoying this podcast as it is giving me so many insight's into the fashion industry. I'm so thankful that Heidi has dedicated so much time and effort in conducting these interviews, really breaking bariers and going beyond to discover exactly how people are making it in the industry. I really recommend this podcast to all people in the industrie, as there is always something new to learn.

Thank you so much Heidi!

Heidi, the Moses of new designers

The SFD podcast is hands down the best free resource for new designers, fashion freelancers and entrepreneurs in the history of the world. There is more real world applicable knowledge within these interviews than any BFA. Not only is Heidi an exceptional interviewer, she is not scared to ask uncomfortable questions or share her own vulnerabilities. It is absurd the amount of free materials she gives away over her multi-platform presence. Anyone who is struggling to navigate the complex and intimidating fashion industry, look no further for you have found the holy grail.

From one designer to another - Thank you

Oh Heidi, where to begin. How about the beginning!

I started listening to this podcast to kind of drown out the noise when my coworkers get on conference calls; thinking I might inadvertently pick up a lil pearl here and there. I just so happened to be considering freelance (just signed up and fumbled through a few Upwork proposals a week prior) and your guest that week happened to be discussing how she got her freelance business up and running through - wait for it - Upwork! So I was instantly hooked.

Fastforward to today - I've plowed through all of the episodes, commiserated with your guests on this insane industry we've chosen, and now I'm starting my own cut and sew merchandising company using this skillset I've spend the last 13 years honing.

Soon after discovering your show I had lunch with an old boss. Between you and him I finally realized how valuable my skills could be. I hope when your head hits the pillow tonight you will consider that you are one of the sparks that ignited my future success story.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
