@Poster, @ayettymama really is correct, I did Visual Merchandising for some years, left due to ill health.

I would find it hard to get back into the industry now without a degree.

If it's at all possible get a degree even if it's after a few years of working. Good luck smiley

If you dont mind me asking where are you currently located/living? I can pretty much give you a more detailed peice of advice on the financial part depending on where you live wink I am also a fashionista and part time seamstress. Here in the states the best schools are expensive and require relocation to more populated states/cities. Honestly great fashion schools are only good at giving you a good look as far as your resume if you want to work for an established designer/company. However all schools start off with the basics: design, marketing, merchandising etc. You have have to be TOP OF THE LINE in your craft because the fashion world is HIGHLY competative!!!
