Fashion Production Academy

About Us

Hi There, We have on-hand experience in Fashion Production and our team has put together a comprehensive list of information and instructions that will get you to the finishing line. 

If you are spending time investing into your dream, you will need the best support from people that know the industry inside and out. Let’s face it, time is money and we all need more of both ;-)

Nailya, the owner of a fashion studio for over 20 years, has been working with high-end fashion designers for many years and has seen the pitfalls. That is a good thing of course, because we can pass on the information and experiences to you so you can shortcut the journey. 

Being in the industry is a tough road if you don’t know how to navigate garment manufacturing. 

Many brands fail, not because they don’t have what it takes creatively, but because they are struggling with cash flow issues and the unexpected pressure the manufacturing of the garments can bring.

We are on a mission to help you with that and will do our utmost to bring you all the support you’ll need and we can’t wait to see your designs in shops around the world. 

Lots of love from the Fashion Production Academy Team!

Here a little peek into Nailya's studio ;-)

The studio was founded in 2003 by Nailya Belkacemi as a one-woman operation and we’ve grown into a dedicated creative team of machinists and pattern cutters. People who, just like you, understand and love the fashion industry.

What The Fashion Production Academy Is About

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.”

― Edward Everett Hale

Making a difference

We believe giving back never goes out of style.

We love and cherish our connection to Global Angels, supporting them by giving time and funds to projects.  Amongst other things, Global Angels are helping women to build their own business by providing loans for sewing machines which helps provide for their families. This charity is transforming disadvantaged communities around the world to transform sustainably. They are building an effective response to provide the most vulnerable communities with resources and tools to thrive. 

We are committed to reinvesting a portion of our annual earnings back into these communities.

My Mission

We are uniquely placed in this exciting industry. Rather than just giving theoretical advice we are a company with over 20 years of actual experience under our belt, so nothing you might face is going to be a big surprise to us.

We see that as an opportunity: we're excited to simplify the journey from design to manufacturing for everyone through our education and community.

We will equip you via our courses with the best possible information you need to fast-track your journey and we will give you extra support, should you need it, via our tailor made 1-2-1 mentoring packages.

Whatever path you choose with us, we will give our very best to see you succeed.
