What makes us different?

We get that new entrepreneurs face a number of hurdles, including navigating complexities of the industry, creating a solid business plan, and finding affordable space to showcase their collections.

Founder Tanesia Camillo-Sheffey has spent the past four years mentoring some of the freshest, vibrant undiscovered designer gems through her fashion production house, The Haute House.

The foundation of Camillo-Sheffey's fashion industry and budiness development mentoring has been based on solid business management practice .Her mentoring has helped new designers build building credible and professional profiles.

It quickly that there was a real need for recent fashion graduates to have a short, intensive - almost bootcamp - foundation in entrepreneurship, business strategy & development, and professional conduct. Looking to upscale her mentoring, Camillo-Sheffey created The Haute House University.
