Aika Azuma

Graduate. Fashion certificate. 2017.

Yes, LATTC draws students from around the world. Take Aika Azuma. She is from Japan.  She always knew she had a passion for fashion but when she attended FIDM, she did not find the education environment she was seeking. In addition, the school was very expensive for her.

She did some investigating and found LA Trade Tech online. She stopped by campus and visited with a counselor, who convinced her that this school was the best educational value in town. Even though she was learning English, and transferred, she found exactly what she was looking for at LATTC. She excelled in the program and went step-by-step through every class on her way to a certificate. Straight A’s throughout her entire career.

She graduated in 2017, and immediately qualified for a fashion internship available to students who complete. She now has worked for Love and Lemons where she cut patterns, independent designer Adolfo Sanchez, where she was asked to sew garments, and she also worked for Calia Lahay where she has worked on alterations and tailoring.

She also loves American movies and is setting her sights on work in costuming. No doubt her name will turn up in the credits very soon.

This is another example of student success.
