Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend taking this course for a variety of reasons. My professor was excellent at explaining concepts and ideas and making it easy to learn the business of fashion through branding. The course was easy to follow along with during lecture, reading, and with projects. Make sure to show up to lectures for clicker points and make sure you take the projects seriously because they are worth most of your grade.
The highlights of the course were the big group project at the end where you and three other group members construct your own brand. You come up with the idea, a presentation, photoshop an advertisement for it, and come up with the costs and benefits to your brand. I learned so much that had to do with fashion business and branding. Truly going into depth in the fashion industry can open your eyes to new challenges and teach you how to face them.

Advice for students:
I would definitely recommend that a student planning to take this course should do the reading from the book for the modules, go to every lecture, take good notes on your computer, and to take group projects seriously.
