Anandie Klaasen studied fashion design at the Spero Villioti Design Academy. Students are trained by top fashion designer, Spero Villioti, as well as other highly skilled professionals. They are given real-world fashion experience supervising their designs through each phase to completion. Students also have unparalleled opportunities to develop their own portfolios.

Anandie displayed her graduation portfolio at Vodaworld at the end of last year and now plans to go on her own, ultimately opening a fashion design school for underprivileged people. Anandie heard about the fashion plight of persons with disabilities, how they struggle to find clothes to fit their individual body types, from Therina Wentzel, of the NCPPDSA, and met with a couple of ladies who were desperate to find stylish, properly fitting corporate and casual wear.
