Orana is a private Fashion Business College located in Ultimo, the education hub of Sydney. We offer both accredited business courses and supplementary short courses relevant to the fashion industry.
We are committed to giving our students practical skills, pathways and connections useful for their future in the fashion industry and beyond. Our students learn from active professionals within the fashion industry in a supportive and personalised environment. We help our students get their foot in the door, connect with like-minded people and fast track their careers.
Orana is an aboriginal word meaning ‘Welcome’ coming from the Wiradjuri people in Central NSW. We named our college so because at Orana Fashion Business College, we have created a warm and welcoming environment where you will feel confident to follow your dreams in the fashion industry. We’re all about a personal experience and one-on-one connections.
meet the director
Orana Fashion Business College was founded by Yvonne Yasserie (nee Wallace), an experienced creative director, fashion stylist and visual merchandiser.
After over 15 years working in the industry, Yvonne noticed a lack of quality in the fashion students entering the industry and looked to make a difference. Since launching in 2013, Orana has provided the next generation with the skills and knowledge to succeed in the fashion industry.
Now, Yvonne successfully runs two businesses, Orana Fashion Business College and Orana Creative. Yvonne is the Director of Orana Fashion Business College and holds the position of Creative Director of Orana Creative; providing Westfield centres nationally with fashion and creative services.
