Fashion designer Naeem Khan’s big headquarters move from NYC to Miami has been in the works for years, and now one component of the project is moving forward. Part of Khan’s HQ includes a high school devoted to fashion education.

“An immigrant’s dream,” Khan wrote on Instagram. “Miami Dade schools confirms the partnership with Naeem Khan and DASH.”

The 26,000-square-foot school is set to quadruple Miami-Dade’s popular Design and Architecture Senior High (DASH)’s fashion education program, the Miami Herald reports.

The school is slated to open in time for the 2020 school year. It will be located next to Khan’s proposed headquarters and manufacturing facility on the Miami River. Architecture firm Arquitectonica is working on the complex for Khan, who is famous for his bridal line along with dresses worn by the likes of Beyoncé and Michelle Obama.
