Build a Career in Fashion Industry

30 Mar

Fashion designing is all about designing clothes. Any such thing heard is a myth now. Let’s question ourselves. If a girl or a boy looks beautiful or handsome respectively, is it only because of the clothes?

No, it’s not so however even if it is agreed then too, clothes contain too many parameters to suit a specific person which can be the type, colour combination, the way clothes are carried, what accessories are teamed up (if any) and many more minute things.

I am sure we are now on the same page when we say fashion designing is not only designing clothes and it contains a lot other activities too. The base of fashion designing is creativity. The more creative you are, more eye-catching is your design. It’s not easy to make a niche for yourself in fashion designing today. The industry is full of competition which is making the work even harder for the new comers. It’s not a piece of cake to build a career in fashion designing. It not only needs discipline, dedication however a full-fledged knowledge about the fabric, appropriate accessories, designs, attires according to the seasons, colours according to the seasons and the same according to the personalities as well.

This is where WLCI plays an important role in your career of fashion designing. Here, the students are not only given theoretical knowledge but are provided ample practical experience. The faculty are senior professionals with appropriate hands on experience and belong to the industry. Once the theoretical knowledge is given, what is required is the practical knowledge. Not only this, the practical knowledge is given according to both domestic and international market. Appropriate assistance is given to the students for domestic and international fashion shows.

WLCI talks about a career in Fashion

Step into the world of Fashion Designing                                         

Fashion and youth go hand in hand. After all, is there anything more exciting or happening than fashion? You don’t think so, right? Giving in to changing times, fashion institutes have mushroomed across the country and fashion designing courses are much sought after. Young boys and girls with a penchant for style and dressing up make a beeline for a fashion degree from a reputable fashion design institute after their 12th in a bid to make it big in the fashion world.

Getting started in the fashion industry, however, is a rather daunting task. Being a part of it means entering an extremely competitive world where you have to be in the know of rapidly changing trends to woo a demanding clientele who are spoilt for choice.

Irrespective of all the hard work associated with it, a career in fashion attracts creative, bold and experimental youngsters whose love for the fashion industry is complemented by their determination to not just foray into the scene but also leave their distinct mark on it.

One of the best ways to get started is by going in for a fashion internship. Doesn’t matter if you already have a fashion degree, having pursued a fashion designing course – nothing beats real-world experience. An internship will add on to your textbook knowledge and help you hone your skills like nothing else. Besides, you never know something as temporary as an internship could well serve as an extended job interview and land you a permanent position in your dream firm.

For one-of-a-kind inspiration and creativity session, the fashion school mentors take the students out for “Outdoor” class activities. One such recent ‘outdoor’ class activity was the exploration of the “Surajkund” fair. The earthy tones, the desi-motifs and the ethnic feel of the whole outdoor visit left the students wanting for more.

The trip was refreshing and educative at the same time; the students mingled with artisans from different states and culture. Students drew a whole lot of inspiration from the riot of colours and the rich traditional motifs. They sketched the new motifs they found, explored patterns and fabrics, and scrutinized the weaves available at the Surajkund fair.

WLCI Fashion Technology School student’s look forward to more trip like these and the mentors hope the students have made optimum use of explorations of this kind!
