“I believe that the students need a little imagination and the willingness to work hard to convert their dreams into success. The father of advertising, David Ogilvy, scrounged around as an apprentice chef and a door-to-door salesman before he entered advertising. The rest, as they say, is history. So don’t worry about skills, they can be learnt. Instead, develop and articulate your imagination which is your unique way of looking at the world. Today, the fashion industry is more fragmented and competitive than ever. But that also means it is ripe for bold and imaginative ideas that can leave a mark on the industry. All you need is a confident mind and training and you can get there too”. – Message from our President
