Remarks :

Working at any studio before used to be a dream that can not be achieved but after pursuing the course from this college, I have gained immense confidence and knowledge to work in the industry side by side with the influential and named people of fashion industry. The sense of achievement is very difficult to explain and express to anyone.

I got very much intrigued by the people who took our interview during the admission process. The task they give was to show us our thinking process and how they would improve it in a better way. They gave us their piece of mind and it was like I want to learn more about it. The passion of joining the course gets doubled or tripled this way.
