Fashion Designing is one of the many design courses that has gained popularity among the upcoming student population. We see many students after finishing their 12th, looking for design colleges to pursue various design courses. Even though there are many design and art enthusiasts out there, many are still skeptical about all that the design industry has to offer. Some might feel this is a very unconventional career to pursue as it might have very limited opportunities available. This is not true at all! Every field of study has ample competition, it totally depends on how people go about it. Some take this as a challenge and try to better themselves with every passing day, while some might feel dejected and start looking for easier alternatives. If fashion designing has been something that you’ve always wanted to pursue, then that’s what you should be doing.
Things to Consider Before Joining a Design Course
- Reputation of the design college you are about to join. This will help you in getting better exposure and opportunities.
- Check if the course curriculum matches your needs or what you are looking for in a design course. Ex: If you enjoy fashion writing, some fashion design courses might not include that in their program. So make sure you check that beforehand.
- Look at the student exchange program that a design college has to offer. This will give you an opportunity to know and learn alongside a talented group of people. The experience will also come in handy later in your design career.
- Brand and Company tie-ups that a college has will help students in getting some very good placement options. So try getting in touch with a few alumni of the college, to know how things pan out after finishing a design program.
