Esmod Dubai, the leading fashion school in the region, has announced that it will be offering several short fashion-related courses at The Address hotel Dubai Mall between October 7 and November 15, 2010, to cater to aspiring fashionistas who cannot enroll for long term courses at the school due to time constraints.
The short courses that Esmod Dubai will offer include: вЂHow to launch your own fashion brandвЂ™, вЂFashion marketing in the Middle EastвЂ™, вЂHow to identify and manage a niche marketвЂ™, вЂOnline fashion marketingвЂ™ вЂHow to establish a successful retail operationвЂ™, вЂFashion and perfume brand marketing integrationвЂ™, вЂHow to create a unique selling propositionвЂ™, вЂHow to select, win and manage a franchiseвЂ™, вЂModern techniques of visual merchandisingвЂ™, вЂPreview haute couture & ready-to-wear international collectionsвЂ™, вЂDiscovering oriental & French perfume heritageвЂ™ and вЂFashion designвЂ™. The duration of these courses range between one and four days, and is open to students over 18 years of age, with no prior qualification required for most courses.
Commenting on the new short courses, Tamara Hostal, Director and Founder of Esmod Dubai, said, вЂњOver the last few months we have received several enquiries and requests from people about the various courses we offer, with many expressing a desire to attend courses with a duration of two to three days. We understand that not everyone will have the time to attend the full time courses offered on campus. Accordingly we are introducing these set of short courses at a convenient location, which we believe will allow more people to attend and benefit from Esmod DubaiвЂ™s high-quality fashion training expertise.вЂќ
вЂњThe course topics have been selected after a thorough analysis of current trends in the fashion industry and each course will provide a comprehensive understanding of the subject, giving both international and local perspectives,вЂќ she added.
Meanwhile, Esmod Dubai has also announced the commencement of classes for the new batch of the 3-year program, with several students having an interesting profile in design coming in from various countries. The school is also receiving students keen on attending the short duration workshops in fashion and make-up. These workshops will also be conducted by the highly experienced faculty of the school.
