People argue that your experience is a key factor in the fashion world. That is very true but so is a qualification in your chosen field of a career. Like it or not your qualification can take you where your experience may never take you and vice versa.
Yes! Experience matters in fashion designing but with where the world is going one needs a professional qualification just to add to the experience. As the saying goes ‘you never know.’
1. In today’s world your qualification matters
A lot of people argue that your experience is a key factor in the fashion world. That is very true but so is a qualification in your chosen field of a career. Like it or not your qualification can take you where your experience may never take you and vice versa. So simply make sure you have the skills but also get a documented qualification for it.
2. It gives you an advantage over your peers
Can you imagine having clients who need a business plan for a huge fashion contract? If you do not have the technical know-how you will have to pay a huge sum to someone to do it for you or forfeit the business. At the School of Fashion & Design (SFD) at BlueCrest College you do not only learn to sew, you also learn to be an all-round entrepreneur.
3. The fashion industry is dynamic
Some time back it was a fashion blunder to wear a green blouse on a pink trouser but today we call it ‘colour blocking’. Fashion is evolving by the day, you need to keep yourself updated through education.
4. To acquire a holistic knowledge in designing
Designing is not all about just cutting fabrics. One must understand how the fashion world has evolved. This influences the way you even operate in the industry. Fashion designing is not the only job opportunity in the fashion world. At BlueCrest SFD you are introduced to all the available job opportunities in the fashion world. You will be guided to make a decision and follow your own path.
5. Who wouldn’t prefer an educated designer?
Most clients would prefer an educated designer who can tell them what to wear to which event and how to even carry themselves. A designer who can discuss national issues with you and make you feel comfortable when you go to pick your dresses. Only BlueCrest SFD teaches you to be the best fashion designer in Ghana.
