Great course, well designed and thought through. I found all of the modules very interesting and the course covers a wide variety of aspects in fashion design. It’s really interesting listening to the videos, doing the quizzes and reading the module notes. Overall, it’s an extremely enjoyable and interesting course, giving a great insight into the world of fashion, the different career paths there are and how Manish Malhotra started and runs his business, which I’ve found fascinating and inspiring. It has inspired me to be creative and broaden my mind in different areas, for example the costume design module was interesting and an area I didn’t know much about. I thoroughly enjoyed working on each assignment. I love that you can do the course from any smart device over 12 months, and when I needed to extend the course further, the course tutors were very understanding about it. Would highly recommend this course!
