I was waking early that morning to draft my articles for the day, I wanted to look deeper into the mind of the creative students who are enrolled in various programmes such as fine arts, performing arts, animation or fashion designing. I was enthralled and curious to know the answer to “Is Fashion Designing a good career?” I interacted with the faculty and students to know about the various perks of being a part of this luxurious industry. I got to chat with the entire Fashion Design department and here are some interesting facts and reasons why one should be a part of this cutting-edge, shaggy and vibrantly dyed business.
The more than extra fringe benefits
Worrying about health insurance, security deposits, company cars or subsidized meals? You can stop now! The best part of being in this industry is that you get to work your creative brain parts and everything else is taken care of. Your hard work and skills matter. Rest everything is taken care by the company or brand you’re working for.
The freebies and gifts
When it comes to the occasional shower of gifts, there’s no other industry like Fashion. It’s just another day you’re working for a fashion show, you’ll be welcomed by trendy bags of branded goodies that you used to dream of buying one day. Brands want you to remember them forever. And free things makes them hard to forget!
When you’re a part of the industry, you’re not sitting on an average desk and chair. The office is not of a dull color. Everything from the color of your office lounge to the mug you’ll get your coffee served in, it’s got the glitter and glamour.
