think you have what it takes to be suc­cess­ful in this field, you can take up a train­ing course in fash­ion de­sign, fash­ion styling, im­age con­sult­ing or fash­ion com­mu­ni­ca­tion. There are limited cour­ses in fash­ion styling, but most fash­ion de­sign and fash­ion com­mu­ni­ca­tion pro­grammes have in­cor­po­rated styling into their course. Most fash­ion de­sign and com­mu­ni­ca­tion cour­ses in­clude train­ing in de­sign, ac­ces­sories, cos­tumes, pho­tog­ra­phy, hairstyle, makeup, and this can help you make an en­try into this pro­fes­sion. Ma­jor fash­ion in­sti­tutes such as National In­sti­tute of Fash­ion Tech­nol­ogy (NIFT) and Pearl Acad­emy of Fash­ion, New Delhi and other fash­ion in­sti­tutes of­fer th­ese cour­ses. Get­ting into such a course does not re­quire coach­ing. It’s all about your own aes­thetic sense, a keen eye for clothes, colours and de­signs, as well as a broad knowl­edge of fash­ion in­dus­try trends. A good way to kick start your ca­reer is by as­sist­ing a se­nior stylist, even if you do not get paid. The ex­pe­ri­ence will give you the con­fi­dence to take up good as­sign­ments and will help you start out on your own. I have passed Class 12 this year with 75% (science stream). I feel de­mo­ti­vated as I have not se­cured ad­mis­sion to a BTech pro­gramme in any govern­ment col­lege. Due to fi­nan­cial rea­sons, I can­not skip a year as well, so I plan to ap­ply to some col­leges. I do not mind tak­ing up any other course through dis­tance ed­u­ca­tion. Please guide me.
