    [SIZE=-1]Think of a career in fashion, and the first thought that comes to mind is fashion designing. ?Oh, I?m not very creative,? you think, and immediately start considering other options. Hold your thoughts for a moment. Fashion is a lot more than just designing. . [/SIZE]


    [SIZE=-1]Fashion communication [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]The power of the brand is fast emerging, and along with it emerges a relatively new and exciting avenue: fashion communication. As international brands enter the Indian market, both Indian and international brands will be fighting for recognition, and it is here that fashion communication professionals come into play. They work on increasing brand awareness, and an awareness of fashion trends. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]NIFT offers a 4 year degree course in fashion communication, and after the course you could get a job as a fashion stylist and organise shoots for fashion magazines, travel abroad and within the country on shoots, attend fashion shows and the like. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]You could also become a fashion writer or correspondent, an event manager, join the advertising industry, or you could get a career in public relations. Public Relations is a career where after a few years experience it is relatively easy to branch out on your own, and once you land a few big clients, you have it made! [/SIZE]


    [SIZE=-1]Should I study fashion to get into the industry? [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]A lot of people simply stumble into the industry without much training. While it was easier for the previous generation to do this, there is much more skilled competition, and a course gives you a competitive advantage. It also helps you make contacts, and contacts help in this industry. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]a degree in fashion makes prospective employers take you more seriously.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]In addition, you will also get an idea of the tremendous scope in the fashion industry. Various international brands that import from India require representatives here, and pay incredible salaries, not to mention ? free clothes! [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]A degree in fashion management, fashion technology, fashion merchandising, can take you a long way. [/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Fashion designer/ Fashion illustrator[/SIZE]
