I knew I wanted to major in communication design right from my first day here at SOD. There’s just something so fascinating about learning and designing mediums that help humans connect with each other. The classes are very engaging and interesting. We have both theoretical and studio classes and there is a wide spectrum of subjects we learn about. There is something to carry forward, from each class and every assignment that we do. It really has been a refreshing experience so far, not to mention the fun bunch of classmates and good faculty that I have!

When it comes to fashion design as my selected discipline, it has been nothing short of an amazing journey, especially because it?s my field of interest. The only drawback so far being not able to attend classes offline and missing quite a few industrial visits because of the pandemic. In these few months of studying fashion as a major, I?ve realised and learned that there?s so much more to fashion than we know of and that really intrigues me, I?ve learnt of things that I never even knew existed! It?s not just the sketching or stitching of clothes, it?s the study and understanding of fabrics and their construction, the history and evolution of costumes, the understanding of sustainability and adhering to it, the form of non verbal communication expressed through fashion, the way it gives identity to people to express themselves, the infusion of technology with textiles, branding and labelling, marketing and so much more. I want to conclude by saying that fashion is not all glamour and with my learnings and experience, I aspire to show that to the world some day, and design for a purpose!

The phrase “Education is the passport to the future” becomes a lot clearer when I enter into our university and see all the aspiring students and classmates that are working hard together to shine in the years ahead. The university is the perfect spot for the development of an individual’s creative thinking and personality development. In the last 2 years, there also have been various fests and clubs that have given us a chance to showcase our talents.
