Hyderabad: Confining fashion designing to modeling profession is not correct. In fact both are separate fields. Fashion designing deals with garments and its related skills. On the other hand, modeling involves promotion of the new designs.
Elaborating her point, Samana Hussaini, Chairperson, Samana College of Design Studies (SCDS), said that fashion designing course is helpful in gaining employment and also to empower of people, especially women.
Adding to her talk, she said instead of focussing only on marrying off their daughters parents should think about developing their career.
Hussaini is Chairperson of the Samana College of Design Studies (SCDS), Hyderabad. She was talking to students and staff on Thursday on the occasion of launching of fashion designing and interior designing courses at Maulana Azad National Urdu University.
Prof Syed Ainul Hasan, Vice-Chancellor, inaugurated the programme.
MANUU is offering a certificate course of one semester in Fashion & Interior designing and a diploma course of two semesters.
Both these courses have been started under the Memorandum of Understanding signed between MANUU and Samana College in August.
Samana said that diploma students of SCDS are performing much better than postgraduate students in various other subjects.
