Have you always dreamed about a career in the fashion industry but you didn’t know where to begin? Industry professional and founder of The Fashion Institute, Sarah Stavrow, started out with a dream and it’s now her passion to provide training for those who want to kick start their career in the fashion industry.
The Fashion Institute is a tertiary ‘fashion business’ college, which offers students the skills and support to pursue their dream job in the fashion industry. The course offers students the flexibility to study, work and undertake workplace industry training at their own pace.
Originally from a small country town, Sarah moved to Sydney and studied Business Marketing and PR but says it was only through hard work and making a lot of valuable contacts that she gained success in the industry as a publicist for high profile brands such as Bonds, Seafolly, General Pants, Country Road, Berlei, Ella Bache, Sunsilk and Miss Louise, stating that “This college is exactly what I wished for when I was starting out myself!”
The Fashion Institute course is part-time, with subjects broken down into three modules – Business, Design and Industry.
Business Modules include: Magazines, Styling, PR, Marketing Management, Visual Merchandising, Buying, Journalism, Online magazines/blogging, Model Management, Photography, Selling & Customer Relations, Retail Management, Financial Fundamentals, How to Start your Own Business and Creative Project Management.
Design Modules include: Pattern Making, History of Fashion Design, Understanding Materials and Textiles, Illustration, Garment Construction (Personal Development Modules), Interview Skills, Personal Grooming, Personal Styling, Assertive Communication and Computer Skills.
And Industry Modules mean that students will be able to take place in workplace training, internships and excursions, and will also be privy to workshops from influential guest speakers from brands such as Ksubi, Sass & Bide, Bec & Bridge, Ellery, Bonds and Wayne Cooper.
“Through hard work and making a lot of great contacts I’ve been successful and I want to share that with upcoming fashionistas,” explains Sarah. To find out more about The Fashion Institute, visit www.TheFashionInstitute.com.au.
