In September I started the Fashion Design program by Edexcel through CAPITAL in Dubai. I am a Barrister in Criminal Law & Family Law by profession and worked as one for over ten years but I decided that I wanted to do something totally different for a while. I like fashion so I thought I had found the perfect course. Now, months later, I have just submitted my last assignment and if I look back I really think it was the perfect course. The lessons are informal and well taught where nobody needs to be afraid to ask any” ... stupid “questions. This course is a highly professional course where submissions and homework are important. That is what makes this course so special: whereas fashion is a very “airy” subject but in this course you really actually have to achieve something to receive that qualification. It has value! In my view it is a very good preparation for the competitive world of fashion in general. This was a course really worthwhile and I can recommend it to anybody with an interest in fashion! (and wants to work hard). Thank you very much Edexcel, CAPITAL and our faculty.
