CHANGE BEGINS WITH ONE MAN’S DREAM
Rtn. Chandraakant Dalal
A message from our President – “I believe that the students need a little imagination and the willingness to work hard to convert their dreams into success. The father of advertising, David Ogilvy, scrounged around as an apprentice chef and a door-to-door salesman before he entered advertising. The rest, as they say, is history. So don’t worry about skills, they can be learnt. Instead, develop and articulate your imagination which is your unique way of looking at the world. Today, the fashion industry is more fragmented and competitive than ever, paraelly it is also ripe for bold and imaginative ideas that will leave a mark and recognition in the industry. To achieve this, all you need is a confident mind and training which will help you get there too”. – Message from our President
