My name is Yasmine, I am 20 years old and from Lebanon. The courses I completed were: How to Create a Brand, Product Design, and Image Consultant and Personal Shopper.

I chose these three courses because I am interested in pursuing a career in the fashion industry, particularly in launching my own brand down the line. In learning how to create a brand, I learned the essential steps on what it takes to write a business proposal, the framework for a marketing strategy, communication practices, the design process, and how to create consumer value. Prior to this course, I was lost on where to start in the creation of my fashion brand, and now I have a focused and clear direction on what steps to take, and how to go about taking them. The Image Consultant and Personal Shopper course allowed me to delve deeper into the world of fashion and luxury, especially in understanding color theory, body types, and visagism.  Lastly, the Product Design course gave me insight into the software and technical skills required to be successful in the industry, and explored the different materials, fabrics, designs, and sketches possible in production.

ELLE Education is important to achieve professional goals because it provides its students with lectures and knowledge from industry experts. Other than that, the nature of the courses, especially the certificate bundles, allows students to develop expertise in the subject they are studying. The courses are also not typically offered at university, and take about three months to complete, which is ideal, especially doing alongside your university studies.

The best part of studying at ELLE education was the access to the tutors and the lecturers, which is not common in short courses. We have a forum where we can speak to them, as well as the possibility of live zoom meetings. This makes it more personal, and we feel helped along every step of the way.
