T Sonam –
I am Sonam, currently in my final year my PGDFC course. The past year and a half at JD have taught me so many things I didn’t know about myself. Having no background in fashion, I was anxious about the challenges and the limitations I would face when applying for this course. But, with the faculties guiding me through my first year, I was certain that I had finally found the right path I would want to take as my future career. Fashion communication has so much to offer in terms of the communication aspect in the fashion industry which is at its peak in the current years. So, by taking up this course, I can say that I am excited and will be looking forward to what the future holds for me.
