This initiative provides students with a unique chance to actively participate in some of the world's premier international fashion shows and engage in valuable internships with esteemed designers. This exposure immerses them in the dynamic and ever-evolving international fashion landscape. Additionally, students partake in exclusive excursions and tours, enhancing their understanding of the global fashion industry.
