UK's Most Prestigious Fashion and Interior Design Colleges Return to the Middle East
UAE, 6th March 2012 - Two of the world's best known and prestigious UK based fashion and interior design colleges, London College of Fashion (LCF) and Chelsea College of Art and Design (Chelsea), are returning to the Middle East between the 17th - 31st May 2012 to hold another series of Short Courses in response to the overwhelming demand following the successful programmes already held in Dubai.
LCF will be hosting a total of 14 courses with Chelsea offering eight in total. For the first time the former will have a special seminar 'Your Future in Fashion' that will act as a comprehensive introduction to the fashion industry allowing attendees, aged 16 and over, to explore the different facets of fashion to get a better idea of where to start a career in this competitive environment. Also, in response to past students feedback LCF will also offer the Special Occasion Makeup course, which will be taught by international celebrity makeup artist Lucy Wearing, who has worked with some of the world's top magazines including Vogue and Elle as well as celebrities including singer Ellie Goulding.
Being held at the Pullman Dubai, Mall of the Emirates, the courses have been designed for those seeking international standards of tuition from lecturers who will be travelling from the UK to teach the courses.
"The Middle East is fast becoming a hub for design. Our first programme of short courses were a huge success and it was encouraging to see how many people from such diverse backgrounds were interested in interior design. We had students who were taking on smaller personal projects within their homes and offices right the way through to seasoned industry professionals who were looking to further improve their knowledge and refresh their skills.
LCF has held four short course programmes in the Middle East since 2010 due to the increased demand from both local and expat residents.
"Each time we come back to the Middle East we try to offer an evolved portfolio of courses to offer even more to potential as well as past students to keep the subjects relevant and useful. The fashion industry has so many elements to it we want to ensure that we cover as many of the key topics as possible and these include everything from fashion buying and design to make up and fashion cultural studies," said Linda Roberts, Senior Business Manger, London College of Fashion.
High profile tutors for LCF include designer Richard Sorger, whose collection is worn by stars like Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford and Kate Beckinsale, and international bestselling author of 'How to Set up & Run a Fashion Label,' Toby Meadows.
