Students in the Australian Institute of Creative Design’s 2015 Part-Time Fashion Business course were offered VM jobs after doing such a great job completing their “in-store” Visual Merchandising assignment.
The Associate Buyer at “Stock & Supply”, Nicholas Carter, said “the girls have done such a great job, they are welcome to come back each Friday to work on the front windows”.
Shown above are Part-Time Fashion Business Graduates: Georgia, Bronte and Jordan. The other group of students worked on the front windows at Lifeline Fortitude Valley and they too were offered part-time work as Visual Merchandisers. One of the groups worked at the Akira store, also in Fortitude Valley — it was a privilege for this group to be working at one of Australia’s most famous design house.
The students were asked to find a store to collaborate with, make appointments with Store Managers, co-ordinate any props and materials they needed to make a great front window display.
The Part-Time Fashion Business course for 2016 starts up again in April and it’s clearly a brilliant way to get the practical skills needed to make it in the industry.
