We often hear, passion foresees no boundaries. But we also believe that the vast industry of fashion foresees no boundaries either!
FAD Fashion Business student Diya Udeshi was recently placed with the luxury e-commerce website Ounass, as a Buyer - Womenswear ! Diya landed this dream job through FAD’s industry led learning environment supporting students with industry mentors, internships & placements.
Originally from Sri Lanka, Diya holds a degree in Economics and was introduced to the Fashion industry through a friend. She instantly realised a connect with the industry and moved to work as a Junior Buyer with Mango.
With an urge to traverse more of the industry, Diya joined FAD Dubai for the Fashion Business and Entrepreneurship programme.
Pondering upon her course at FAD, Diya says, ”It was an incredible experience. FAD has an amazing course run including PR, Fashion Marketing, Fashion Journalism, Fashion Business Management, Buying & Merchandising. I am so glad I opted for this course at FAD.”
When asked her about her favourite module during the course she instantly responded, ”Surprisingly it was Fashion Journalism! We were allotted a group assignment wherein the class was divided into groups of 10 students, to create a Fashion Magazine from scratch. I took on the role of editor, and we enjoyed every bit of it which worked out as an ice breaker for us.”
Continuing on to yet another of her favourite modules - Fashion Buying, Diya recalls, ”I felt that Mr. Wael (FAD Mentor - Fashion Buying) was speaking the same language that I have worked on all these years, it was so easily understandable making me realise this is what I am best at”. Mr. Wael not only recognised her potential but went on to refer her for a job at Ounass through his connections in the Industry.
We congratulate Diya Udeshi on commencing this stirring journey with Ounass and we are extremely proud her perseverance and progress.
