Fashion is an economic, social and artistic phenomenon, which does not only respond and reflects current events, but also predicts future.
Preparation of highly qualified specialists for this industry is not an easy task.
Traditionally the lecture by a regular guest of the festival – ambitious and charismatic Olha Kalashnykova – took place at Kyiv Fashion!
This time the expert held an online lecture dedicated to the topic “New generation of designers and entrepreneurs in fashion industry – methods of training”.
Olha is a real expert in this topic since she is associate professor of the Costume Design Department of Saint Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design and head of MBA program Fashion Industries & Luxury Goods of a Paris-based Institute Mod’Art International in Saint-Petersburg.
Firstly, Mrs Kalashnykova expressed her opinion regarding online studying. She is strongly against a full switch to such a type of studying, but on the other hand, she realizes that this is our current realities.
As for a new generation which is educated to become a fashion specialist, they are incredibly motivated, active and creative young people. They have no stereotypes, are free in their opinion, ready for experiments and making their own decisions.
Education in fashion sphere is mostly provided by private educational institutions. It is vital to know a foreign language (English), another foreign language (French, etc.) will be a bonus. After getting a degree in your country Olha suggests continuing studies abroad. It will broaden the outlook and provide more opportunities. At the seminar methods of preparation of designers and entrepreneurs were discussed and the achieved results were demonstrated.
