What makes WC training school Unique from other fashion school?
At WC training school we ensure that each student is given maximum attention and is allowed to think and work independent of any of their teachers. WC Manual is very broad and covers all the topic taught during the training period, so students can always refer to it years after the training. WC trainees are allowed to experiment and try out new methods and ideas which is supervised by their teachers. At the completion of the training section, a fashion show is organised for WC trainees where they can showoff the designs and garments they have been able to produce.
What we require from WC trainees?
To Excel at WC Training School, individuals must be hard-working, dedicated and determined to learn. Students must be punctual, time conscious and submit their classwork’s and assignments on the due date.
