How Skillinabox transformed my Fashion Designing dreams into reality

Hello,I’m Sanjana Singh and I hail from a modest middle-class family. My father is a supervisor at a cement factory, and my mother, an entrepreneur running a boutique from home, instilled in me the values of hard work and determination. Growing up with three sisters and a brother, my family faced financial challenges, yet my parents always strived to fulfill their children's aspirations.

A Spark of Creativity

My fascination with fashion designing sparked when I observed my mother's creative process. Watching her design and sewing clothes my curiosity increased, and I began experimenting with creating garments for myself. Learning the basics of tailoring from my mother, my interest in fashion designing grew and inspired me to get formal education in this field. 


Discovering Skillinabox: A Turning Point

 In August 2023, I stumbled upon Skillinabox, an online platform offering advanced courses in fashion designing. Despite having a foundational knowledge from my mother, I was eager to develop deeper into the intricacies of the craft.


Trusting the Process

When I first heard about Skillinabox, I was afraid that it might be a scam and wondered if I could really learn anything from an online course. I had a lot of doubts and questions in my mind. But then, my counselor explained to me how the classes would be conducted, who the trainers would be, and even assured me that they would teach me everything step by step, like how to thread a needle how to sew they taught every little detail. Even when I first attended class, I didn't understand much. So, quickly I  asked for my live class session and I joined a live session where all my questions were answered. Every week, there was a special live session where they taught us things directly. And one very important part of the course was learning about social media.

Leveraging Social Media: A Crucial Skill

For fashion designers, being active on social media is crucial. This really helped me during my course because it helped me start making money. I made an Instagram account and posted pictures of the outfits I made. Soon, I started getting orders. It felt like this course not only taught us skills but also helped us earn money. The platform’s comprehensive curriculum, focusing on techniques like tie and dye, embroidery, illustration, garment construction, and draping, captured my attention.

Embarking on the Skillinabox Course: A Transformative Experience

Enrolling in SkillinaBox advanced fashion designing course in September, I embarked on a transformative journey. Equipped with newfound skills and knowledge, I've not only enhanced my craftsmanship but also decided to establish my own boutique. Despite my locality's limited enthusiasm for fashion design, My entrepreneurial spirit led me to pursue my passion.


Gaining Practical Experience: Internships and Fashion Shows

Besides taking the course, I also participated in fashion shows where I presented my own designs. It was tough, but I kept working hard. Eventually, all that effort paid off, and I finally  succeeded and made a name for myself.

After completing my fashion designing course, I aimed to gain practical experience through an internship. Approaching Skillinabox for an opportunity, I underwent an interview and secured an internship position. Today, I thrive under their mentorship, grateful for the platform’s support in honing my skills and realizing my potential.
