Sowmya Batch of 2009 – JD Institute of Fashion Technology
Sowmya Batch of 2009, ‘Encouraging us to be more independent and the freedom to think and act on our own. This, I would say, is the best thing I felt about JD. Here, our interests were given priority. The point is to do what we like and to give
our best to it.
Over the past ten years, my area of expertise is Visual Communication (Visual merchandising). This job arrived accidentally, as soon as I completed my Diploma in fashion Designing. I began as an Executive, Visual Merchandiser at Weekender because the profile was interesting, didn’t take too much time for me to adapt, and offered me a satisfying feeling. Today I am working for Samsung as a Manager & have worked with companies like Arvind Brands (Flying Machine), Madura Garments (Van Heusen), Future group (Bangalore central & Big Bazaar) & Mahindra Retail (Mom & me). Today being an achiever with extensive & successful experience in the visual merchandising industry with large multi-channel retail fashion chains, I’m seeking challenging roles in the area of retail management, store management & customer experience. I strongly believe in always forging ahead and taking others along with you!”
Unlike other MBA/ Engineer graduates, I liked crayons & HB pencils, must say I loved all of my fashion design classes because I knew that was what I wanted to do and all those classes helped me to build my skills… overall it was a great experience at JD & proud to be a “JDIAN.”
