The Department of Public Relations and Advertising at Eastern Mediterranean University has successfully hosted a maiden workshop on fashion design for its students. The workshop was convened on December 19 2018 between 11:30 and 13:00 at the Communication Faculty’s purple hall, with EMU graduate Acelya Ulucay who made a presentation on different trends in modern fashion design and marketing. A graduate from the Public Relations and Advertising department, Acelya Ulucay is a bubbling fashion design and marketing expert who currently operates an online shop. The workshop aimed at inspiring students in the Public Relations and Advertising department to explore career opportunities in fashion design and marketing, especially in the digital media age.
In her exhibition, Ulucay took the participants through the process of fashion design; from the conception of new designs to branding, customers’ identification, promotion and marketing. Moreover, Ulucay showcased some of her products while urging students with keen interest in exploring the trends in fashion design advertising and promotion, to join her training school, where they can improve on their skills.
On their part, participants expressed delight over the department’s thoughtfulness to convene the workshop, while hoping to attend and gain more inspirations in the future. At the end of the event, Acelya Ulucay was honoured with a plaque from the Public Relations and Advertising Department.
