    "As an ESMOD Dubai student, I have explored my vision as a designer, an artist and an individual. Offering complete knowledge about designing and pattern making, the program helps to be imaginative and come up with original ideas. After gaining international exposure by interning for the coveted Dutch Creator designer Iris Van Herpen in Amsterdam and Paris, I started my own Fashion House in Deira called ‘Le Trousseau’."

    “ESMOD Dubai was a great start for me, especially being one of the first graduates – I got the right exposure that I needed at the time. It was a little tough being thrown in the deep end without seniors to look up to, but it eventually paid off. I believe I have graduated getting the maximum knowledge that I could in fashion design and pattern making.” Lubna Al Zakwani Endemagé

But above all technicality, I feel that it has allowed me to be creative to the fullest and reveal my sense of individualism. Today, I have my own Fashion House on Jumeirah Beach Road and I am glad to say that I am an accomplished Designer running a successful business."
