The scope of creative careers like Fashion and Designing has seen an upward climb perpetually for the last 15 years but in the wake of the pandemic, it is now at its peak. Irrespective of their age or day job, people wish to enhance a creative skill that they’re passionate about which can enable them to become an entrepreneur or professional within that realm.

To provide industry-standard training and education to aspiring creative professionals across India and engender creative careers, the Hamstech Institute of Creative Education was established by Ajita Reddy who is not only a pioneer in offering creative education to young men and women but also a passionate supporter of aspiring minds. Her vision is seen through Hamstech, where industry-standard training and mentoring helps to provide opportunities and shape careers for many young and driven students to turn them into successful entrepreneurs or professionals in fields like fashion design, interior design, photography and many others.

Crafting New-Age Entrepreneurs
With a vision to break the conventions of mainstream education and guide young minds towards turning their passion into a profession, Hamstech intends to provide premium creative education to all aspiring young minds and encourage them to shape their passion and skill into a successful career. While our society has always conditioned us to believe that mainstream education is the only means of having a career, Hamstech has been shifting this paradigm for nearly 3 decades through a variety of creative courses with a belief that unconventional courses can also lead to brilliant professional prospects for budding designers, photographers, stylists and many more.

“We provide a wide array of courses like Fashion Design, Interior Design, Photography, Graphic Design, Jewellery Design, Fashion Styling, Make-Up Artistry, Baking and Professional Cooking. What makes our
courses unique is the comprehensive yet innovative curriculum, out-of-classroom training through guest lectures, site visits and educational excursions. We have seen our students get placed in some of the most top-drawer brands across 28 years. Today, one has many career choices upon completing their course - starting a home/online business, free-lancing, getting placed in a brand or even starting their own brand!”, states Ajita Reddy, Founder & CEO, Hamstech Institute of Creative Education.

“Hamstech leverages its innovative and contemporary curriculum by ensuring that theoretical training is well supported by practical and industrial exposure”

Equipped with faculties who come with decades of educational and industry experience, Hamstech leverages its innovative and contemporary curriculum by ensuring that theoretical training is well supported by practical and industrial exposure. By conducting site visits, guest lectures, excursions and events to take the class outside the classrooms, Hamstech gives its students the world view of the industry that they wish to carve their niche in, rather than just across the pages of their textbooks. Also, various teaching aids like movies, events, shows, and magazines are fused in the curriculum to introduce the students with the real-life experience of being a designer, photographer, stylist and more.

Affiliated with some of the best Universities of India like State Board of Technical Education and Training, Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University, Shreemati Nathibai Damodar Thackersey Women's University and others, Hamstech have national and international alliances with educational bodies like FDCI, MDIS Singapore, Lasalle and others. The immersion program offered to the students provides them the opportunity of studying in Singapore for 3 weeks along with learning from the esteemed faculty, interacting with international experts and gaining immense exposure. After completing their creative course, the students of Hamstech can choose from the vast portfolio of 200+ placement partners of the university to intern or work full-time.

Ensuring an Industry-Specific Learning Standard
Concerning the evolution of Fashion Design, which has led to
a spectrum of brands ranging from small home-based designer wear labels to an international and global chain of luxury couture brands, Hamstech provides apposite support and guidance to students in accordance with what they aspire to do professionally. “As for infrastructure, we have state-of-the-art laboratories for garment construction, studios for styling and photoshoots of garments, portfolios, and above all, all technical equipment and resources required to ideate, create and showcase a collection.

Our fashion design infrastructure consists of practical, technical and industry-based training paraphernalia. To top it all, we provide a star-studded mentorship through our Celebrity Mentors like Neeta Lulla, a 4-time National Award Winning designer with over 3 decades of experience, Shabnam Gupta, a celebrity interior designer listed as one of the top 10 designers of India by Forbes, Avinash Gowariker, Bollywood’s most renowned photographer and lastly, Kailash Nayak, who is a National Award-winning graphic designer behind the posters of block-buster movies like DevD, Zindagi Na MilegiDobara and many others,” avers Ajita Reddy.

At the onset of expanding its reach to pan-India, starting with other metro cities like Hyderabad, Hamstech plans on cementing its legacy and goodwill by transcending to a university campus where passionate and driven students from all over the country can walk in. Hamstech takes immense pride in the fetes, activities, shows, exhibitions and other events that it organizes exclusively for its students to keep their verve for learning enlivened. “We have a fun sports day called SportsMania-Play the Hamstech Way, special Freshers’ Party for new students and Talent Fests for students across all departments.

In addition to this, we organize unique events to serve as a launch pad for the careers of our students, such as Hamstech Fashion Show to display student designs on the ramp, TheHLabel Exhibition & Sale to give them a chance to sell their collections, InteriYour Exhibition Sale for our Interior Design students to be able to showcase and sell their products, Pixel Perfect photo-exhibition and sale for our aspiring photographers wherein they get to show-case their masterpieces and even watch spectators take them home, and lastly Alankaran Exhibition and Sale for our budding jewellery designers,” signs off Ajita Reddy.
