5-day social media course launched in Dubai

Sawwad Fashion reveals course covering topics such as content creation, image editing and fashion photography and styling

5-day social media course launched in Dubai

Sawwad Fashion has collaborated with FAD Institute of Luxury Fashion and Style Dubai to launch the first social media course in Dubai with a focus on brand development and personal image and style.

The 5-day Social Media Image Development course, which will take place from April 22-26 at FAD Dubai Campus, aims to help individuals develop their social media profile by building a strong brand and personal online presence.

While applicants must be over the age of 16 to participate, no prior work experience is not mandatory, though working professionals are welcome to apply.

Minimum academic requirements include O Levels or Equivalent, and graduates in any field.

Course modules include content creation, image editing, fashion photography as well as tips for styling, engagement and countering cyber-bullying.

Sawwad, which comes from the Arabic word ‘darkness’, was launched by fashion designer Salma Awwad, who has over 10 years of experience in the luxury market, including with brands such as Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Alexander Wang and Narciso Rodriguez.

Her firm specialises in creating, manufacturing and retailing high-end women’s jackets and style statement t-shirts, which are 100% locally made in the UAE.
