The Designer’s Class onboards Gauri Khan to launch foundational course in interior design as one of it’s instructors
The Designer’s Class™ (www.thedesignersclass.com), India’s leading and one-of-its kind holistic e-learning platform that focuses on different verticals of design, today announced its partnership with Gauri Khan for a foundational course in interior design. The video module is focused on millions across India to get them started in the journey to land millions of job opportunities in the field. As per industry reports, currently interior design industry has more than 1 lakhs of job opportunities available. The module helps students learn fundamentals of interior design (residential and commercial). Gauri, who has designed the homes of some of the most celebrated names in bollywood and india will also share secrets that helped her become a designer to reckon with in India & beyond.
In her comments, Gauri Khan, said,”The thought of helping a new breed of up-and-coming designers connect to the wondrous world of interior design brings immense joy to me. As a self-taught designer myself, I strongly believe in breaking barriers of tradition and adopting a more open educational model. Art and design should be available to be consumed by all and not just a selected few. Most importantly, I can’t wait to share my own ‘secret’ ingredients that will help them elevate every space from quaint to luxurious.”
Commenting on the partnership and the course’s relevance, Samarth Bajaj, Co-founder & CEO, The Designer’s Class, said,“One of the data points that has been coming repeatedly to us is that interior design is taking off big in Tier 2 and 3 cities of India and is no longer the preserve of the big cities where its mature and well entrenched. But the number of options available to potential aspirants looking to enter the field is less or often restrictive as it involves relocating and higher costs. It also leaves out a huge and highly relevant audience of educated women at home who can learn this quickly from their homes itself. Gauri Khan is more than what we could have asked for– she is self-made, she has done amazing projects in such a short time to be where she is today and her name sure rings a bell in India and beyond. Am really greatful for her agreeing quickly and spending time to get the module right and interesting for the students.”
