Step one.

If you’ve ever toyed with the idea of working in design but never had the courage to make the jump, you may want to keep reading.

This weekend, Whitehouse Institute of Design will be holding open days across both its Melbourne and Sydney campuses. If you’re about to finish high school or just intrigued by the prospect of working in creative industries, then you should probably make room in your schedule.

The day will give prospective students and curious types the chance to explore the Institute’s facilities, and get the low down on its Bachelor of Design course. 

The degree offers the option to specialise in Creative Direction & Styling, Fashion Design or Interior Design; each prepares students to work across multiple creative fields.

The Creative Direction & Styling course is a unique pathway that allows students to mix the study of fashion, interior, product and event styling.

For a more specific approach, the Fashion Design course covers all areas of fashion design from illustration and digital design to patternmaking, business and art. 

If interiors are more your thing, the Interior Design course focuses on residential, office, furniture, retail and community-based design. It prepares students for the ever-changing nature of the industry.

What better way to spend your weekend than by prepping yourself for the future? If you’re keen, both the Melbourne and Sydney campuses will open their doors from 10am on Friday and Saturday.
