Everyone likes to hear a good success story, especially one that involves an individual going through a learning curve in life that eventually ends up changing their life for the better within a short period of time and opening up a world of opportunity and prospects for them. This exact sentiment is one that has been experienced by many students who graduated from the Singer Fashion Academy after pursuing courses related to fashion and dress-making and have gone on to forge successful careers and prospering businesses after having had learned a craft that enables them to practice their passions and forge a solid career out of it.

Recently, a young lady who had completed two courses from the Singer Fashion Academy had gone on to launch her own dress-making outlet in Tangalle, where she hailed from. Launched as ‘Sashi Fashion Shell,’ she embarked on an entrepreneurial journey following her graduation from the Singer Fashion Academy. Owner and Dressmaker at Sashi Fashion Shell, Sashini Thilakshika Punchipatabandi spoke with us and shared her story on how she successfully trudged through challenging territories when it came to the subject of fashion. She explained how the Singer Fashion Academy and her lecturers had assisted her throughout her learning process with the academy to not only learn new things but to also boost their confidence and balance work with studies together.
