The KSU Strengthens its Fashion Industry Portfolio with a Fashion Academy Programme

Fashion isn’t just about what you wear it’s a narrative that reflects the essence of culture and society. These profound words come from none other than Greta Kukšaitė, a luminary in the realm of fashion journalism, currently making waves at Elle Lithuania. Greta’s expertise extends beyond the glossy pages of magazines; she’s a passionate educator, offering personal fashion training, creative workshops, and collaboration with renowned brands.

Greta’s journey from Kazimieras Simonavičius University (KSU) alumna to a seasoned professional underscores the importance of seizing opportunities and bridging academic learning with real-world experiences. While pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Industries at KSU, Greta recognized the need to leap into the industry headfirst, combining her studies with practical internships and hands-on projects. Today, her portfolio boasts over 400 published articles in esteemed international publications, a testament to her unwavering dedication and talent.

Driven by a vision cultivated since her high school days, Greta is set to return to her alma mater, this time as a mentor. With the support of Kazimieras Simonavičius University, Greta, along with other experts, will inaugurate the “Fashion Academy” on March 7th, extending an invitation to upper secondary school pupils and students passionate about shaping their futures in the fashion industry. This program, running until April 25th, promises an enriching experience for all participants, whether their aspirations lie in creative design, marketing, business, or technology.

The Fashion Academy isn’t just another educational venture; it’s a gateway to invaluable insights and career opportunities. Joining Greta are nine distinguished professionals, each a luminary in their respective fields.
