The Designer’s Class (http://www.thedesignersclass.com), an e-learning platform with focus on design, of Mumbai-based Edutechtionalists India Pvt. Ltd. (esb 2021) by serial entrepreneurs Samarth Bajaj and Adeesh Nahar with Vishal Bajaj, a technopreneur, have announced its partnership with Gauri Khan, wife of Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh 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. 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.
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.”
