SCHOOL'S BACK IN SESSION

Grazia Academy is back with a second season featuring fresh new courses and a superstar make-up artist who’s taken time out from the international catwalks to join us

WELCOME TO THE FUTURE OF FASHION in the Middle East. Here’s how you can be a part of it.

Grazia has teamed up with College of Fashion Design in Dubai to offer five bespoke courses to help you make your first move into the fashion and beauty world.

Whether you’re looking for a career change, a side-hustle, or if you think you’re the region’s next big Insta star, the Grazia Academy offers relevant, real-world skills for the digital age, taught by industry experts.

Geared for Grazia girls-on-the-go, these day-long courses take place on Saturdays throughout the summer at CFD’s state-of-the-art HQ in Bay Square, Dubai, under the tutelage of Dean Haifa Al Anjari.

See you in class!
