Celebrity interior designer Gauri Khan joins trailblasing new education disrupter
After gracing countless covers, curating dream homes, and forging a brand synonymous with luxury, Interior designer to the Stars Gauri Khan is all set to disrupt the education space with ‘The Designer’s Class.’
Gauri adds to an exclusive list of Celebrity Mentors and Industry experts on the exciting new platform dedicated to tackling traditional design education head-on. Giving burgeoning designers, both young and old, an all-access opportunity to learn from the very best in their class.
Known names include Masaba Gupta, Rhea Kapoor, Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla, and Tanya Ghavri to name a few.
The course will enable designers of all levels to forge their signature approach to interior design, drawing inspiration from Gauri Khan’s own, immensely successful, journey, as well as learn the fundamentals, best practices and industry insights from the veteran designer herself.
All are captured with unparalleled production values, that anyone can enjoy from a desktop or smartphone.
“The thought of teaching a new breed of up-and-coming designers and helping them 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.” – Gauri Khan
Enrolled students can also expect to learn how to create unique opulent spaces that tell a story, the interplay of colour, texture and material, as well as how to creatively play with lighting. Transforming spaces as intimate as homes through to more commercial projects as well.
Samarth Bajaj, founder of The Designers Class, said: “We are so excited to have Gauri Khan join our immensely talented pool of instructors. She has worked with Ace global brands and masterfully transformed the homes of celebrities, therefore, we firmly believe she comes with an immense pool of experience and knowledge that all our students can definitely benefit from.”
Bajaj adds: “We are proud to have built a premium platform that will add significant value to anyone interested in studying and pursuing design across the globe. Being an online platform, we have the advantage of reaching out to learners across geographical boundaries and our aim is to offer these celebrity driven design master classes to talent in some of the remotest locations of the world, giving them the same experience and opportunities as urban students. As an added bonus, we plan to offer an extensive in person mentorship program as an opportunity to be mentored under the umbrella of our celebrity designers. The opportunity will be open to all ages and applicants from across the globe.”
Gauri Khan’s course launches globally on May 5, 2022.
