Cairo – November 9, 2020 – Press Release
The pandemic has made us all take a deeper look into our lives and how we are investing our time, whether it’s a hobby we wanted to practice or a dream project we wanted to work on. We also at Fustany had the same opportunity to reflect and work on our dream project which is helping our users reach their potential and learn something new every day.
This is where the idea of Fenun.me came to life, an ed-tech platform for all types of art courses, from fashion design, styling, painting, photography and much more, giving our users the opportunity to pick from a wide variety of courses and develop their skills or learn something new within a short period of time.
Amira Azzouz Founder & Editor in Chief of Fustany.com said, “our aim in providing online courses is to help people realize their passion & work on developing their skills whilst keeping up with today’s fast pace & the social changes around us. The material is presented by creative trainers who have a passion for the art they provide, such as our passion for providing continuous support to our followers, which encouraged us to launch the platform, and I take this opportunity to thank all the members of the Fustany team who participated in the Fenun project, whose dedication was the reason for the project to see the light during the year 2020, despite the difficulties we faced in implementation, as this was in line with the beginning of the Corona pandemic.”
Amira concluded saying, “We look forward to providing a different and enriching educational experience for all of our followers. We have a selection of the best coaches available.” You’ll be learning from the best in each field, Abdallah.sabry (portrait photography), Amna El Shandaweely (fashion design course), Clair Seffeen (how to build your own fashion brand) and Hala ELSharouny (painting and drawing), the courses include both a theoretical and practical part and are delivered through a mix of pre-recorded videos, presentations, tasks, quizzes and certifications upon completion. You can start at any time, from anywhere at your own pace, the courses do not have any requirements except for an open mind and eagerness to learn. All courses have 3-months access.
Amira concluded with a mini brief about the trainers “At Fenun we’ve worked with a wide range of instructors who are considered the top within their industries, such as Clair Seffeen who has over 20 years of experience in the fashion industry and worked with the likes of Bloomingdale’s Dubai, Harvey Nichols Kuwait, Burberry, Balenciaga, Kenzo and Jimmy Choo.
