Testimonials

Vilma Pagirė

Designer of UAB “Eustilija”, working with such brands as “Introstyle” and “Introstyle Premium”, as well as developing her own brand “VP Code”

 

Working in the company as a designer and creating my brand “VP Code”, I highly appreciate technological knowledge and analytical thinking, acquired during the studies. I believe that in order to achieve success in the clothing industry we have to combine creativity, engineering and entrepreneurship. Having the necessary technological knowledge base, I know that I can create design successfully.
People make studies highly valuable. I was very fortunate that I met exceptionally talented, professional and, most importantly, good-natured people during the studies. It is invaluable experience. Studies are like a kind of club, where people support each other. Pursuing my professional career, I met many specialists who have graduated from the KTU. The funniest thing is that university always brings us together, helps us to communicate, and opens doors to new opportunities
