Mariam
Oct 15, 2009 (2812 days ago)

Hi Mariam,

Sorry for the late response, I have been traveling and am now in Tokyo for the Japan Fashion Week. Because of my hectic schedule, I don’t have time to search the site of Tokyo Designer Gakuin for an e-mail address. As it happens, English e-mails are usually ignored anyway.

I suggest that you send a letter or download Skype (free). International phone calls by Skype cost just a few dollars, even if you speak for an hour or so.

I wish you much success!

Hi, Im from Australia.
Thes Stylist course – does that relate to fashion styling as in photoshoots or does it refer to make-up?

Anastasia
May 28, 2010 (2587 days ago)

hey, i also want to going to japen to learning the make up artist , but i just wonder how long for take this course?

angela
May 29, 2010 (2586 days ago)

@Anastasia: The Stylist Course is part of the Tokyo Designer Gakuin’s Fashion Department, so this course is about fashion styling in the usual sense of the term.

@Angela: Tokyo Designer Gakuin’s Make Up Artist course takes two years. It is taught in Japanese, so you will need to master the language. See the page with more information on the Make Up Artist course.

There is some English on the site, but it doesn’t give much detailed information (the same is true for Japanese, too, actually… But it does show the length of the courses). If you don’t yet read Japanese, I recommend Rikaichan, a popup dictionary add-on for Firefox.

Tokyo Designer Gakuin offers a free brochure, but again, you need Japanese.

Kjeld Duits (author)
May 29, 2010 (2586 days ago)

hey, how can i apply this course and,also if i apply this course will be how many tearm in one year?

angela
May 29, 2010 (2586 days ago)

@Angela: Have a look at the explanations on the site of Tokyo Designer Gakuin. On the bottom of the page, you will find 「学科のご紹介」. Below that links to explanations about the different courses. TDG courses are separated into stages, two stages per year. For additional questions, contact TDG directly or request their brochure. Please notice that the brochure is in Japanese, and needs to be requested in Japanese. The courses themselves are in Japanese, too.

How can I enroll? What is the tuition fees and duration? Would I get a student visa if I enroll?

ella
Sep 6, 2010 (2486 days ago)

@Ella: You can ask all these questions directly using the Tokyo Designer Gakuin contact page. You can also request their brochure. The brochure is in Japanese, and all questions need to be asked in Japanese, too. This is because you are required to have a certain level of Japanese in order to be able to attend the classes.
