“During her course-work at POLIMODA, where I am a senior visiting lecturer for the MA programmes, Shirin always demonstrated excellent aptitude to tackle any assignment given.

She is very flexible, devoted to the task at hand, and likes to think in solutions. Next to this, she is an eager learner, able to research efficiently and most ready to fully join the fashion industry.


I would warmly recommend her!”

“Shirin Raipur is one of the students I remember very fondly.  She was always friendly, inquisitive and open-minded, and thus enriched the lectures, exercises and seminars in a refreshing way.


Her consistent presence as well as the continuous preparation and follow-up of the subject-specific contents reflected her ambition and her success-oriented manner.


When working on assignments in a team, she always demonstrates great skill and does not shy away from presenting the results she has achieved.  She actively participates in discussions of relevant topics and convinces with her professional competence.


I can recommend Shirin unreservedly and without reservation.”

“As the fashion photography professor at Polimoda, I had the pleasure to have Shirin as a Master student.

In my classes, I weigh evenly on conceptual development as well as the final visual communication piece such as a campaign shoot.

Shirin showed a strong understanding of the connections between a brand's DNA, the conceptual communication idea/approach, and the target group.

Her understanding of visual communication is accompanied by a deep cultural inspiration from her heritage that she uses in her communicational approaches to visual storytelling.

I can highly recommend Shirin as a young professional, and as a lovely, compassionate human. “

“I have personally supervised Shirin Rajput's research paper for my course “Archaeology of Fashion Film” at Polimoda Fashion School, Florence.

Shirin has been able to identify references to investigate how brands are adopting fashion films as a genre to establish communication with their audience, above the traditional advertisement strategies.


This means that she has been able to examine the visual storytelling managed by fashion film to play with the audience's knowledge, vision and thought, understanding how this phenomenon produces new content, not only as a new marketing tool for the brands in the digital age, but also as an artistic and experimental form that intertwines fashion and cinematic culture.

I have appreciated Shirin's accuracy and dedication as a student, and I am confident that she will be able to pursue any career in the field, thus I recommend her for any endeavour she chooses to pursue.”
