Course Objective

Fashion design is the applied art dedicated to the design of clothing and lifestyle accessories created within the cultural and social influences of a specific time. Fashion design differs from costume design due to its core product having a built in obsolescence usually of one to two seasons.

The first fashion designer, who was not simply a dressmaker, was Charles Fredrick Worth (1826 – 1895). Before the former draper set up his maison couture (fashion house) in Paris, clothing design and creation was largely handled by anonymous seamstresses and high fashion descended from worn at royal courts.

The Indian fashion market has become more pronounced and energized with global players. The fashion industry’s prospects are extremely encouraging and provide attractive openings at various levels not only to professionals but also to talented and skilled graduates.

This course offers a creative, inspirational and yet realistic education for creating the successful fashion design professional. The emphasis is on personal design philosophy. Whether negotiating the design elements appropriate for commercial fashion retailing or exploring the individual conceptual practice of the designer, you are critically challenged to extend your creativity.
