A holistic input on generic design with more focused approach towards apparel inculcates the ability to develop and channelise creativity. The Fashion Design specialisation offered by the Department of Fashion & Apparel hones design sensitisation, which balances global fashion aesthetics with an Indian soul. It addresses needs of the export market as well as both couture and pret a porter clothing in India, expanding and categorising apparel design into niche segments. In tandem with the shifts in the industry where Design has become even more significant, the students are trained to anticipate and address relevant concerns and issues. A logical, sequential, hands-on experience enables students to conceptualise designs, make patterns, drape and construct garments of impeccable quality.
