Professional Diploma In Fashion Design

INTRODUCTION

The new millennium demands a new breed of designers.  A designer who has an intuitive understanding of the new generation needs, a desire to create better living environment and an innate respect for nature and her resources. The Fashion Design programme is formulated in such a way that it will  equip the designer with a holistic knowledge and a well balanced perspective of designing.  The ultimate aim of the course is to create a responsible designer who will serve the country and society by innovation, education and research. The syllabus of this course is project oriented so that it  will not only benefit the students but also the local artisans and it has a social relevance.

Professional Diploma in Fashion Design is a four semesters programme with an ultimate aim to create a responsible designer who will serve the country and society by innovation, education, technology and research. The course falls under an emerging area of design necessity. The yesteryear fashion designing course churned out designers for the field of clothing and its related industry but without  a thorough understanding of the society, environment or technologies around them.The course is based on the core subject - "Design Thinking" with an aim of creating a 'Responsible Designer".  This programme provides a perspective of society, environment, education, technology and innovation so that a fresh and unique approach in the fields of clothing, accessories and furnishings may be developed thereby creating more meaningful products and experiences.
