Fashion Design


The fashion design programme  equips you with the creative thinking along with the essential technical knowledge. The curriculum covers the development of garments, technical aspects like Art, Pattern making, Illustration, Grading, and Garment construction, Draping, Merchandising and Computer Aided designing.
After successful completion of the course, you can remain self employed. Alternatively, several export houses, garment store chains, textile mills, leather companies, boutiques, fashion show organizers, jewellery houses and media houses recruit professionals interested in a career in fashion designing.
Fashion designers may work full-time for one fashion house, as ‘in-house designers’, which owns the designs. They may work alone or as part of a team. Freelance designers work for themselves, selling their designs to fashion houses, directly to shops, or to clothing manufacturers. The garments bear the buyer’s label. Some fashion designers set up their own labels, under which their designs are marketed. Some fashion designers are self-employed and design for individual clients.
Other high-end fashion designers cater to specialty stores or high-end fashion department stores. These designers create original garments, as well as those that follow established fashion trends. Most fashion designers, however, work for apparel manufacturers, creating designs of men’s, women’s, and children’s fashions for the mass market.

FASHION DESIGNERS create clothing and accessory designs. They may plan the production and marketing of their creations. Designers specialize in one type of garment or accessory such as men’s or women’s wear, children’s garments, swimwear, lingerie, handbags, or shoes. Some high-fashion Designers are self-employed and design for individual clients. They make fashion news by establishing the silhouette, colors, and kinds of materials that will be worn each season. Other self-employed, high-fashion Designers cater to specialty stores or high-fashion department stores. They design original garments as well as follow the established fashion trends. Designers who work for apparel manufacturers do less original work; they adapt fashions set by other Designers for the mass market.

Designers’ Assistants in apparel manufacturing are exposed to the fast pace of production schedules while performing routine aspects of the job. Assistant Designers acquire the knowledge of what creations will sell at a profit in an intended market, within a defined price range, at a particular time of the year. They learn the personality of firms, types of stores that buy the merchandise, and the age and tastes of the stores’ clientele.

Fashion Designers perform the following tasks:

  • Sketch their ideas.
  • Draw and cut patterns to create sample garments.
  • Select fabric and trimmings.
  • Combine basic dressmaking and tailoring principles with flat pattern work and draping techniques.
  • Fit and modify the finished garment.
  • Arrange showings for press and buyers when the sample garment line is ready.
  • Compare merchandise with those of the competitors.
  • Keep current on trends by reading trade magazines and attending fashion shows.
  • Visit textile showrooms to keep up to date on latest fabrics.


Fashion Designers frequently use the following skills, knowledge, and abilities:

  • Design – Knowledge of design techniques, principles, tools and instruments involved in the production and use of precision technical plans, blueprints, drawings, and models.
  • Idea Generation – Generating a number of different approaches to problems.
  • Active Learning – Working with new material or information to grasp its implications.
  • Operations Analysis – Analyzing needs and product requirements to create a design.
  • Originality – The ability to come up with unusual or clever ideas about a given topic or situation, or to develop creative ways to solve a problem.
  • Visioning – Developing an image of how a system should work under ideal conditions.
  • Coordination – Adjusting actions in relation to others’ actions.
