Message from the Managing Director

Shailaja Adhikary

Welcome to IEC. It is my privilege to welcome all prospective students to our revised brochure. We have tried our best to make all possible information available in the brochure.

This dream started almost 22 years ago at small block of 2500 sq.ft. in Bagbazaar with few extremely committed workforce who actually had the courage to dream about imparting education in Fashion and Interior. Till then, a formal education in Fashion and Interior was not even heard of in Nepal.

Yes, those initial days were tough; people were skeptic of our approach, but we stood by our dream and here we are today, successfully running a full-fledged international standard college of Fashion and Interior Design in the heart of Kathmandu. And today, with much pride I can say that we are the best in the business.

Our Faculty members are seasoned professionals backed by vast experiences in their respective fields. Top Fashion and Interior designers (domestic as well as international) come as guest speakers to help students understand and create designs that can be made public through on-campus exhibitions as well as off-campus an also through the Nepal Fashion Week, the biggest fashion extravaganza of the country.

At IEC, we focus more on the practical skills of students. by the time our students graduate, they will be able to visualize fabulous concepts and at the same time build them too.

I am absolutely certain that time spent at IEC will make our students confident and at the same time hot properties in the market as it has been since past 22 years. All our team at IEC looks forward to welcome you to our College.
