Under the program, students are trained intensively in the theoretical, practical and technical aspects of fashion design by an outstanding team of faculty members within a highly supportive learning environment.  

Students become adept in coming up with innovative design concepts backed with the proficiency to bring those to life through use of basic as well as advanced processes and techniques in areas such as sketching, patternmaking, draping, embroidery, apparel design, clothing construction, textile design/analysis, computer aided design etc. 

Additionally, the program will provide students with a strong understanding of the historical perspectives and theories of fashion along with the global concepts and practices of the business/marketing side of it.
