Course Overview

This Under Graduate fashion design course builds a strong foundation in terms of design sense, conceptualization, independent research, creative application and individual artistic expression.

Fashion Design runs the gamut from evening-wear to sportswear, womenswear to menswear, and kids wear to knitwear. Students are asked to choose their area of interest and sharpen their creative ideas. Students are also introduced to various historic fashion and art movements as reference and to put into perspective how they influence contemporary fashion. This is the very reason why fashion houses, designer labels, luxury brands, apparel retail brands and ready-to-wear fashion industries seek our students.
