Dear Student,




The fashion industry has a great potential for the growth, development and export .The job of a designer always involves a variety of tasks but it varies enormously according to the size , type of employing organization or firm.



Some designers spend most of their time actually creating and sketching brand new ideas, styles and trends. Certain specialize in designs which are collaboration and adaptation of ideas from various sources.



Some fashion designers specialize in pattern cutting- a task which requires great precision. Other responsibilities may include making elaborated and detailed working drawings of one's own or someone's else designs, cutting sample garments, draping and pinning them on a dress stand or model and making the necessary adjustments to improve appearance or facilitate manufacture.



The professional training in fashion designing is strongly recommended to those keen on pursuing a career in fashion designing. Almost all the polytechnics especially those for women offer courses in fashion designing or dress designing or costume designing.



Most of these courses are open to students after completion of plus two or equivalent level of education. Admission to these courses is usually made on the basis of aptitude test evaluating flair for designing and sketching, sense of perspective in two and three dimensional space , aesthetic sensitivity and skills in visualization.



The NIFT is the premier education institute in the country imparting professional training to men and women aspiring for a career in different areas of the fashion industry. It offers 4 year undergraduate programs in design with scope for specialization in fashion design, accessory design, knitwear design, leather design etc. Admission to such courses is made on the basis of an entrance test.



The minimum eligibility criteria to sit for an entrance test is 10+2 or equivalent.


Nowadays, Indian designers are getting enormous opportunities to display their creations in international fashion stores. Indian fashion designers are being approached by global chains to create separate lines of clothing and accessory.



The garment export industry and the fashion outlets in the country are growing rapidly. There is a promising and lucrative market not just for haute couture but also for sports, leisure war and the ready to wear segment of the industry. Fashion professionals are either working on their own or they are attached to fashion houses or garment export units , to the film industry , to theater or to electronic media. Many textile units in the country have launched their own fashion lines and this has created ample of opportunities for skilled and talented fashion designers.

Hi,


Greeting's for the day!!!

Fashion design is the applied art devoted to the designing of clothing and lifestyle accessories. This art is influenced by cultural and social attitudes and has evolved over time and place. Fashion designing has come a long way from the designer clothes worn by the royalty of the ancient world to the haute couture products of the present.

Fashion designing is one of the most lucrative, appealing, glamorous, and exciting career options in todays' world. If you have a penchant for creativity, style and originality, a career in fashion designing is the one tailor made for you. On one hand, that fashion industry satisfies both the creative fancies and the materialistic needs of the people. On the other hand, it promises glamour, fame, success and a high pay package to the talented people.

However, it is also a demanding career, as fashion designers need to combine their creativity with managerial skills to sustain in this industry. thus, if you can create magic with colours, shapes and designs, then just obtain a professional course to begin a successful career in the alluring world of fashion designing.

Job Prospects:
In India, the fashion industry has just begun to come of age, as it is still in its fledgling stage. This industry offers plenty of opportunities for talented hard working and enthusiastic people. Prospects for fashion design gradutes are pretty good, thanks to the huge and still growing demand for "desinger wear" and the equally outsized quantity of exports.

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.
