Hello Folk,
Hope you are doing well. I just read your question and i found that many students have this question in their mind, which is very common amongst the students when they are thinking of opting creative and challenging field as their career.Just because they are not aware what are the educational qualifications and basic skills are needed they give up many a times. Here is an answer to your query.

Textile Industry has been a great Career Industry since long time. Their have been a great revolution in this industry. its one of the most Oldest creation of Human being in History. Fashion and Lifestyle always had a great impact on this industry in order to meet the demand of Lifestyle, Fashion and Creativity. There is huge range of Textile production and designing in different parts of the world giving an immense scope for designers to show their creativity and to do different experiments in textile industry. It involves understanding of traditional techniques as well as modern techniques of mass production. This industry is receiving a global recognition with many international brands and fashion designers.

Students aspiring to go in this industry should have certain skills that will be helpful to groom in this industry as students work with Textile production houses,Export houses,Multinational brands,Fashion studios etc. Or one may also set up its own production house.
