Textile Design forms the core of the whole business of fashion. The rapidly expanding activities in the export and domestic sectors of the Indian apparel and home fashion industry demands professional inputs in design and development of textiles and raw material, which is responsible for 60-80% of the cost of the product. Textile design today is that strategic value adding activity that can make all the difference in transforming a fashion business into an economically viable & profitable proposition.
The Textile Design specialisation offered by Department of Fashion & Textiles equips students with broad-spectrum education in textiles while developing creativity, originality and design application in apparel and home fashion industries. The programme prepares students for a wide range of careers in textile mills and export houses, with fashion designers, design studios, mills, buying houses, handloom cooperatives and buying agencies as Design or Fabric Managers, or work independently as Designers or Entrepreneurs.
