Established in 2015, the Department of Fashion Design helps mould designers who bring together aesthetics, style, and functionality to create the products we wear, use, and love.
An education in fashion design plays a crucial role in helping students learn how to translate their ideas into clothing items that are stylish and innovative, and that also address the needs of customers.
While students are actively encouraged to discover and hone their creative talents, emphasis is also laid on the technical and practical aspects of fashion design. This includes analyzing future trends, learning about the manufacturing and marketability of an idea, and understanding how different materials contribute to different outputs.
At the Department, students study about design specializations like apparel, jewelry, accessories, and occupational and functional textiles.
The Department also houses the Centre for Garment Design Manufacturing and Quality Control, an initiative set up in collaboration with the Department of Handloom and Textiles, Government of Karnataka. Students can use the Centre to enhance their skills and improve their knowledge.
