We can’t even count how many people are connected with the Fashion Industry in today’s date. The number is huge. Many students and young aspirants are aiming towards a career in Designing. And why not? After all, it has such a wide and positive scope with abundant opportunities for young minds!
Many of my friends, colleagues, and relatives are directly or indirectly connected to the Fashion Industry. And there are so many Universities, Institutes available for Designing career training and degree. I have been frequently asked about, what are good colleges for Fashion Design in India? So today, I want to talk about one such good institute on the blog to make a Career in Fashion Design.
I have recently been invited by INIFD Gandhinagar, which is a country’s one of the most reputed organizations offering various courses in Fashion Design. I was invited to their annual fashion show when their graduating students work on various themes to create various Fashion Sequences. The students are given specific themes to take inspiration from various moods, geographical location, history, and occasion. I have seen their creation and it was quite impressive. They have collaborated with India’s one of the most prestigious fashion events like “Lakme Fashion Week” and they work with India’s top models to showcase their work.
Looking at the sources of education and training for such careers, I decided to write this post for those who are willing to make a career in the Fashion Industry and looking for options other than NID, NIFT, Pearl Institute of Design and many others. Trust me, the scope is huge!
INIFD is considerably a good Institute with India wide branches. The institute name, INIFD stands for INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF FASHION DESIGN. Yes, it is an international institute.
