Fashion Design and Styling

What is Fashion Design?

One of the most creative course option, Fashion Design is considered to be a very prosperous vocational education stream not only in India but abroad as well. This is primarily because the Fashion industry has grown by leaps and bounds and that too within a decade.

Thus, going by these numbers it is apparent that selecting a course in Fashion Design is bound to open up a plethora of opportunities for aspirants. However, it is worth knowing some important aspects of this course. Although Fashion Design and Textile Design are closely related to each other but there is a difference between the two. While Fashion Design is dedicated to creating clothes as well as lifestyle accessories, Textile Design course educates students about the process for creating structures as well as designs for knitted, woven, printed fabrics or surface ornamented fabrics and the likes.
