The Fashion and Design course deals with creating and designing garments that justify the current fashion trends and preferences. Societal needs and geographical location also impact the demand for fashion designers.
The Faculty of Fashion & Design (FFAD) at SGT University allows the students to enter the creative world of the fashion industry and learn the fundamental skills for having a successful career in the industry. The fashion design courses are planned as project and practical oriented.
Students can design and showcase their fashion and lifestyle products in the faculty’s in-house fashion brand #Designforlife. The garments are imagined, drawn, made and styled by the students, later preserved in the fashion museum. The students are also taught the art of merchandising, retailing, and entrepreneurship.
Most people choose to pursue Fashion Designing because it makes a person a canvas, and the attire of their art enhances or compliments the person. Here are five ways why to choose Fashion and Designing as a career at SGT University:-
1. Creativeness and uniqueness in the course
In fashion designing courses, one must put their creativeness and x-factors in their garments to make them look unique. The Faculty of Fashion and Designing courses do not lead to confined-to-office jobs. There is always a need to be innovative in the field of fashion. As the field of fashion is dynamic, professionals must adapt themselves and create attires that justify the ongoing trends.
2. State-of-the-art infrastructure
At SGTU, FFAD offers its students classrooms and smart class facilities, libraries, and labs to conduct practical sessions essential for Fashion and Design students. There are labs such as Pattern Making & Draping Lab, Dyeing & Printing Lab, Computer-Aided Design Lab, Workshop, Construction (Apparel) Lab, Construction (Lifestyle Products) Lab etc.
3. Cultural diversity
Fashion varies from place to place according to geographical traits and religious beliefs. People’s fashion varies according to customs, values, morals, economics, art, and technology. Historically, clothing reflects what is culturally acceptable by a certain society. Before World War II, women were not allowed to wear trousers, but women had to work in industries wearing pants as the war advanced.
4. Fashion and sustainability
With the growing world, people are not only looking for expensive and good looking attire but also the garments that would contribute to doing well in the world. As a student of Fashion and Design, you’ll learn about different techniques and systems that can make this industry more sustainable. For example, we can use natural proteins to create fibres and fabrics.
5. Diverse Opportunities
Fashion Designing is much more than just dressing up models and making garments. There are diverse opportunities in the fashion industry that a degree holder can apply for. You can be a designer in a brand or fashion house. You can work as a fashion journalist or a fashion magazine editor, a fashion critique, create fashion blogs or work as a stylist or groomer for celebrities, Merchandisers, Fashion Entrepreneurs, Fashion photographers, Fashion Academician and Product Managers.
