Diploma in Apparel design and Merchandising
In a world which revolves on creating individual identities, Apparel Design, as an industry perhaps tops the list of opportunities. This programme looks at the core aspects of the industry and is mainly ‘hands-on’ and practical exposure, also developing skills like imagination, innovation, application, presentations and communication. Multi-skilling is encouraged as it plays such an important role in this trade. The programme is more rewarding and challenging and is designed to assist students in coping with the ever changing world of fashion.
A sophisticated artistic ability to draw and sketch is paramount. Part of the apparel Designer’s job may be assembly of product displays to entice buyers or customers. Accompanying this talent is an excellent sense of color, shapes, and forms. Contrast sensitivity with some details in relation to objects of different sizes with visual perception is also elemental.
