The diploma emphasizes innovation and creativity in Fashion Design while providing students with the technical know-how necessary for a successful career in the fashion industry.

Diploma in Fashion Design is very hands-on and students are expected to design their own garments collection. This includes all designs worn to create a statement about the individual. It incorporates all production activities which include the manipulation and experimentation of textiles and trims to generate ideas that will then be translated into three-dimensional form through pattern drafting and/or draping and sewing.
