Opportunities for Graduates

India is the second largest producer of textiles and garments in the world. The Indian textiles and apparel industry is expected to grow to a size of US$ 223 billion by 2021, according to a report by Technopak Advisors. This industry accounts for almost 24% of the world’s spindle capacity and 8% of global rotor capacity. Abundant availability of raw materials such as cotton, wool, silk and jute as well as skilled workforce have made the country a sourcing hub.

The textiles industry has made a major contribution to the national economy in terms of direct and indirect employment generation and net foreign exchange earnings. The sector contributes about 14 per cent to industrial production, 4 per cent to the gross domestic product (GDP), and 27 per cent to the country's foreign exchange inflows. Thus, growth and all-round development of this industry has a direct bearing on the improvement of the India’s economy.

Textiles and Apparel Industry provides direct employment to over 45 million people. The textiles sector is the second largest provider of employment after agriculture. Fashion Design graduates may work as a Costume Designer independent or with a reputed designer or brand. Graduates could also work as fashion stylists for films/television. Visual Merchandiser, Fashion Show Coordinator, Fashion Photographer, Fashion Illustrator and Pattern Designer are other areas where a fashion design graduate can work in.
