PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

The Fashion Design Programme at WWI School of Fashion aims at creating a strong foundation in the various aspects of design. Students benefit from a rich educational experience that equips them to succeed in the global fashion industry. Our priority is to encourage each of our students to develop their personal brand of imagination and creativity, to help them acquire the knowledge, skills and experience needed to realize personal ambitions and to find their unique voice as a designer. Master classes are delivered by a dedicated team of practicing designers/industry specialists, and modules are led by experienced tutors. Students are taken on field visits to work with local artisans and are well trained to create garments using Indian textiles with a universal appeal.

Overview of Textile and Apparel Industry

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 2022, 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
