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

Course Structure

This highly advanced course has been designed to help students grasp advanced concepts and practices pertaining to the fashion world. The 4-year degree Programme will help graduates develop complex insights and gain knowledge on the more sophisticated aspects of the contemporary fashion industry, giving them a well-rounded, superior educational experience

Types of Courses:  There are courses in this Programme, some mandated while others are chosen by students:

  1. General Education Courses: These courses offer a context to students learning, enabling them to understand historical developments in their specific areas of interest as well as allied areas such as classical and folk art, cinema, photography, urban mythology, and digital art etc. These are 30 credits overall during the 4-year programme.

  • Any scholarship / fee waiver / fee adjustment extended to a student will be used to reduce the fees payable for the ultimate (final) Semester of his/her program.

    • Students being accepted into the Direction & Producing specialisations of MA Filmmaking need to acquire a MacBook Pro laptop [MacBook Pro M2 & 8 Gb RAM (16Gb recommended)] & a good quality headphone. WWI will provide exact specifications to the students towards the end of their 1st semester, based on new models being launched. WWI also has student discounted pricing, details of which will be made available to the student.
    • All students being accepted into the Producing specialisation of Filmmaking need to acquire Movie Magic Budgeting & Movie Magic Scheduling softwares, which will be made available to them at a special cost allocated for WWI students.
    • All students of the Music Production & Composition programs will need to acquire a MacBook Pro laptop with specifications: MacBook Pro M2 Processor, 32GB RAM (higher is better), a good quality headphone, a MIDI controller keyboard, a license of ProTools software, Sibelius software and a license of the Apple Logic Pro X sequencing software. Changes to the same, if any, will be intimated at the time of admission.
    • All students being accepted to the Fashion Design program will need to acquire an Art Material Kit, a Sewing Kit, a Trend Forecasting WGSN subscription and some fashion reference books. The cost of the WGSN subscription is approx. Rs 20,000/- + GST per year as of now. However, it is subject to change each year. Details will be provided on admission.
    • All students will need to subscribe to the Adobe Creative Cloud software via annual subscription. Mandatory to all. They will be allotted 1 Adobe CC subscription license which they can use both on & off campus on a maximum of 2 devices. The same is being made available to them at a heavily discounted rate of Rs 12,000/- p.a. (subject to an annual increase). This will reflect in the Sem 1/3/5/7 invoice, as applicable. Further, all students would need to acquire good quality headphones. We do not recommend sharing of headphones between students.
    • Students other than for the above-mentioned programs need not acquire their own laptops and can use the computing assets available on campus, but it is recommended that they acquire one after their 1st year, preferably a Macbook to use and get comfortable with off-campus as well. WWI is happy to assist students in selection of their laptops so that it serves them even after program completion.
  • Health Insurance is mandatory for all students. Whistling Woods International provides a group health insurance policy, the cost of which is already built into the fees. There is no additional payment needed for the same. However, it is incumbent on students and parents to provide accurate health information, especially historical health insurance, else the insurance company may reject claims based on ‘undeclared existing condition’ rules, at which point, the cost of the medical treatment will have to be borne by the student / parent.
  • Norms under the New Education Policy allow a student to take a 3-yr break during the official tenure of a degree program to complete their program. This includes term repeat on account of failure or attendance norms. So, a 3-yr UG degree program needs to be completed within 6 years & a 4-yr UG degree program within 7 years. Fees will be payable as applicable for each repeat semester that the student attends based on the current fees prevailing for that semester for the batch that the student joins into. If multiple breaks cause the students to cross the 5/6/7 year threshold, they will need to re-register as a new student. The same is also applicable in case of credit transfers from other universities.
  • Whistling Woods is facing litigation with respect to its campus in Filmcity, Mumbai. WWI has secured relief through interim orders passed by both the Hon. Supreme Court of India on September 22, 2014 and the Hon. Bombay High Court on July 30, 2014, on WWI’s Review Petition challenging the Hon. Bombay High Court’s February 2012 decision on the matter. In its order of July 30, 2014, the Hon. Bombay High Court has allowed WWI to continue its educational activities unhindered until the Review Petition is finally disposed off and in its order of September 22, 2014, the Hon. Supreme Court of India has reaffirmed that decision. The Maharashtra State government, through its Cabinet has taken a decision, in late 2018, to allot the land on which the campus is situated to WWI on a long-term lease subject to High Court clearance. The Cabinet Note for the same is available in the Maharashtra government public documents section. The lease agreement finalisation currently underway and will be presented before the High Court soon. In case there is any update on this matter, adequate intimation / notice will be given.
  • Fee Policies as above are subject to change at Management’s discretion. Appropriate notification of the same will be given to all students. Excessively delayed fee payments may be cause for cancellation of enrolment of student.
