If you dream of building a career in the fashion industry, getting admission into a fashion designing college is the first step. But as they say, there is no gain without pain. You have put time and effort into preparing for entrance exams.  As one of the best fashion designing colleges in India, we share with you tips to get admission into fashion design courses:


  1. Shortlist the courses: Some of the best colleges in India offer different fashion designing courses with different specialisations. For instance, a student of B.Des. (Hons.) Fashion at UID, Karnavati University can go on to specialise in women’s wear, men’s wear, kid’s wear, ethnic wear, athleisure and denim/knitwear. M.Design Fashion Design students can specialise in fashion styling, textile design and pret wear. First determine what you want to study and find out the specialisation you wish to pursue. On the basis of this, shortlist colleges.
  2. Check out the eligibility criteria: Once you have shortlisted the colleges you wish to apply for, check out the admissions criteria. Admission into our bachelor programme requires successful completion of a minimum 10+2 with a minimum 50% score from a recognised higher secondary school board. For the master’s programme, the eligibility criteria is a bachelor’s degree with a minimum 50% score from a recognised institution/university. All the students applying for fashion design courses have to appear for a design aptitude test.
  3. Understand the exam pattern: The best fashion design colleges in India before taking in students check their creative skills. Our design aptitude test comprises general IQ Test, analytical test and creative ability test. The candidates who qualify the design aptitude test have to appear for the situation test and portfolio evaluation.
  4. Solve previous years’ exams: Solve sample papers and previous years’ question papers to get a fair idea about the exam pattern. Practising sample papers will help you understand the exam pattern and you will also learn how to keep a tab on the time to complete the paper.
  5. Put together a portfolio: At the time of seeking admission into a fashion designing college, make sure you invest time and effort in building a fashion portfolio. A portfolio is a great way to showcase your sense of aesthetic and your individual style.
  6. Make a realistic study plan: Preparing for a fashion design college needs planning. Create a study plan that helps you cover all the topics and yet give you enough time to revise before the entrance exam. Make sure to take breaks in between so that you can relax.
