At the heart of Fashion Design are the numerous skills that we teach our students and since we may not have all expertise in house we get people from different places and areas of expertise to conduct workshops with our students. The topics that are covered in the workshops vary from pattern making and draping; animation illustration; Denim and washing; learning skills like Crochet; workshops with practicing designers who start with a brief and continue till product prototypes, Hair and Makeup workshop with the industry like Titan on designing new Time Wear. In house faculties conduct workshops on printing and dying; turban tying etc as part of the curriculum.
UID is a well-known and growing institute where academics are taken seriously. It has a beautiful and aesthetic campus I have fallen in love with. The atmosphere is made conducive to learning and the exposure we receive here through the conversations at KU and master classes is amazing. And most of all the campus is absolutely safe and ragging free. 🙂 so far it has been a great place to learn and grow as a designer! — Srinidhi Sem 04, Visual Communication
UID is more than an educational institute for me, it is home and has given me a sense of belonging and safety. It has been a great platform for me to recognize my true potential and my talent. There is a constant support from our faculty that is highly experienced, the well – equipped workshops and labs help us bring our ideas to life. The exposure we get from guest lectures to industrial visits and cultural events and fests is what makes us balanced individuals. — Aafreen Chaudhary Sem 04, Visual Communication
