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.
