Fashion Styling & Design

Duration: 480 Hours in 6 Months + 3 Months Internship

Studio-based Interactive Learning Environment I Industry-based Career Oriented Syllabus I Personalised 1-to-1 Attention

The art and science of applying design and principles of aesthetics to clothing and accessories requires as much a deep understanding from a technical perspective, i.e. producing patterns, toiles and specifications for designs, sourcing, selecting and buying fabrics, trims, fastenings etc. as anticipating and forecasting trends and keeping up to date with emerging ones.

This immersive & hands-on program at VISTAS takes the student from design concepts and processes through to final production, progressing from basic drawing, draping, pattern making, sewing, and tailoring to haute couture while teaching business and contextual studies. With a strong foundation in technical proficiency and good eye for market trends, students will start to hone their individual styles and identities.
