India, which has always been a centre for the garment trade, is growing into a centre of innovation in garment and accessory design. Fashion technology in India has a wide scope for choosing a career and has emerged as a viable career option for a large number of youngsters in the recent years. The fashion industry, now, has become so specialized that it encompasses a vast field of studies in design management, concept management, production management, quality control, planning, fabric design, printing, fashion accessory design, fashion merchandising, colour mixing, marketing and so on. The primary areas of work in the fashion industry are market research, designing and manufacturing of garments and textiles. Garment and textile industries have been thriving in all parts of India by focusing on the diverse and rich Indian traditions, cultural and social ethos. The new millennium has also brought forth along with it the challenge to uplift and reshape the old traditions and blend into modern perspective, thereby adding creativity and innovation to it.
KIIT School of Fashion Technology within the fold of KIIT’s world class state -of -the-art infrastructure and academic ambience promotes intellectual thinking, creativity, innovation and experimentation. It also draws upon the academic excellence achieved by the other institutes of KIIT such as School of Fine Art. School of Cinema, School of Languages, School of Technology, School of Management and School of Sciences etc. In this atmosphere of varied academic activities our students have the unique opportunity to be groomed and to pick up skills of management along with required soft skills to work alone or as a part of a team so as to fit them in changing market scenario. Reflecting this strength the curriculum at School of Fashion Technology blends creativity, art and craft together with careful consideration of human values and functional aspects of design.
