Fashion is the creative application of Textiles, Apparel, Garment and other accessories in commercial world. This application requires activities on design formulation and development, material selection, fabric development, garment development and proper marketing with customer satisfaction. So the students enrolling in Fashion Design and/or Textile Design courses require exploring their creative mind for their own professional development as well as product development. School of Fashion Technology facilitates to transform the incoming students as a true creative professional through the knowledge and skill they will be gaining during their course and their own activity.

I welcome all the students and also other individuals who will be interacting with KIIT School of Fashion Technology for such endeavours.
