At IIAD, we teach our Fashion Design students to be environmentally conscious by building awareness and sensitivity. Our pi-designers develop a strong value system through ethical fashion practices like zero waste pattern cutting and draping, minimal seam construction and upcycling.

IIAD shapes students into contexually aware and ethical fashion designers, who consider the perspectives of multiple stakeholders. You develop a holistic outlook, which helps to address complexities and build conceptually-strong design solutions.

The studio-based projects in the fashion design course lay emphasis on embracing your inner voice motivating a deep exploration of the self. This empowers you to come up with origianl concepts as you are encouraged to carve a niche for yourself.

Deconstruction of the finished garment forms a significant approach in our teaching methedology. This aids a fashion design student's understanding of how a garment is made from start to finish, by breaking down its components. The idea is to learn about the design and thought process that goes into a garment, from concept through construction to the end product.

"With the resources that we are provided with and the workshops conducted, I feel that IIAD has prepared me well"

“We see things in detail now; everything is more sensitive, more related to us. We now know how things work. I've become more responsible, more independent after moving to Delhi to pursue my course at IIAD. “

"The things that have astonished me here are absolute freedom to express yourself and the practical learning experience gained through intensive interactive classes, factory visits and learning through projects.”
