INIFD Collaboration

Fashion Designing

Fashion is Art and Clothes are your Canvas. Fashion Design is a multidimensional profession that involves the seamless blend of one’s design skills and creative imagination. It is an art that involves designing clothes keeping in mind the consumer’s tastes and preferences. At INIFD, We encourage our students to come up with creations that are fashion-forward and wearable but at the same time giving them the space to visualize and create unconventional and out-of-the-box garments

Interior Designing

Interior Design is a versatile career that involves designing aesthetically-pleasing interiors along with optimal utilization of the available space. The course involves Practical-based learning backed by design theories that will help the students to understand and explore interior design at a larger perspective. We focus on preparing our students by giving them a thorough knowledge of the subject and equip them enough to face real-time challenges in the Interior design industry
