Diploma in Fashion & Apparel Design
Faculty of Design Innovation KPT/JPS (KA8597) 7/13
The Diploma in Fashion & Apparel Design emphasises the innovation and creativity in fashion design while providing students the technical knowledge necessary for a successful entry into the fashion industry. In the program, the students are introduced to the basic skills of construction in sewing, flat pattern drafting and illustration.
Fashion design is the applied art dedicated to the design of apparel and lifestyle accessories. Fashion and Apparel Design incorporates all the production activities involved in the development and manufacture of apparel items for men, women and children. These include the manipulation and experimentation of textiles to generate ideas that will then be translated into three-dimensional form through pattern drafting and/or draping and sewing.
Field trips to showrooms, museums that help to broaden the knowledge of the fashion industry (special projects and lectures by guest speakers).
By examining their own work and the work of their peers students learn to think critically about design. Students move on to the development of collections in fashion shows and com-petitions. Business practices, marketing, and client relations are studied to provide students with a realistic view of the world of business.

About the Industry
Fashion is a general term for a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, foot wear, or accessories. Fashion references to anything that is the current trend in look and dress up of a person. The prevailing style in behavior as well. The more technical term, costume, has become so linked in the public eye with the term "fashion" that the more general term "costume" has in popular use mostly been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while the term "fashion" means clothing generally, and the study of it.
