Infrastructure: The whole campus has very fast Wi-Fi connection, For B.FTech students, there are two IT labs, one pattern making lab, one garment construction labs and two machine labs with advanced machines. Library is very important part of the college. It has very good collection of books. Classrooms are also the clean and we'll maintained. Besides this the hostel is well maintained but there are 3-5 persons in a single room. No hostel facilities for Boys. The quality of food in the mess keeps changing in ev...

I don't know whether the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Kolkata offers B.Des in fashion design course or not. But being alumni of LPU, I would say that LPU offer 3 years and 4-year course in this programme,
My brother completed B.Design Fashion from Lovely Professional University and today she is successfully running her own Brand, she was also part of internship projects with leading Fashion stylists. Also, her designs are appreciated not just in India but even abroad. She always keeps on appraising LPU for different platforms provided by them.
I will be sharing a few major highlights of the Fashion Design course based upon her experience.
The School of Fashion Designing of Lovely Professional University is doing extraordinary works in the field of Designing. They are conducting Fashion Shows regularly for the students. It gives a great chance to the students to show their talent in front of a big audience. Prominent designers are also taking part in the events. So, surely it is a big opportunity university is providing to the students in LPU.
The infrastructure for the practical works is very excellent in the university. Students can enjoy the course curriculum which has given more importance to practical knowledge. Scholarships have one other significance. Students can avail scholarships based on their score in the qualifying exam or according to their performance in the University test.
Anyhow you can enjoy the campus and course here and can excel in the field once you are completing the course.
Experimental Design And Production
Students are encouraged to experiment with different materials to create conceptual wear and accessories.
Educational Trips And Industrial Exposure
Students are exposed to fashion shows, craft fairs, industry internships and craft documentation.
Skill Oriented And Application Based Teaching
Intensive exposure to practical work in Patternmaking, Draping, Weaving, Printing, Dyeing, Garment Construction labs.
Live Projects
Students are given various Live-projects during the course of the programme to create commercially viable designs.
I hope this helps you in making a wise decision.
All the Best!
