Fashion management is an art, and we can learn that here.

Placements: If you want to pursue your career in management in a niche domain like fashion, then this is the place for you. Faculty members take the pain to explain everything in detail and will be there for you anytime you need their guidance. But it's not an autonomous body, and you have to attend the three best placement drives.

Infrastructure: Currently, it's a mediocre campus, but soon the campus will be shifted to another place which is quite big. Books in the library are updated every month, and the computer labs are...

The college has really good infrastructure.

Placements: Placements for my batch were very good. Most of them got the highest package. But, for the AD batch, the placement rate was very poor. There are no such companies who recruit students of Accessory Design branch in one go, though there are reputed companies in the field.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure of our college is exquisite and in pristine condition. Although the campus is very small, the location is easily reachable, and there are several places like the nearby market, shops, local foods, entertainment ...

I don't know about admission at the National Institute of Fashion Technology, Shillong - B.Des. (Lateral Entry). But being alumni of LPU, I would like to tell you that the last date of admission for this programme at LPU is 31st Oct 2021.
My friend did 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!
