Overview

Fashion design and garment making technology encompass fashion design, fashion marketing, garment making, fashion technology, clothing management, and textile design.

Fashion design is the art of applying design, aesthetics, and natural beauty to clothing and its accessories. If you have a penchant for creativity, style, and originality, a career in fashion designing is the one tailor-made for you. 

Fashion design is influenced by cultural and social attitudes and has varied over time and place. Fashion designers work in a number of ways in designing clothing and accessories such as bracelets and necklaces. Because of the time required to bring a garment onto the market, designers must at times anticipate changes to consumer tastes.

Garment making is an organised activity consisting of sequential processes such as laying, marking, cutting, stitching, checking, finishing, pressing and packaging. This is a process of converting raw materials into finished products.
