About Fashion Design and Garment Making Technology (Craft)

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

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.

This craft certificate in fashion design and garment making technology program promotes the trade of fashion and design through technical training which moulds students into fashion designers.
