         Fashion Design at the Polytechnic is one of the most popular and glamorous Courses. The Department is 24 years old. It has been one of the earliest to teach the subject in the city.
Fashion does not only fulfill consumer demands but anticipates trends.

Professionals form the Industry are regularly invited. Students are groomed to be creative and competent professionals, through project work and industrial exposure.
The Department offers a three, two year and a condensed One-Year Course. The Course contents are balanced in each year, on the basis of advancement levels. In short the curriculum covers the creative experiments from conceptualization to execution. These help to transform original ideas to finished garments.
