B.Sc in Fashion Design
Duration: 3 years
Throughout history, fashion has greatly influenced the fabric of societies all over the world. What people wear often characterizes who they are and what they do for a living. As Coco Chanel once said Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.
Today, the fashion industry is a 2.5 Trillion Dollar global industry, where fashion designers, manufacturers, merchandisers, and retailers from all over the world collaborate to design, manufacture, and sell clothing, shoes, and accessories.
The industry is characterized by short product life cycles, erratic consumer demand, an abundance of product variety and complex supply chains.

The HND course in NILA was a learning experience as it is practical based. Being the first batch I got the opportunity to work in an industry after having the experience of 1st year. It was my luck to work in a B.R footwear company as an intern in the fabric and trims department as I love to do accessories...Sheena Gaba (Fashion Design Department)
