BA Fashion Design @ Bangalore GCU

As an industry, fashion design is going through a boom which shows no sign of letting up. Research has shown that the apparel market is expected to grow up to 6.2% in 2020, so there has never been a better time to pursue an interest in professional design. The field continues to expand, and new jobs are being created every single day.

In terms of career opportunities, there is a lot you can do with a fashion qualification. Garden City University works closely with employers to provide work placements while you are studying, to help build up your professional experience and prepare you for the world of employment. GCU has been active for over 25 years, and has therefore developed a vast network of connections within the business world.

There are also Employability Officers on campus to help guide you through the next steps in your career. The city of Bangalore has so much to offer in the field of fashion, whether it is the corporate or the practical hands-on elements of the industry which interest you. There is something to suit all tastes.

One of the key advantages of the Fashion Design course is its specificity- you can choose to focus in on one particular aspect, which can greatly increase your employability overall. We guarantee you will find an outlet for your creative ambitions, whether it is textiles, embroidery, marketing or any other elements of the industry. If you are interested in the technical side of things (e.g. computer application in fashion design) or the more esoteric (e.g. historical costumes) you will find something to stimulate you and nurture your creative instincts.

The course offers a uniquely eclectic blend of teaching styles. It is entirely holistic, factoring in the practical elements for kinesthetic learners, lectures for the more traditionally academic, group tutorials and independent research work. In addition, it offers considerable flexibility in terms of content for the final year of study, enabling students to follow the path which interests them the most, and to engage in research relating to that particular field. An unparalleled roster of guest lecturers help to keep the experience fresh and stimulating, while the annual “Impressions” International Conference enables students to hone their own presentational skills and research. GCU also offers one to one mentoring as a means of personal development for students.

So who should study this course? Well, it is designed for anyone with an instinct for design and creative flair, regardless of age. Provided you meet the entry requirements to a level which is approved by the Association of Indian Universities, there is a place for you here at GCU. All we will need from you is certificate evidence of your qualifications.

And once you are enrolled, what can you expect? This is a course for full-time students which is three years in duration. It is industry-endorsed, so you know that the material you are studying is up to the minute and relevant to today’s world of work. The student body is culturally diverse but uniformly professional and industrious in its approach to learning. As for the assessment process, this reflects the eclectic modes of teaching in that it incorporates traditional examinations, presentations, coursework and laboratory exercises. Particular areas of study include Garment Construction, Textile Science, Fashion Illustration and Industrial Engineering, but virtually all modular pathways are possible. The university itself is at the heart of the educational community in beautiful, bustling Bangalore. It has been in operation since 1992, and focuses primarily on skill-based learning with a particular emphasis on employability. Fundamentally, the philosophy of the institution is one of nurturing students to their full potential. It is about helping you to identify your strengths, and finding the career pathway which will utilise them fully.

On completing the course, there are plenty of other options in terms of further study. GCU offers postgraduate and research qualifications to enable you to pursue your interests to the next level. There is also a strong alumni network which will allow you to remain a part of the GCU community and enhance your employability, whether you are looking to work in a fashion house, or to operate on the corporate side of the industry.
