Department of Textile, Fashion & Jewellery Design

The Textile, Fashion and Accessory programme at BNU MDSVAD, has evolved with a dynamic vision this year to meet the ever-changing ecology of design. Global and regional expectations in the context of design morphology have led to the restructuring of the TFA curriculum with renewed passion. The TFA structure will allow students to decipher their own customized learning path choosing electives of their choice which will act as a scaffolding to support their design investigations.

Currently the TFA department meets its objectives with a multi-fold approach; it actively assists students in exploring their potential as design professionals, who can conceptualize innovative ideas and translate them into creative solutions for industrial as well as artistic practice. Current, local and international design trends are introduced in response to changing global developments focusing on “green” design solutions. Students are encouraged to contextualize their design identity in a wider communal fabric, where the socially conscious thinker-designer must give back to the community in a positive way. The programme combines active research and practice, relying heavily on the rich cultural traditions of South Asia as well as contemporary international art and design practices.

Courses are structured to stimulate learning through a multidisciplinary mode of study, thereby questioning, exploring, developing and realizing ideas and concepts. Through discussion and debate with distinguished academia, artists, designers, craftspeople and professionals in the industry, students learn to extend their observational, analytical, technical and communication skills to become innovators in their fields.

The department offers a multi-faceted approach. Students interact with faculty from Fashion, Textile, Accessory Design, Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design thereby learning holistically, before specializing in their area of interest to emerge with a unique skill set. Studies are closely linked to the industry to provide opportunities to actively engage in live projects, competitions, design fairs and art exhibitions. In their final year of study, students are mentored by leading designers and artists working their way up to the development of a portfolio of bespoke designs for Accessory, Textiles and Fashion.
