Expansion and awareness of the Indian fashion industry has leapt multifold in the last ten to fifteen years, as have the opportunities for designers, stylists and all others associated with the industry. With bodies like the FDCI providing the industry members with opportunities to showcase their talent, offering strategic insights, coherent guidance and support, the present times are most conducive for aspiring fashion design enthusiasts. Prospects for fashion design graduates are pretty good thanks to the huge and still growing demand for “designer wear” and the equally outsized quantity of exports. The scope for fashion design jobs in India is immense as Indians have increasingly become more fashion conscious and seek to enhance it in every way. Clothing companies need to hire people in a variety of jobs, ranging from fashion designers, textile designers, models, retailers, buyers and merchandisers, to provide end-to-end solutions to their clients.

According to a recent study, India’s fashion designing industry aims to grow to Rs.1, 000 crores from the current to Rs.180 crores within the next 5 to 10 years. The domestic Indian Textile market is worth $25 billion today and growing at an annual rate of 15-20%.

So if you have a penchant for creativity, style and originality, a career in fashion designing can be perfect for you. For the talented, the fashion industry besides satisfying creative fancies and materialistic needs, promises glamour, fame, success and high pay packages.

However, it is also a demanding career, as fashion designers need to combine their creativity with managerial skills to sustain in this industry. Thus, if you can create magic with colours, shapes and designs, then just obtain a professional qualification to begin a successful career in the alluring world of fashion designing.
To start a career as a fashion designer, two types of qualifications are required, that is, natural and acquired.

  • Qualifications
    • Natural

      This skill set would comprise of a decent aesthetic sense, colour expertise, good taste and sense of trends and fashion. An eye for detail, knowledge of fabrics and so on is a big plus for those serious about a career in the fashion designing industry.


      Acquired skills would be a qualification from a decent, recognized fashion Institute. You can enrol for either a full-time course or a part time certificate course. Students usually take these up after their 10+2 level. Not that the courses are not available for graduates or people with higher qualification. There are several short-term certificate courses that are offered by the same fashion institutes for super specialization, on part-time basis. These courses equip you with technical and creative thinking skills.
