AIFD is ranked high among India’s leading fashion design institutions providing quality education to students who are the wards of either ESM or in service and hence from all the parts of the country. AIFD was established in 2004 with a vision to be a world class institution for fashion and apparel design education. Over the years, AIFD has won numerous national awards and accolades and is ranked 13th among all the fashion colleges in India and is ranked 5th for the best placements. AIFD offered both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in FAD till recently. The technology driven pedagogical approach, delivered by well qualified and dedicated faculty ensures that the students who graduate from AIFD are a class apart from the rest. The faculty work towards not just developing knowledge but also instilling the right attitude and skills in the students for a holistic education. The activities on the campus ensure that the AIFDians are dynamic and well-groomed in fashion, social and event management skills. AIFD boasts of a world class infrastructure including library, specialized labs and facilities in sports. The institute conducts a range of events from social awareness to international programs in order to impart life skills, competencies and attributes which are greatly valued in today’s global work environment. Moreover, discipline which is a non-negotiable factor in a student’s life on our campus, inculcates the values of time management and punctuality. Emotional intelligence, which has now become a critical prerequisite for any individual, is nurtured through full – fledged value education classes and regular counselling sessions. Industry – Academia network includes interactions with top corporate managers and guest lectures by experts from the industry to facilitate a smooth campus to corporate transition for the students and to enhance their employability quotient. I am confident that the institute, with its rich legacy, will continue to shape the future of the young minds of our country and transform their potential into successful careers resulting in both personal and national development.
