Fashion Communication

Communication is the act of transferring information from one place to another.

Although this is a simple definition, when we think about how we may communicate about a subject, the subject becomes a lot more complex. There are various categories of communication and more than one may occur at any time.

The different categories of communication include:

Spoken or Verbal Communication: face-to-face, telephone, radio or television and other media.
Non-Verbal Communication: body language, gestures, how we dress or act - even our scent.
Written Communication: letters, e-mails, books, magazines, the Internet or via other media.
Visualizations: graphs and charts, maps, logos and other visualizations can communicate messages.

Fashion Communication

Fashion communication is a kind of 'Visual communication in Fashion' where the conveyance of ideas and information in forms are conveyed by various methods . It is a broad spectrum which includes signs, typography, drawing, graphic design, illustration, industrial design, advertising, animation, color, and electronic resources.

Now, to communicate about 'Fashion' , you will need to learn the basics of Fashion Design first.

Hence, any 'Fashion Communication' course will teach you the basics of 'Fashion Design' in the first year along-with other subjects. You will continue to learn about Fashion Design through the second and third years too. However, in the second and third years the focus will be more on the methods of communications and market strategies. 

Without the basic knowledge of 'Fashion Design' is it not possible to 'Communicate' about Fashion. The student is hence expected to learn the basic nuances of Fashion Design well in the First year of their 'Fashion Communication' studies.

A typical 'Fashion Communication' syllabus will have the following details: ( Course content and sequence may vary from college to college to some extent )

Design Education In India

Design, A Vital Component Of Economic Development And Social Well Being

Design being still a relatively new field for India, students and their parents have little or no idea of how to choose this stream or a college for their ward. Tougher even, is how to prepare for the entrance examination for design.

We already know the value of design as a vital component of economic development and social well-being. India’s competitiveness as a global economy hinges on our ability to harness that power of design. 

Need For Design Education

Design education in India is a valuable asset, which must be nurtured so it can go from strength to greater strength. We need a sufficient number of designers to drive the industry and to devise solutions to face up to challenges such as sustainability, smart cities, clean India, and effectively delivering public services. 

It is a misconception amongst parents (and also students) mostly about design being just a glamour field. At the back-end of the most glamourous looking design field, Fashion Design, lies a lot of hard work and studies too. Interior Design is very different from basic ‘Interior Decoration’ and is very much a technical field of study apart from being an artistic field of study too.

Fields In Design Education

But Fashion and Interior Design are not just the two faces of ‘Design Education’. There are many more fields to choose from eg Industrial Design, Product Design, Graphics Design, Interaction Design, Animation Design and so on and so forth. Every stream of design has a great career possibility today. Design, as a profession has a bright future in India and globally.

Architecture, which is called as the ‘Mother Of All Designs’ is also frowned upon by the parents and teachers. Everybody wants their ward to become a doctor or an engineer.

Guidance For Design Education

It is time now that the students are given a proper guidance so that our future ‘Design Thinkers’ are not suppressed and are allowed to study ‘Design’ by dispelling the misconceptions in the mind of their well-wishers.

We welcome you to contact us for an appointment for a one to one session with us to understand the Scope of Design Study better.
