The Bachelor of Fashion and Apparel Designing (BFAD) course duration is 4 Years, that is, 8 Semesters – equivalent of an educational term.

Students focus on class room theory study, with a further practically based group and individual study projects to complete during the week. This allows more time for practical styling based work & encourages effective individual development through the course. A core component of AIFT learning is a series of guest lectures and workshop by professionals from fashion and apparel industry, photo-shoots on professional models from leading agencies with an industry based art team comprised of established fashion photographers, make-up artists & hairdressers. This forms a carefully chosen photographic portfolio of fashion styling images to present to clients.
