International College of Fashion (ICF) is all set to take a new leap with its collaborative programs that will provide students with the opportunity to shape the development of Fashion Design & Business innovations within the fashion Industry, where the student gets a first-hand look at the process, gaining valuable knowledge and experience that employers seek in future employees.

ICF has signed a strategic MOU with AMHSSC (Apparel Made-ups & Home Furnishing Sector Skill Council) an aegis of Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Government of India, as our Industry Partner for the B Voc program in Fashion Design and Technology.

This alliance will hand-hold the students in the field of fashion & design providing the up-to-date industry-relevant courses and NSQF Level Certifications that will boost the careers of the aspirants through enhanced employment prospects and entrepreneurship opportunities.

The course is structured for a 360 degree experiential learning from concept – to consumer, thus making sure that the graduates are well equipped for their professional growth. The curriculum prepares the students with not only the deep rooted, research based subject understanding but also with in-depth knowledge of specialized sector specific skills.

Significant emphasis is laid placed on learning through subject specific case studies, research work, project & practical based work along with experiential learning.

Over the past decade, over 30 start-ups were started at ICF, and the success rate of these startups is high and ICF continues to push boundaries to align its experiential learning philosophy with the industry wants. Our Industry Partners provide the earliest look at where the next big idea will come from. The fashion industry is hungry for ideas, and talent.

The benefits of our industry collaborations continue to stack up, including access to a network of faculty, key opinion Leaders, and Lead Designers, and the ability to team up with other Design Professionals. ICF-industry partnerships provide excellent opportunities to expose students to industry culture, so when students graduate, they are better prepared to start working at these companies
