The Indian Institute of Fashion & Design

The Indian Institute of Fashion & Design (IIFD) prepares students for professional excellence in design and business through rigorous and adaptable academic programs, experiential learning and innovative partnerships.

IIFD’s vision is to become globally celebrated as the institution where students, cross traditional disciplinary boundaries to stimulate innovation, partner with creative industries worldwide, and develop innovative design and business solutions. By focusing on the major goals, IIFD will become stronger by conscious design and be known as a strategic organization—one that applies available resources to greatest effect to achieve its vision.

The Institute provides a rigorous learning experience built on the highest standards of academic and scholarly excellence; an environment that promotes creativity and experimentation; and diverse experiential learning with a variety of industry partners.

IIFD has created an inclusive community in which students engage with, learn from, and inspire each other—discovering how their differences and similarities promote creativity, intellectual and personal growth, and understanding.

JCI + IIFD Partnership

JCI Institute and IIFD have formally joined in partnership to offer both IIFD and JCI students the opportunity to study in each others’ institutions to provide global opportunities to our Fashion Design students. The rich opportunities available to our students to live and study in a foreign country and share ideas with students from around the world will broaden their cultural understanding and create a global mindset to launch their careers as designers.

The complimentary diplomas available through this partnership will enhance the careers of our Fashion Design students with complimentary programs that will offer opportunities to learn the skills of fashion designers and apply them in co-operative work placements in and around the metropolitan, West coast city of Vancouver- a leader in recreational technology in fashion design. JCI students are welcome to attend IIFD in Chandigarh, India – a uniquely-designed city internationally known for its architecture and urban design. The master plan of Chandigarh was prepared by the famous Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier.
