How to go about choosing between Textile design & fashion design? Im class 12th student, Should I appear for UCEED, NIFT or NID DAT Entrance exam?
The creative, The soft side, The craft side of design also in accessories & also there in communication design and also there in Fashion & Textile design. Look again what do you like as a career. Would you like to work with Cloths, Accessories that has a lot of soft hand touch & feel and you don’t need to be on factory shop. So my suggestion is look at career, look at the kind of things they do & then choose, If you are very clear that you want to work with Textile or Fashion. Both are the very good options, The people who are working with Textile & Fashion Technology, They enjoy their work.
