Sonia Sharma : The above listed colleges for fashion designing are best, but along with these institutes i would like to add the name of one more institute - DIA (Design and animation academy). This academy is a part of IMS university situated in noida. There is no entrance exams, whoever applied in this academy got admission, because the mantra of this academy is to make the career of students not divide them by testing them. ALL the courses like fashion, textile, brand, retail & fashion management, jewelery etc are offered for 3.5 yrs, 2 yrs and 6 months (depend on your preference). Along with the courses, the faculties concentrate on overall personality development as well. For more info, visit its official website diaindia.co.in. Best Of luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
