Fashion design students got familiarised with garment production process 

Apeejay Institute of Design organised an industrial visit during which budding designers learned about various textiles



For fashion design students, industrial visits are essential as they offer a unique opportunity to gain real-world experience and insight into the fashion industry. By visiting manufacturing units, textile mills, and garment factories, these budding designers can see how the design process translates into the production of finished garments. This experience can help students better understand the technical aspects of garment making as well as the various stages involved in the production process. Industrial visits also expose students to the latest trends, materials, and technologies in the industry, which can inspire them to innovate and stay ahead of the curve. 

Thus, Apeejay Institute of Design recently organised a field visit for the students of Fashion Design to Century Overseas, an export house based in Kirti Nagar Industrial area, New Delhi. It was established in year 1991, and have been exporting woven garments , leather garments , designer wear and leather accessories to European and American countries, majorly UK, France , America and Germany. 

Fashion design students from AID learned about the export house’s portfolio, which consists of esteemed clients like Nordstrom, Oh Polly, Monsoon, Ralph & Lauren, DKNY, Harley Davidson to name a few. The export House has two units namely Wovens and Leather. Both the units consist of a well set mechanical and manual apparatus. Students were taken around different sections starting from the material store, sampling, cutting, and embroidery, which had three sections namely hand, machine and computerised embroidery, sewing lines, washing, finishing and packaging. 

Further, the young designers also got an opportunity to see the process of pattern-making and grading by CAD. In a nutshell, students got an exposure of the complete garment manufacturing process from initial sampling to final production to shipping. 

Students collaboratively shared, “It was a great learning experience as they were practically able to touch and feel the material and learn so many new design techniques. This will definitely add to the student’s vision and help them in designing in future.”
