Admission :

After completing my 12th standard from a Science background, I decided to go for fashion designing due to my impeccable sense of designing clothes and accessories in leisure time. After doing online registration and filling a form, I had to appear for NIFT entrance exam, I met the cut-off expectations of NIFT and was invited for counselling round after which I met the cut-off expectation again and was asked to choose the college along with the course.
