First thing, fashion communication degree is not fashion designing. They co-relate with each other but are different. While fashion designing is more of designing and evolving new fashion trends, fashion communication is the skills to be able to use the tools of communication in fashion. It is more like communicating fashion to the masses using media and other tools. Such tools include PR, print, events etc all communicating fashion. While selecting your programme, d not get confused that for fashion comm you have to study fashion designing or go for a communication degree. There are institutes offering fashion comm degree.

Fashion Comm is offered by NIFT, admission to which is done through its entrance test. The degree is Bachelors in Design (Fashion Comm). This course is offered at the NIFT Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai campuses. It is also offered at Symbiosis Insitute of Design, Pune, AAFT Delhi.

Why going for a degree in Communication or Fashion design when you are interested in doing a course in Fashion Communication. NIFT offers a specialized programme called B.Des. (Fashion Communication) you should go for that. Application process for its Entrance examination is currently going on. Detailed information about that can be found @
