Fashion Design & Textiles Department

Overview of the Department

Producing indigenous Ghanaian designs with international appeal is at the heart of the Fashion Design and Textile Department. Our focus is on leveraging the experiences and knowledge of renowned designers and the fabric industry in providing training in clothing and textile production; this sums up the department’s zeal to be the epicentre of fashion design and textile production training in Ghana and West Africa.

Equipped with modern facilities, the department aspires to improve students’ knowledge of garment production, textile designing and production, interior and exterior decoration.

The HND Fashion Design and Textile and BTech Fashion Design and Textiles expose students to the contemporary craft in clothing and textile techniques with great emphasis on enhancing the quality and student excellence in the industry.

The HND programme is for new designers and students looking to improve their portfolio, or professionals wanting to perfect their skillset as furniture designers, while the BTech Top-up provides auxiliary knowledge in the advance fields of Fashion Design and Textile Production.
