Lisaa School of Design Delhi introducing new ‘Textile Design ’ course
Textile Design (1 year course)
A design is a drawing or sketch made to depict the appearance of something before its production. Textile Designing is an art of creating and manipulating fabric resulting in a marvellous piece of satisfaction.
Textile Design is creating a new design through fabrics, not to design a dress from a fabric. A Textile Designer converts a plain fabric into a designer piece with embroidery, prints, weaving and colouring. Textile designing affects the process from the raw material into finished product.
Elements of fabric design are fibres, yarns, fabric construction, dyes, prints etc. But the technology behind is not as simple as the word Textile sounds. It is a big industry which is not limited only to weaving. Use of computer and technology, Cutting prints, use of traditional analogue and digital techniques, all comes within the industry of textile making. Hand embroidery, knitting, laser-cutting, screen printing etc. are also parts of this industry. Creativity and innovation play a vital role in textile designing.
Whenever there is a talk about fashion, textile is the basic component on which fashion industry stand. It is the thread who tells the story of its success on behalf of the designer.
