The AIFD Advanced Diploma of Textiles, Clothing & Footwear (Fashion) is an intensive 1 1/2 year course that will enable students to develop their own label working independently in niche markets or seek employment within the fashion industry as designers, production managers, head patternmakers, administration and management. This qualification enables prospective fashion designers to develop skills across all aspects of the fashion industry, combining creativity with sound marketing and business skills.
Embedded within the Advanced Diploma course is the Diploma of Textiles, Clothing & Footwear undertaken and the Certificate IV of Clothing Production undertaken during the first 12 months of the Advanced Diploma course. Students who have already successfully completed the Certificate IV qualification may enter at the Diploma level.

Course Duration…
The Diploma is run over 12 months full time, with the Certificate IV in Clothing Production forming the first 6 months of the course. All Diploma students will undertake work experience in the industry during the course which gives students real hands-on experience in the industry. Most classes are offered from 9am to 4pm, over four days but occasionally you might have some changes to that schedule. The course is intensive which is why we offer it over 18 months full time instead of 2 - 3 years as some other colleges do, but students will be able to manage a part time job while studying.

Fashion Design will help you to discover and explore the individual style and talent you can offer this high profile industry. You’ll develop your skills and interests with projects which build technical know-how in everything from concept to catwalk.

Our innovative approach to knitwear design is one of the most distinguishing features of the course and you’ll be highly employable with our Fashion Computing subject under your belt. You’ll work with classmates on professional presentations which simulate real-world scenarios and will complete your degree with a magnificent final range (which you will display at a graduation fashion show) and a professional portfolio to take you straight into your first job.
