The program comprising 3 trimesters (40 credits each) aims to train stylists for the furnishing and interior designing industries to perform as part of a team to style spaces or as individual entrepreneurs. Topics covered in the program include: Styling of spaces for function and ambience Contemporary interior styles Creating your own style through space visualization Color conceptualization to make color work for you Material explorations Furniture & Artwork in interiors Guiding you in product selection This program is designed for students with an interest in sourcing and resourcing materials for use in styling of homes. It aims to provide comprehensive understanding of developing a personal style through visual communication and its application in the interiors and soft furnishings industry through classroom lectures, practicals, market study and sourcing, lab work, assignments and design projects.

Retailing in India is one of the strongest pillars of the economy as it accounts for an estimated 35% of the country’s GDP.

The course bridges the gap by providing focused learning comprising theoretical concepts of fashion, retailing, business strategy, marketing, buying and merchandising, etc. The candidate further develops as an enabler by experiencing industry interface in the diverse areas of retail operations, merchandising and visual merchandising.
