There is no need for maths for a Fashion designing programme at LPU.
My elder sister has done her B.Design Fashion from Lovely Professional University and today she is successfully running her own Brand, she was also the part of internship projects with leading Fashion stylists. Also, her designs are appreciated not just in India but even abroad. She always keeps on appraising LPU for different platforms provided by them.
I will be sharing a few major highlights of the Fashion Design course based upon her experience.
The School of Fashion Designing of Lovely Professional University is doing extraordinary works in the field of Designing. They are conducting Fashion Shows regularly for the students. It gives a great chance to the students to show their talent in front of a big audience. Prominent designers are also taking part in the events. So, surely it is a big opportunity university is providing to the students in Lpu.
The infrastructure for the practical works are very excellent in the university. Students can enjoy the course curriculum which has given more importance to practical knowledge. Scholarships have one other significance. Students can avail scholarships based on their score in the qualifying exam or according to the performance in the University test.
Anyhow you can enjoy the campus and course here, and can excel in the field once you are completing the course.
