There are four seats reserved for foreign students, so I can recommend going for it. Regarding Aptitude Test it is simple written objective test but personal interview is what matters a lot to get admission. ‎75% of aptitude test is about IQ TRUE/FALSE statements; rest 25% is about creativity and sketches. Don’t worry about Aptitude Test. Emphasize on one-to-one oral interview and personal presence. Make two or three sleeveless dresses, high heel and charming make-up will help you in interview.

Query  – Which designing field has more scope and exposure these day

Query Statement: Which designing field has more scope and exposure these days? I am interested in both, Jewel designing and fashion designing. It’s really hard to choose one. I have done B.Sc., I was doing MBA but I left because I don’t have interest in that field. Just want to join fashion industry and hope to launch my brand after BS. I have good taste in both jewel selection and clothes, so bit confused what should I select. I am currently at home, but soon I will take admission in either NCA or PIFD. 3 months back I dropped the 2nd semester of MBA at QAU. Because of lack of interest, I just want to know that which designing field is more attractive for female. And what is its scope at national and international scale? I am very good in drawing and sketching. Because the problem is I have interest in both jewel designing and textile. So what will you suggest?

A degree in Fashion Marketing and Merchandising help to you for many fabulous career opportunities in the rapidly growing fashion industry. This degree program builds up an extensive portfolio of skills that gives permission to you to pursue a range of career paths as companies look for multi-skilled employees to work in multi-functional groups. From this program you go into variety of careers and you can go into both the manufacturing and retail sectors of the fashion and textile industries as Buyers, Marketers, Fashion Marketing and Retail Managers, Brand Managers, Product Manager or Developer, Merchandising Manager, Business development Manager.

Fashion design is the fastest growing field in Pakistan; it carries a huge earning positional especially for those who decide to work as self-employed in the industry by starting their own design labels. Whether you decide to go for employment or opt to start your own business you need to have proper world standard qualifications at hand if you want to excel in the profession.

Also I want to mention here that all foreign countries like the textile of Pakistan, so that’s why here a huge competition in this field no doubt, but every person make own space in own industry by doing hard work and smart work. So, if you have ability to create space then you must go for it. May Allah help you in your life. Amen!

You really need work hard to create your space as there is already a lot of competition in the market. You will also need to develop your communication skills (good if you’re already blessed), grooming and your socialization skills apart of all hard skills, I mean professional skills. The field is equally good for females; you just need to be headstrong and should have full confidence in yourself. Every field is good for females you just need to create your place very wisely and strike while the iron is hot. Be careful when you select your school, good schools will equip you in a more professional way than any other ordinary school. If you go for your own labels then I suggest you to get attached with any good and well known designer to get an idea of market trends and techniques

Noor A S Qureshi

If you are good in sketching and has the talent of creating something new in wearable pieces then I would suggest that she moves forward with fashion designing. Because once you excel in that you can anytime go ahead and expand her brand in jewelry, shoes, products etc. Hope it helps you. Have a good day!

Well fashion industry is at boom these days but you need be careful as textile sector is not doing so good. Look for job opportunities in daily newspapers to have a clear idea about the scope of work

In my view the possibilities are immense considering the potential of the local and export market, but in my opinion it is the export market that we should tap as the need of the hour is value addition in the exports of garments from Pakistan.
