Welcome to Imagination
“A teacher who is not dogmatic is simply a teacher who is not teaching” – Gilbert K. Chesterton
And there it is- the underlying mantra that defines the system of education at International School Of Design. They leverage the greatest value to established facts, the emergent ideas and progressive thinking that is the hallmark of being patrons as Fashion Designing Institute. They inspire and educate their students to be the source of this change, to be the next big name. International School Of Design-INSD made a promising beginning under the aegis of prominent educationists and industry leaders and got its share of accolade in 2015 when INSD was awarded as “The best design institutes in North India. The INSD Corporate branch located in Gujranwala town part 2, near north campus Delhi University has a Ultra-modern infrastructure, INSD boasts of 30+ training and placement partners, industry centric learning, international connect and out of the box training methods.
Its Founder and CEO Mr. Sunjey Aggarwal believes in a clear approach of contributing back to the national and international design scenario, which will transpire into best opportunities for the young INSD brigade to participate in the real world of interior, Fashion, Jewellery, Textile, Graphic and Animation design. INSD has collaborated with many prominent causes and events including India Runway Week as their educational partners in September 2016 a fully integrated fashion show called Think Design at Thyagraj stadium in April 2016 and setting new milestones for the young talents.
INSD encourages its students, faculty members and staff to embrace a culture of lifelong creativity and innovative learning, develop critical and solution based thought process, acquire progressive career skills, and become responsive to the dynamics and the changing realities of the industry and the global community.
Consistent with the mission, their vision is to create world-class institutes that achieve outstanding student learning outcomes by invigorating creative excellence in the field of fashion and design education. They differentiate their institutes by offering high-quality academic programs through close student-mentor engagement, research and creative programs, project based learning, state of the art learning and delivery facilities, and internationalization of the curriculum.
I recently had the opportunity to visit INSD with my younger sister, who has chosen to make a career out of Fashion Designing. Needless to say, a good degree firmly establishes your feet on the path to success and hence our stop at INSD. My first impression of the beautifully designed an imposing building was one of awe; but I was skeptical enough to wonder if the content matched the facade. Here too, I was not disappointed, for I learnt that the faculty and supporters of the institute comprised of some of the most venerable names from the fashion industry. The professors were a surprise with just how affable and approachable they were and the students quite voluble about how much they enjoyed what they were being taught. The institute believes in not just imparting techniques and textbook knowledge but also offers opportunities to develop practical skills, making sure their graduates are well-rounded in their chosen field. They stress on SELF INITIATED LEARNING, which ensures students open their minds to alternatives, explore, create and analyze all processes. A complete package of skill, technique, professionalism,creativity and innovation. That’s what I think INSD is.
