JD Institute of Fashion Technology is the first Indian Design institute to start Fashion and Design programs in London. But then ‘firsts’ is what JD has been about since 1988, when the institute became the first initiative in fashion education by a private player, twenty-seven trailblazing years later, firsts continue. This is a short-term residential program where students do a course with various Universities & Design Institutes. The culmination of this course leads to a professional fashion photoshoot or a 3D prototype. The Institute had been working closely with London college of fashion, University of the Arts, London.
JD Institute of Fashion Technology is the official institutional partner for the India Fashion Week London, wherein the Institute provides an excellent opportunity for its alumni to display their work and students to become the next Gen Star by exhibiting their remarkable talent at an international level.
Fashion and cinema were one of the first to cross borders and gain appreciation from the foreign audience, as an institution it was important to provide opportunities for our students to carry their expression through both these mediums. Our founder, Mr. RC Dalal, also established the India Film Festival Worldwide, which promotes Indian cinema around the world, showcasing culture, talent, and fashion. With successful collaborations and events held at Norway, Poland, Vietnam and Moscow, our students got a chance to showcase their talent on multiple platforms.
The Institute has been a firm believer of the phrase “the world’s your oyster” and that’s exactly what it expects all Jediiians to believe. Learning cannot happen in a vacuum and innovation cannot happen alone. The world will always look towards a generation of problem solvers that we wish to create through collaborative efforts. Hence, we seek universities/ institutions/Industry who have similar principals to become partners for our global classroom initiative. Making design more inclusive.
To make design education accessible to all in India, we have cemented our presence in more than 15 cities. With one mission to provide high quality Education to students from all over the country, including the tier two and tier three cities, especially at a time when the elemental awareness about any program in the fields of Fashion Design or Design, in general, was vastly restricted.
Being an educator for the past 35 years, the Institute has collaborated with renowned brands, global communities, professional skill providers and international fashion weeks to help the students get an extra edge over others.

A good design makes civilisation efficient, a responsible design makes civilisation evolve and a bad design challenges the very same civilisation. It is amazing how everything we touch, see, and engage with , is designed. The institution aims to educate young minds about these differences and to explore how design could improve our surroundings through structured learning. We were one of the first to bring design education to Indian shores and we expect to be the first to make India a design capital because first is what JD does.We also believe academic learning can never happen in isolation, hence the curriculum ensures designated industry hours in form of field trips, live projects and simulations to use their in-classroom learning on real-time scenarios.
A global team of mentors and professors helps keep our students more engaged through unconventional teaching styles that are highly interactive and practical in nature. The students attempt a series of challenging and experimental assessment processes like , interdisciplinary projects , reports on attending international conferences , live projects , time bound problems as part of their evaluation requirement.
