Fashion Studio inaugurated at PSG College of Technology

PSG-Assyst Bullmer-Mehala Fashion Studio was inaugurated at the fashion technology department of the PSG College of Technology here on Thursday.

Thomas Heinrichs, Managing Director, Assyst Bullmer, Germany and C Subramaniam, Chairman, Mehala Group of Companies, Tirupur inaugurated the studio in the presence of G Rangaswamy, Managing Trustee, PSG & Sons Charities, R Rudramoorthy, Principal, PSG College of Technology and G Thilagavathi, HOD -Fashion Technology.

Speaking on the occasion, Subramaniam elaborated on the requirements of the industries for the technologists.

“The demand for technical expertise is very high in the Coimbatore region. In fact, we do not get technically qualified personnel for apparel industry,” he pointed out.

Textile production in India, China and Pakistan is on an all time high and the requirement for technical hands is increasing, noted Thilagavathi.

Coimbatore and Tirupur, known for garment production, have already started making an entry into fabric manufacturing.

Companies like Precot and KG have already started their own garment constructions company. In this context, fashion technology plays an important role. The students are taught the intricacies of converting a garment into a fabric in fashion technology.

“From pattern making to fabric selection to quality evaluation to finishing of the product and even international business, the students are taught in this course,” explained Thilagavathy.

There are three colleges in and around Coimbatore, namely PSG College of Technology, Bannari Amman Institute of Technology and Kumaraguru College of Technology that have engineering course in fashion technology apart from innumerable institutions that offer three years’ bachelor degree in fashion technology.
