Ludhiana – IIFT organized an Industrial visit for the Department of Fashion designing student at the very renowned ZIAMA Industries Pvt Ltd. On 4th June 2019. In IIFT we believe Site visits are an important part of your learning. The intent of the Industrial visit is to bridge the gap between Theoretical training and Practical learning in a real-life environment. Mrs Saloni Chopra (ZIAMA Industries ) addressed the students giving them an overview about the functioning of garment Industry.
After the address, students were taken to their manufacturing unit and Step wise production was explained and shown to the students.
