Dalal, Executive Director for JD India. “We are extremely happy to mark our first overseas foray by opening our institute in Dubai. The JD Institute was born with the objective of developing fashion technology and promoting fashion designers at a global level,” he said.

The course timings have been structured to accommodate working professionals as well.
Aldrin Fernandes, Franchise Partner of JD, expressed his pleasure in being able to partner with India’s pioneer fashion school and bring the institution to the region, “ The JD Institute of Fashion Technology has been spearheading the cause of promoting fashion on the global platform. We are delighted to partner with such a reputed institution in its first international foray,” he said.
