From August to October 2013, the SoFA Design Institute launches a special series of programs that would allow students to nurture and develop their creative skills via intensive classes that are scheduled around the typical 9-to-6 work window, thus enabling them to cultivate their craft simultaneously with their present commitments.
Instead of the usual 3-month long curriculum, the Fast Track program allows students to complete the following short courses within a period of 9 to 13 weeks: Fashion Design Studio, Fashion Textiles, Basic Fashion Illustration, Basic Draping, Patternmaking and Sewing, Fashion Styling, and Makeup Techniques.
The Fast Track Program also offers longer TESDA-accredited programs such as the 1-year Fashion Design Diploma and the 2-year Fashion Design and Marketing course, both extensive fashion programs in the Philippines that equip students with basic and advanced skills that would prepare them for a career in fashion.
Similarly, the Saturday and Evening School makes attending classes alongside a busy work or school week manageable, as these are conducted on Saturdays, and from 6pm onwards on weekdays. The program includes the Certificate in Fashion Design, which provides a comprehensive overview of the creative design process; and the Certificate in Clothing Technology, which teaches technical skills in sewing and dressmaking. It also offers the Certificate in Fashion Styling, which covers fashion styling, makeup techniques, and photography.
The SoFA Design Institute is the Philippines’ first specialized design college committed to promoting design as a positive force in society, the economy, and in the lives of its students.
