The above all said mention, accomplished individual gift learner life gesture idiom, which easily realize & elicited of its all entice by others, which is true itself idiom of gift individual learners social norm and their natural effusive glory and they carry always with them where ever their present. That is why GIFT GANDHI NGO DESIGN EDUCATION DIPLOMA POWER is emblem high & with esteem depth, than any known or unknown deem or private universities diploma or degrees. We never sells our diploma, for that one need to work hard and gain as per gift design educational standard and that too with out home work that means no cut paste presentation at gift and only genuine learning in front of every one. This shows no gift learner can escape from day to days learning and it is vice-versa, that no one can fool each others, may be student learners or gift faculty. So where is the question & why gift need to buy false deem or private universities paper, that gift design education rejects. Certainly all the educational standard wise known universities, will not affiliate or give affiliation to gift design education, because there teaching pattern are fixed and unnecessarily stretched and elongated and they can not reduce teaching time from 4 years to 7 months as like G.I.F.T. Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India and now Global. And gift teaching pattern are short term and part time, since beginning and individually teaching, even though the biggest designing course abstract globally under the throne authority of gift known faculty, guide and founder of GIFT, Prof. Khalid Ameer Rafique. Because education and teaching is a noble profession & foundation of nation, think how gift can destroy that. Since 1995, that means after seventeen years (1995-2012) of gift actual noble cause in favor of learners, learner strength is not cross even number 500 and in future it will reduce more for quality of education, by virtue of God Almighty.

Where is the doubt?
Which I can not deny, the shortened design education idea, wasn’t mine.., it was NID, idea and very often discussed at NID in the year of 1983-1984, that time I used to go for teaching as a visiting faculty and for such cause Arvind Mills Ahmedabad Allowed me half a day where I was senior designer of weaving section without deducting the salary and even though, I have not charged from NID for conveyance in favour on NID students and onwards 1986-1988 I use to come from Jaya Shree Textile Linen Mills, Rishra, West Bengal for the same purpose. That time I usually think why NID is trying to cut short five and half years school leavers design education programme by at least a year.
I used to wonder, it is necessary or under some pressure or is it their realization???? Because the same design regular course I had done from NID, due to that my curiosity built up, which design course they will omit and at what stage of learning, which I never used to admire and how they will slash learning time period if they are not omitting any design course then how they will manage, so many question and it was sabotage in my mind for calculating design education of NID. Then after some time my mind swing in right direction to my queries enigma in totality to succour me and then one day I found my self functioning in the right manner as I got sacrosanct direction to the life. Than I was able to see the light in, for short term design education and that idea of short term seed sprouted in a manner of not to chop any branch of basic design education, which I have learnt in past at NID. Due to the God Almighty, I got the mission in life to simplify all design courses along with, how to cut down learning cost, in favor of universal learners and “result” of that is “GIFT” Ahmedabad-Gujarat-India and now Global.

Many years joyfully I struggled while working in all repute Textile industry such as Arvind Mills Ahmedabad, JAYA SHREE Textile LINEN (FLEX) Mills RISHRA KOLKATA, West Bengal, Raymond Mills Thane, Gujarat Spinners Gujarat and many more along with teaching at NID as a visiting faculty, to simplify modestly, those all design courses which I learnt at NID as a student and in continuation new design subjects which I have found and learned, while working in industry in favor of learners. After sound understanding, writing and practicing the above said mention short term part time design education, I have tested continuously few years with various level of learners, such as school, college students, graduates, housewife (home makers), painters, doctors and singers etc and finally my mission “GIFT” Design Institute swing in action appropriately in 1995.

I have given to GIFT MISSION, 25 years from my golden era of young life in favor to others and my gain is PEACE OF MIND which is beyond any calculation in terms of loss and growth. And that is due to the God Almighty. Thanks to all those, with whom I was associated in past such as kind, work wise, for any human cause or socially, in life.
Gift is a mirror of design education as like transparent crystal water and that essence spreads through gift Gandhi learners, Google blogs and many gift Gandhi Ahmedabad web site in favor of global learners.

What we have achieved in so many years, we were not aware, but universal messages from global learners and professionals we realize our standing for our noble cause, actually what gift teaches in just 7 months in part time fashion or textile design, which is actually more than four and half years, fashion or textile design educational program of NID, NIFT and other known design institute of the world. This was not imaginary but shocking to all of us such as pioneer founder of gift, faculty, guide, craft person, technician and gift learners, but certainly we all have developed fear about our gift design education program, because we need to maintain our knowledge up gradation and education standard of gift. After such knowledge and awareness, we all become more simple, humble and kind knowledgeable for our noble educational cause, to avoid such thoughts and understanding we all become more friendly and due to that at gift no one can find any prejudice against each others and there is no hesitation or hindrance about improving every ones standard knowledge wise and there is no space for egoist at gift.
We all knows that no human has supreme power as like GOD, we are human & we will remain for our noble cause great learner. Our destiny is gift which is pure by heart and soul, what else we all need from Almighty God. That is why gift all learners live life meaningfully.
GIFT design education and design course abstracts as like crystal water & as like fruits are so near to our reach on tree, loaded and bow down & as like knowledgeable person, who never behave as like egoist, that means gift simple basic design education is more power full than others advance design education. Today, I my self finding life age is less and why short for such noble educational cause.

“We will teach and learn from all those, who will come to share there knowledge and learn at gift Institute Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, for the noble cause of design education in favor of our human society, from across the globe”

GIFT General Fashion & Textile

After learning at NID for five and a half years under the UG Textile Design course I later went on to learn Apparel design for NID Apparel (Fashion) Faculty development program under the guidance of FIT New York Faculty as well as NID faculty, then worked continuously on repute as a senior Designer as well as Design Manager at Arvind Mills- Ahmedabad, Jayashree Textile, Rishria – Kolkata, Raymond mills – Thane, Gujarat spinners – Amletha, various spinning unit, weaving and printing unit, textile handicrafts, handloom sector, ethnic saree development at Dharmavaram, flooring unit, and few garment manufacturing industries in India as well as two years continued painting as a fine arts artist and the end result was my first show at Hutheesing Art Gallery Ahmedabad followed by the one at Taj Art Gallery, Taj Mahal Hotel, Mumbai and simultaneously taught as a visiting faculty at NID, for two years regular faculty at NID and since October 1995 onwards, as a GIFT senior faculty, Managing Trustee and Managing Director of all educational affairs.
All the above mentioned experience and expertise of Prof. Khalid Ameer Rafique is not enough to dictate the total Fashion and Textile of the world by knowledge as well as practice. Fashion and Textile is like the seven oceans of the world and the total mystery of that is difficult to discover by any single person. That means there is no point in claiming to be a master of the above mentioned said.
The role of a designer in Fashion and Textile industry is technically not only designing fabric by weaving and ornamentation by various methods and processes such as dyeing, printing, embossing, etc but according to Prof. Khalid designing begins from an idea and the purpose served for what it is needed by the client or industrial production. This may involve various aspects of requirements of raw material, appropriate facility for manufacturing, processing, finishing, packaging, costing and many more.
The above mentioned understanding reflects a designer’s versatile basic knowledge, for instance, from fibre to end product. It is a difficult task to design textile or garment as per appropriate needs otherwise it is a tough situation to survive in the field of Fashion and Textile design.
Simply as a designer, you cannot deny or reject the above mentioned saying because in this competitive world of professionalism, communication facilities are available at one’s finger tips.
A brief detail to understand the above statement in a better way is as follows:
Textile fibre and Spinning
Textile fibre and its blending with other fibre with an acceptance in a versatile meaning such as dyeing and spinning is seen, for making finer to coarser yarn with an appropriate spinning system , creating a fancy look in yarn technically by dyeing or spinning, slub yarn in various style and count for the final spinning, through different twists such as “S” and “Z” or highly twisted gas yarn, mercerized yarn, hang dye, cone dye and limitless explorations for the above mentioned developments for developing versatile yarns and fabrics of various meanings and utility from fine fabric to canvas or may be industrial fabric is done. That shows if a practitioner designer possesses the above knowledge, he/she can perform miracles while developing a designer fabric.
Textile Weaving
Generally one can count the weaving structure and construction of textile weave at one’s finger tips. Even then the subject of weaving is so vast that no human mind can reach its totality.
When basics are less, then, its permutation and combination, derivatives through imperial methods become unaccountable. This shows that one can carry on developing woven design and can lead his or her entire life in the field of weaving.
There is no doubt that if we praise and write about the God Almighty with all the seven seas as ink and made into the kalam (pen) from all the trees of the world, the writer will be exhausted of writing but the writing tools will not. That shows God has created, earth’s Paradise where humans can keep on discovering from one thing to its endless derivatives and if that mission cannot be completed by any means then one should not be disheartened. This is the way God has created everything.
For example, if we talk about plain weave, that itself has unaccountable development in its world which has very less shaft on loom to use and weave. That means by the virtue of God Almighty, human mind can develop unimaginable things like the sorcerers magic in weaving. And if we have more shafts to manipulate weaving then imagine what wonderful textiles the designers will be able to create.
The above understanding is just the beginning step to enter into the field of woven design. Then think of it, if you live with it and continue developing new things, the mission of development will never get exhausted in the designer’s life.
Textile Printing
As mentioned above textile fibre, spinning, weaving, etc. it is again the same story about printing for ornamenting textile surfaces through versatile processes and methods appropriately which is again a huge subject that one can keep developing and history itself shows that there is no end to this.
The above understanding doesn't need any explanation and justification for its subject of textile printing.
Again, I must say that one can count the processes and methods on their finger tips but its exploration, permutation and combination and derivatives of printing are uncountable, because it simply varies from fabric to fabric as well as the freedom of expression in printing process with possibilities are technically limitless. If you carry on reading the history about such textiles with minute details, I think reading will never end and one will get exhausted about designing. That shows our human society has developed unimaginable textile from time to time. So why to worry, be a part of that like Prof. Khalid! The above understanding and meaning reflects a size which is bigger than any human mind and its resource center. So without getting disheartened while knowing the truth, one should carry on developing such textiles joyfully!
Fashion Garment (Apparel)
Garment is a basic need for humans like, food and its vice-versa for our society to live with it in appropriate status which is again difficult to learn in totality in one’s life.
Garment industry is not less either. Converting fibre to yarn, yarn to fabric and it’s processing, shows how much is pouring into the garment industries for its utility which leads to even more challenging jobs for designers to convert fibre into garment. So, one cannot take such designing industries lightly.
If we study the history, we can easily get lost in the depth of garment style and design of different eras and its transformation from beginning to the present scenario of garment industry globally. No doubt, garment designing is a very unique subject which is next to human liking, where anybody can reject a designer for its development according to their liking and disliking. For this reason, Apparel Designing (Fashion Garment) is more challenging than any other professions.
If we see the garment industry on black and white contrast, it makes us understand that the basics of garment are more important for human comfort, fitting and ergonomically with its gist rather than a versatile name of the garment historically. That means all designers should have sound knowledge where the basics of their subject should be clear. This is the way Prof. Khalid thinks the way he does and GIFT teaches.
Now-a-days various design institutes create jargon's of basic garment and its learning to make the learners more confused. I think it is not right according to my opinion because basic to any subject is the root from where everything starts. And in fashion its further development molds into the character of ethnic, western and style of casual, formal, classic and its fusions.
It may sound simple and easy but practically it is not so, because, we are dealing with human dimension. The garment style is molded appropriately as needed with accuracy of textile with the help of the above understanding. For example, in India the saree blouse is the toughest garment that fits next to the body, creating ergonomically total comfort and grace.
Designing a Basque blouse and its attitude for creating delicate beauty in garment needs various variation and derivatives flawlessly for Indian women which brings in feelings and emotions. But Indian tailors find it difficult to create and make such above mentioned saree blouse. However, at GIFT it is just a 5 minute job to teach a learner, that is why GIFT teaches 70 basic Tailor made garment in a short span with the learner’s measurement. Then, how can one deny the learning at GIFT which exists by the grace of God Almighty.
The above mentioned is one such basic garment which has so many manipulations, permutations, combinations and derivatives with its cut, darts, neck styles, etc then think about hundreds of such various garments. It is not a small field to be learnt easily but at GIFT it is made easy and simple.
Garment industry is not a small industry. It includes all types of garments for routine wear, formal wear, purposeful wear, like party wear, picnic wear, school uniforms, etc., industrial garments, uniforms, protection garments from heat, rain and frost, etc. and many different styles. Then one should think about such a profession which is not an easy job. But at GIFT, it is simplified and can be learnt easily by every individual learner with the grace of God Almighty as well as from GIFT’s faculty.
The above understanding of various stages of development in textile and fashion makes a designer’s mind more perfect and accurate in the field of designing. To achieve the above development a designer’s skills, logic, idea and mind is very much essential to fulfill the world’s need of textile, fashion and garment. For that GIFT’s foundation and common learning along with various appropriate course content makes the task easier for such practices.
In general, one should not feel that textile, fashion and garment designing is a child’s play. But it is a much bigger and wider field that includes amazingly versatile character of our human society which is the heart and soul for the above subject. These are the following characteristics of the above mentioned text:
Emotions, feeling, moods, gestures, Inspiration, nature, forms, skills logic, ideas, sentimental, sensitive, delicacy, immortal, skillful, excellent, pious, good, bold, gentle, graceful, beauty, original, charismatic, charming, expert, tactile, rapid, continuity, virtue, strength, ability, noble, aim, liberty, intellect, graffiti, honesty, modesty, truthful, simplicity, ethos and mythos, empirical, which means GIFT covers minute details for each subject which is taught individually. Then one should think about GIFT learner’s strength which is more suitable for the designing world.
How to learn Fashion Designing with specialization through short term (in 6 months part time) at GIFT is given in detail as follows
Why GIFT teaches differently and better to the fresh learner?
It is very easy for others to teach an Apparel Design package more or less commonly but certainly skillfully that includes learning about textile, garment pattern cutting and its making through flat pattern and draping, along with drawing, fashion illustration, conceptualization according to its theme work, theories and few presentations, discussions etc. With this the task is completed of teaching Apparel Design.
But at GIFT, Fashion (Apparel) Design is full of emotions, feelings, care, which travel to understand from person to person their attitudes, their living, outing, temperament, gathering, cultural and social activities of every individual living with gestures with a capacity of their personal collection.
This is to present themselves with different outfits and fashion Accessories which shows the depth of the above possessed wealth which reflects that person’s heart and soul for his own Fashion style to represent himself appropriately in human society carrying his abilities smartly with himself as per his or her social status correlating to the above understanding.
To teach and preach Apparel Fashion along with its style subjectively with heart and soul at GIFT is very easy. If we carry on teaching with a certain aspect of understanding from our versatile human society of varying segments that would explain as follows:
Routine Fashion (Actual Fashion)
  • Every person living in our society without a doubt and practice their own living as per their liking, moods etc which is a clear mirror image of their gesture of Fashion which reflects in their daily lives.
Benefitial Fashion
  • There are people who are under the impression about their beliefs who carry along with them their reality of living. This way their belief is certainly bound to turn into their trends of Fashion towards life.
Fashion Image
  • Sometimes Fashion for a certain section of people is sheer stubbornness due to the greed they possess within themselves. These people seldom change their style for any cause or up gradation as per their life style which later becomes their identity which is their fashion image.
Classic Fashion
  • There are those who remain intact with a monotonous kind of classic living and their outfits are very much appropriate to that. Due to such a style, one can say it is classic Fashion because they are normally not accepted by human tendencies who always look for new styles. This practice has neither hindrance nor any hesitation for any designer to design such Apparel.
Off-Beat Fashion
  • There are certain people who do not believe nor have a strong character to possess any style personally to draw others attention to themselves hence it is very easy for them to change frequently their style of living and their pattern of Fashion. Their presence in public has both characteristics which is either noticed or not noticed by others. A gesture for such people always give rise to offbeat Fashion which means that their frequency of change in their outfit makes them very bold and the reflection of their style sometimes is appreciable and vice versa. Such people are the carriers of innovative ideas and hold a strong segment in the human society of the above mentioned profession.
Unshaken Fashion & Ritual Fashion
  • There are people who remain with their cultural (ritual) of ethnic styles with a classic touch. Their attitude is certainly gracious and prestigious reflecting the beauty of antique social norms and etiquette of our human society. Such people are noticed to be snobbish in nature because they keep enough breathing space between themselves and others. “What can we call such people’s fashion?” Certainly could be snobbish. Classic, ethnic or probably unshaken fashion.
Freaked and Master of Fashion
  • Some are those who never bother about social norms and status. their character is usually very strong and have no hindrance and hesitations to copy other’s outfits that easily. They are freaked with the rapid change of the outfit style and also talk very sportingly about themselves in relation to the change which they have copied. These could be certainly said to be very bold people and a master of Fashion.
Oldies & Parental Fashion
  • Then come people like grandparents who show that once the person has lived his or her own life for years then it becomes their own duty to carry the family responsibilities on their shoulder. This is why they start living with one classic style of outfit and this parental style brings them high regard and respect. It might be a western or an ethnic gesture of outfit which could be sometimes called the “oldies fashion” which is simple and classic but still recalled and recognized by most individuals under the expressions like “Oh! That’s my mummy’s style” or “That’s my mum’s style” and so on.
True Classic Fashion
  • The people who look like they have been trained under a military type discipline with a code of conduct and outfit is like a uniform for all purposes. They are very disciplined and classic and their representation towards human society reflects living on code of conduct. For them there are special designs and they could be certainly called true classics.
Status Fashion
  • Some are true believers of show business who always prefer branded items who consciously or subconsciously jump from one brand to another frequently in order to maintain their social status which can be termed as status fashion.
Excellent Classic Fashion
  • There are people who are very selective and even reject brands. Their outfit s are usually delivered at their doorstep and they do not normally go for shopping. Such people dictate excellent classic Fashion and this is only practiced by such higher class people.
Highness Classic Fashion
  • Fashion and class – these kind of people are generally very rich or have unaccountable wealth equivalent to Kings and Queens of the olden era. Their outfits are custom made from fiber to end product to suit their status which usually requires a big team of designers. This is termed as Highness classic Fashion.
Humorous Fashion
  • This segment and people have no choices about their outfit. It all depends on the buying capacity which frequently varies from expensive to cheap and then to reasonable in terms of price. They are very smart people even though they have borrowed the outfit from somebody, they enhance it by using the mix and match technique while choosing what to wear. These people are also noticed by others and are called to have no choice fashion.
The above statements make us understand with minute detail of the history from past to the present scenario of fashion globally in relation to the versatility of human society and professionally of Apparel Design.
Due to the possession of such knowledge each individual learner at GIFT NGO is groomed and molded with authority for future practice in the field of Fashion Design.
The above understanding is miraculously a sorcerer’s for various segments of human society, which helps to have an idea on conceptualization of appropriate outfit on any individual through a tailor made garment style.
The above mentioned for versatile liking of different human society helps in creating designs but it is not that easy because it is related with the liking and living standards of people due to that this profession is the toughest globally due to rejections.
That is why Gandhi GIFT is now globally a known design institute because of its strong teaching on basics without hypocrisy, duplication, copying and fooling others where designing is concerned.
In this diplomatic world where truth has lost its glory, true self of people has vanished, where hypocrisy, justification, and reasoning is now in practice, insecurity has crept into the human society because of foolish acts, certainly loosing peace and calmness from the people’s heart and soul.
Another factor is due to the show off attitude of “I am the best” which shows that the human mind is not relaxed and calm today for any human cause and often looses his patience.
The above understanding of human society by growth and pattern of human living is degrading their morale and deteriorating it day by day. Due to this, respect for others has vanished. There is hatred and prejudice prevailing with hypocrisy all around where nobody is bothered to reach others in any relation by heart and soul. Greed of humans has become limitless and a possessive attitude for worldly things is increasing. To teach such people is not an easy task.
Economic growth pattern is always up trend not because of the total development of the human society by all means but due to the human wants and needs that is increasing day by day, which is actually not growth but basically a down trend. Due to the above statement natural resources are vanishing from the earthly paradise which is a big threat to global warming. For such greed the sky is never the limit.
Taking the above understanding into consideration many years back, Prof. K.A.Rafique has developed an idea of a design institute where only learning is the prime concern. This is why things like diplomacy which distorts the relationships with regards to others growth is absent at GIFT. Hence after a decade, GIFT is known globally and referred in other known design institutes, management institutions with a high regard and reputation as in the case of study and education, that we know through friends.
GIFT style of teaching and functioning is based on humanity where nobody is great and everybody is a learner without any hindrance or hesitation to share the weaknesses and learn with transparency fearlessly by the grace of God Almighty.
From the above practice, GIFT is functioning since Oct 1995 according to its goodness to the students. In spite of GIFT being an NGO it may be preferably lesser as compared to other institutes due to lesser space and funds but GIFT is able to provide all learning facilities by the virtue of God Almighty.
I myself Prof. Khalid.A.Rafique preaches and teaches designing with heart and soul, with nobility and thorough humanity but still feels like the greatest beggar on this earth by all means mainly to fulfill his mission as well as living which he accepts proudly for himself.
There is no doubt about the fact that it is very difficult for the people of this earth’s paradise to accept the above mentioned text. According to Prof.Khalid, those who have taken birth by virtue of God Almighty are all born beggars. To understand that there are a few good examples mentioned. Mostly when people kneel down or bow themselves in prayer for their ritual practice in front of God due to their beliefs in return they often ask uncountable and merciful favors of worldly goods which lies only between the person and God Almighty.
Every human living gesture is based on favoritism which is in other words begging. To understand this any industrialist who manufactures versatile things for various market segments to reach with his products to the users needs to be understood. Firstly he looks for raw materials as per their requirement, as a better deal and lower priced good, appropriate for his survival. On introducing his product in the market for the end user return is gained in terms of money with the help of various sources like keeping a few managers for its recovery, for which sometimes true skills are needed for his own begging.
Normally you may have heard people asking “may I beg a favor of you?” that can be for forgiveness or a merciful attitude and in any case where justice is also begging and nowadays students who really want to learn desperately find ways in the form of a favor from their teacher very cleverly which is also a sort of begging.
The above text shows that most people of this earth are less able to live in this world and in order to fit in they use versatile methods to live the life as per their likes and dislikes through begging.
You may have heard quite often phrases like “May I beg of you to drop me there” while traveling towards the same direction.
The above statement shows that the human mind always looks for favoritism. There is nothing wrong in that because without begging there is nobody to make a donation in any possible manner for any cause.
By birth every human has been taught the art of begging and bowing down in prayer by God himself.
In this basis how can one deny that they are not beggars because begging is a kind of art? One should learn from versatile segments of people for your own good cause, like the untrue and true politicians prevailing everywhere whose begging and claiming is vice versa. Another example – industrialists asking for favors according to government norms for survival of industries, admissions in schools and colleges, and many more such examples.
Certainly begging humanly makes the world more beautiful. For example we have unaccountable schools, colleges, dharamshalas, musafir khanas, lakes, ponds, planted trees, good public playgrounds for kids and paths for common use that helps in upgrading the society and this utility has no end towards a united living..
“Why don’t people think in this direction?”
Simply because they are beggars who do not have the acceptance power, as a result of which nothing has happened in the level of the past of the above such mentioned phrases.
That is why; I, Prof. Khalid feel that I am the biggest beggar of this earth and am not shy for such an acceptance, but certainly have gained a higher regard and respect towards life socially in the human society which till today nobody has denied in my surrounding.
We are looking for funds to rebuild GIFT like a fresh learner of the design subject for designing an element of paradise. Therefore I put forth my request on humanitarian grounds to come forward and help such people, for those who are having by the grace of god almighty a healthy life with abundance by all means.
We heard and read while surfing the internet that there are thousands of people helping for such a cause such as Bill Gates, Ford foundation, Muslim Khams Fund Trust, sometimes World Bank and UNDP etc.
But their pattern of reaching people is not simple due to the crookedness of versatile beggars because eventually they all work for the up gradation of human society by the grace of god almighty Hence it is difficult for me to reach such above mentioned people and organizations as first priority is sharing knowledge and second is up gradation. That is why it is my humble request to guide me after reading the above mentioned as to how we should approach such organizations for such human cause which is living and working since 15 years in one direction only.
No doubt, this mission will remain even after the founder, I Prof.Khalid is no more. I wish many people should stand up for such a cause make such institutions for all learners. That is why GIFT policies are unchangeable by any means but this means that GIFT has set its example and opened the doors to develop such institutions in the near future.
By the grace of God Almighty GIFT is a powerful institution for human kind along with designing which saves time, money and builds up the confidence of every individual learner by thumbing authority.
GIFT has a time bound program and is the best in the world in short term and part time courses. To understand the mission of GIFT and its course abstract the detail is given in the following statement below.    DEVELOPMENT OF GIFT

GIFT’s pioneer is an Ex- NIDian and one of the most experienced EX-NID faculty, Prof. Khalid Ameer Rafique, who has worked for years continuously in one direction, while working in repute textile industry such as ARVIND MILL - AHMEDABAD, JAYA SHREE TEXTILE LINEN MILL {flax mill} - RISHRA WEST BENGAL, RAYMOND MILL - THANE and many more, specially in the area of “WOVEN DESIGN” with immense patience to SIMPLIFY the systematic individual style of DESIGNING as well as appropriate objective of teaching method to solve the “FRESH DESIGNERS and learner’s difficult task for design skills and its utility in continuous process of all design subjects making them more understandable and the above said research and hard work has been giving FRUITFUL results since its 1st beginning year 1995.

GIFT NGOs Professional Degree Learning means: Gift appropriate design course abstract, Individual Professional Design Project, Professional Practice in appropriate Industry, Research and beside Gift Course abstract learning, all learn work should be documented properly in three copy, which means 1 for each, learner, Gift and associate university, then Gift will provide them Associate Degree, which means Gift NGOs learners will learn Designing 100% in Gift Institute and 100% they will practice in appropriate industry, but Gift NGOs Faculty will monitor fully, that means the Design Course will be completed in two phase equally, such as 50% time for learning in Gift and 50% time for Industrial Practice and this year Gift learner need not to pay for Industrial Phase Practice and Learning to Gift, which means the FEE remain same for learning at Gift as per Gift fee structure, till then there is no change.
“ATOM SIZE GIFT NGOs                                                               
GIFT NGOs will begin 2 years DEGREE Design education programme with 25 Students only this year. Admissions open as per ATOM SIZE GIFT NGOs norms.

Since 1995 GIFT Design Institute Fashion/Apparel or Textile Design Diploma Certificate Education Programme, along with Common Foundation Learning Duration is 850 to 930 Hours under Gift Faculty presence and presently gets completes in Seven Months, which College/University students can stretch for a year due to their Exams and House wife/Home maker for their home front, as per Gift NGOs Design Educational Policy, Mission, Objectives and Teaching Methods, with this system no learner left out, and total design education becomes BURDENLESS. 

GIFT DIPLOMA POWER MEANS: Gift Faculty Teaches to Fresh Learner from 0 to 100% in all Design Subjects, for example: if Gift learner never held needle and threads in hand for fixing cloth/garment/button etc, while learning they become perfect design tailor and can make garments for any one after taking measurements etc in short span and they becomes self reliance and this increases Mental Strength for Design Conceptualization. This is ATOM SIZE GIFT NGOs Diploma Strength, then think what will be the Gift Degree Value than.

Gift two year Fashion/Apparel or Textile Professional Associate DEGREE, means total learning hours 850 to 1200 in presence of Gift Institute Faculty for their learning appropriate design subjects in Gift design studio and 700 hours minimum for Industrial exposure/training/practice, where ever Gift Learner Training get fix and while training Gift Learner should perform professionally as per Gift Design Education Missions.
In last phase of Gift NGOs learners need to compile and document their total strength which they gather through industrial training, for example: Industry establishment historically, in which segments they are dealing, their market, their production capacity, their quality control systems, where they have use your strength, their market feedback and research, if they paid you stipends, if they offer you job then appointment letter, If possible photograph with permission, your working hours, common technical details which comes in general categories etc in A 4 Size Book formats, as per Gift Designed Degree Book Format for all Gift Design Education along with their training certificate, from where they got training, which means Gift Learners True Knowledge compile 150 above page technical thesis is good enough to gain associate degree from Gift NGOs.

FRESHER’S Age should be 14 years and above and GIFT does not require any design skills/knowledge, for that, GIFT faculty take care of it individually.
