The delegation visited various leading international institutions/organizations and Footwear clusters for collaboration/association and exchange programme in the area of Fashion, Footwear Design, Technology, Leather Goods & Accessories Design etc.

During the visit to the footwear clusters it was observed that there is a possibility of creating specific market for the ethnic products manufactured in various clusters of India provided the understanding of international need and culture is dissipated in the clusters.

The system of partnership between FDDI and firms of national and international stature is a vital feature throughout the entire didactic process: students have to come to terms with concrete design projects, whose aims and contents are defined together with the firms.

The delegation visited ARS ARPEL, which is the most prestigious school for the bags and footwear model design located in Milan - Italy, the world capital of clothing and leather fashion. It's renowned for the method of teaching with extensive knowledge of new CAD-CAM technology.
