AFD was conceived in the year 2000. AFD is an institute run by an Alumnus of the National Institute of Fashion, Technology, New Delhi. Several students had approached the founder, of AFD over the years for assistance in preparing for the NIFT/NID admissions. There was a need for a comprehensive course that could provide a clear guidance to the NIFT/NID/CEED examinations. An urgent need was felt for a tutorial which could impart training to secondary school students , such that these students could be completely equipped for the NIFT/NID entrance exams.
