Pearl Academy hosts Mumbai Portfolio fashion show
Students from Pearl Academy’s four campuses: Jaipur, Noida, Delhi, and Mumbai presented their work in a fashion show to showcase student’s graduating collections as panel discussions addressed emerging trends in the current economy.
As Pearl Academy celebrated “25 years of creative impact, design, fashion”, students from the fashion school presented their collections in a runway show held at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event was inaugurated by Govind Shrikhande, the Managing Director of Shoppers Stop and SM Shetty, the Managing Director for SM Dyechem Ltd and attended by industry professionals from Future Group, Pepe, and Tata Trent among others.
A panel talk entitled “WEconomy” used the “World Café” method to discuss the current economy in India and what this means for the country’s fashion industry. The session was organised with the academy’s School of Business students who also presented to the audience.
One notable student, Krithika Chandramouli, presented a collection entitled “Tashreef Rakhiye – Please Have a Seat” that consisted of fashion made for wheelchair users. Chandramouli realised that, although there is a lot of “functional clothing” available for wheelchair users, there is a dearth of fashion with “emotion” and design. Chandramouli’s showstopper, a model in a wheelchair, displayed the collection’s marriage of design and functionality.
Another of Pearl Academy’s graduating students, Khayti Saraf, showed a collection entitled “Braille – the art of dots” which was inspired by how the visually impaired use touch to read braille and to recognise people. Saraf’s collection had elements of touch, braille, and dots intended to be brought alive by the wearer.
