Abhijit Mandal – Jury Video – JDADA 2019
JD Annual Design Awards is around the corner, the JEDIIIANS have just done with their External Jury. Abhijit Mandal, Creative Head for VOI Jeans who was part of the Jury panel for Fashion Department shares his experience about the entire collection.
Brief About the Theme
This year’s theme is Curator. We’re inspiring and guiding the design aspirants to become expert, obsessive and articulate curators of ideas you care about. The traditional definition of a curator is someone who takes care of a museum collection. The modern definition of a curator is someone who cares for something enough to study it, collect it, improve on it significantly and communicate it interestingly before an audience. A modern-day curator is a bridge between the idea he is passionate about and an audience eager to know more about the idea. He or she lives and breathes the cause. And the cause isn’t limited to the professional sphere. They actively live the philosophy. It enters all walks of life. That’s why they get the most creative, innovative and resonant ideas.
