  1. Blessy Emphraim

    In the beginning, I came onboard as an amateur with aspirations to learn and ambitions to succeed. During the 3 years duration of the course, I saw a bunch of changes happen, within my understanding of the subject matter as well as the industry. JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore prepared me for a practical, real world full of competition and gave me insights on how to be ahead of the competition. While it is important to understand the theoretical aspects of design, it is also imperative to know how to practically apply the knowledge we gained in 3 years. JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore, taught me ways to apply my creativity at its best. The faculties were perceptive and were always available for interaction.

    With a knack for art and designing all through my school years, I always knew I wanted to be a fashion designer from a very young age. With the course structure and opportunities being provided at JD Institute of Fashion Technology, I enrolled to do their B.Sc. in Fashion and Apparel Design. It was the perfect place for me to be, and really helped in refining my skills, as they start right from the basics and make sure you show progress at each step of your way.
    From classroom projects to exhibits and educational tours, the experience had a lot to take away from and that plays an important part in my career till date. The supportive faculty, the immense opportunities to showcase our skills on various platforms, small and big, and the appreciation, recognition as well as constructive criticism received for the same really brought up the confidence and helped pave the way for me to take the next step in my career.
    In April 2019, I launched my label, ‘Label Anamika Jaisinghani’ on social media platforms – Instagram and Facebook. The brand focuses on bespoke women’s Indian, fusion and western clothing with a contemporary twist, as well as wedding ensembles for the bride and groom. The design process taught to us in JD comes through in the work, going in for my clients, and helps me work a lot faster and smoother.
    JD will always hold a special place in my heart, for those were probably the best years of my life so far – all the fun we’ve had in class while working, at all the events and celebrations in the campus, attending fashion shows, and gaining practical knowledge – at these shows and through the projects given to us – JD really made learning fun and interesting at all times.
