India Kids Fashion Week 2019 returned with its seventh edition, on 14th July 2019 at the Lalit Ashok, Bangalore. What sets this fashion week apart from the other fashion weeks, is the coming together of talented young children, designers and brands both Indian and International under one roof for its biggest clientele – parents and vendors alike. The participating designers for the Fashion week were like Nischala Reddy Kids,Ahhaaaa, dééYashaswini, Gulmohar Creations, Khyati Design Studio, Vastrakriti, Rainbowbird Couture, Mini Klub, SohumCreationsetc. The Showstoppers for the event were South Indian actressesKamanaJethmalani with her daughter;Vaishnavi Gowda;Mrs.India Galaxy Popular 2017, Sujata John etc.
Children showcased their confidence, ramp walk and talents like singing and dancing which enthralled the judges and helped them gauge who could go through for the final event. The final event saw children strut the ramp like seasoned models and totally owned the show presenting beautiful designs that was appreciated by the audience. The designs were dreamy and captured the vivacity of children beautifully.
Students of JD Institute of Fashion Technology received an opportunity to volunteer for India Kids Fashion Week, wherein they partook in the rehearsals before the show. The final event witnessed the students volunteer in various backstage activitiesthat are vital for the smooth running of a successful show. The activities that the volunteers were involved in were as follows – taking care of children, getting them ready in the designers/brands collections, assisting the designers/brands, getting the children ready to line up for the walk and then taking them carefully to their respective parents. The hands-on experience enables the students to understand the various elements involved in organizing an event and seeing to it that is conducted without any glitch.
The glitz and glamour observed at the show by the audience, masks the buzzing activitybackstage. Unlike adult models, children need constant monitoring as the anxiety of performance and staying apart from their parents makes them vulnerable and they have to be constantly kept in check to ensure they are fine. The students were able to adhere to the protocol of the organizers and handled the curveballs of an event with equal élan alongwith upholding a professional front.

We learnt how to deal with the choreography and back stage activities and understood how a large scale event works. I would like to thank JD Institute of Fashion Technology for giving us this wonderful opportunity”.
