It’s a fashion designing competition in which the students from prestigious colleges across India will be taking part in it. JD School of Design powered by JD Institute of Fashion Technology, Bangalore and its other centers are also taking part in the event. It gives a bigger platform for the students to showcase their design talent, where students get to unleash their creativity and reach out to the world with their designs.
The vision of this show is to recognise the next generation fashion designers and to provide a platform to connect them to the real world of fashion. It is a huge opportunity and a great exposure for students where they will also get to interact with esteemed jury members.
This year’s theme is Blue Nation which empathizes with serenity, stability, inspiration, wisdom and sustainability. The colour of London and the colour of Denim, Blue is the perfect balance between style and monotony. Since blue is unpretentious and easy to style, deconstruction denim would be a workable option.
