The Wedding Day by Fall Fashion Week witnessed alumni of JD Institute
‘The Wedding day’ by Fall Fashion Week, an initiative by PSY Fashion and A7 entertainment was organised at Grand Sheraton Hotel, Bengaluru on the evening of 3rd April 2021. JD Institute of Fashion Technology was the Educational Partner and the event which celebrated the theme of bridal wear showcased the work of — designers, of which three were JD alumni – Annapurna Goswami, Bhavana Kamisetti and Jagadish K. Proud of our prodigies, this was a cause of celebration at the institute as one of the primary aim of the institution is to provide diverse opportunities for its students to launch their career though their strong industry linkages.
Annapurna Goswami’s collection “Flower Child” is a resort-wear line that was inspired by the rococo or late baroque period which was associated with grandeur, sensuality, drama and vitality. The collection consisted of pre-draped sarees that incorporated various knitting techniques such as crochet and macrame which were done by a NGO in Agra, UP that supports women empowerment. Drawing on pastel colours for the sarees and bright colours for the knits, the designer created a collection for beach weddings and parties that celebrate an individual with a free soul.
Bhavana Kamisetti’s collection “Ropan” was inspired by Reiki self-healing music. Originating in Japan, reiki is a healing practice for attaining mental, emotional and physical well-being through the act of aligning the condition of the body to its natural states. Music being used in therapeutic practices, Bhavana captured the power of reiki music in her collection by exploring the power of fashion as an element of ‘healing’ and ‘therapy’. Bhavana used discarded fibres from textile spinning units and ‘healing’ them into yarns using roving technique which is only practiced in Vavilala village in Telangana. Weaving them into fabrics, the designer used chanderi silk, silk linen, khadi, pure silk and tussar silk for the collection in colours of white, pastels like grey, purple and khadi brown.
Jagdish K’s collection “Rybie Luski”, meaning fish scales in Polish was a collection that was inspired by fish scales. As an element that is usually discarded, the designer wanted to utilise its potential as an element of embellishment. As scales tend to lose their shape when it is washed, Jagdish used a mixture of water, detergent and shampoo followed by a propanol bath to prevent its shrinkage, after which it was embroidered onto organza and scuba fabric. Conceptualising an innovative evening-wear collection, the garments celebrated exuberance, elegance and grandeur.
‘The Wedding day’ by Fall Fashion Week, was attended by an eclectic crowd of fashion enthusiasts including fellow designers, media, stylists, fashion students and also celebrated movie personalities. The presentation by the JD Institute alumni in the Fall Fashion Week was a moment for the institute to be proud of, and is a testament to the extent to which the institute prepares its students to excel in their work as well as in their career. Supporting an environment for growth, creativity and experimentation, the alumni were proud of their alma mater and conveyed thanks to the institution for providing opportunities for igniting their careers, and for preparing them for its challenges.
