Inter National Institute of Fashion Design (INIFD) and London School of Trends (LST) will be celebrating the creativity of emerging Indian student designers by presenting “INDIAN FASHION TRUNK” at New York Fashion Week for the 7th Season on February 12, 2022, at 7.00 p.m. (EST) at Ziegfeld Ballroom, New York, USA.
Anil Khosla, the CEO, of INIFD, said, “We aim to provide our students true exposure and skills to excel in their careers. The collaboration of INIFD X LST at NYFW is a testimony of the same. I’m incredibly proud of all the student designers who worked hard to source the required materials and create a beautiful collection despite facing difficult situations professionally and personally due to the pandemic.”
The young talent has proved their mettle in these uncertain times by not only adapting themselves to the new normal but also bringing out their best creative prowess which will get all the attention at New York Fashion Week 2022.
Sunny Somra, Director, London School of Trends, said, “It’s our 7th season at NYFW presenting Indian crafts and artisans for the world to witness the hidden gems of India through the vision and creativity of our students under expert mentoring. It’s commendable that in times of pandemic, INIFD connected as a team with more than 100 design schools pan-India, as a part of our exclusive partnership. They have truly lived up to the adage, “The Show Must Go On…”
Set to represent India at a prestigious global platform like NYFW, the collection by student designers will reflect ‘Craftsmanship of the Future’. Capturing the spirit of India with students coming from diverse backgrounds, they are focusing on fall-winter trends for the 2022 season.
Mentored by Fashion Expert Gintare Jankuniene, the Indian Fashion Trunk will be presenting 52 garments; all of which reflect their narratives.
Ritu Kochhar, Director, INIFD, said that “Indian Fashion Trunk designs depict our rich culture, indigenous craftsmanship, art, design, originality, textiles from different states of India. Its vibrant colours with rich deep hues and fabrics are one-of-a-kind due largely to the craftsmanship that makes India a powerhouse source for fashion. I am extremely proud of the student designers who have worked hard in these difficult times to give their best shot.”
