New Delhi, July 8 (IANS) India’s JD Institute of Fashion Technology has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with India Fashion Week London (IFWL), which is scheduled to happen in October to celebrate Asian fashion by popular designers.
A first time event, IFWL will see the JD Institute of Fashion Technology as the official institutional partner.
Through this MoU, the institute’s alumni will get a chance to showcase their collections at the international level, and its students who are pursuing their education will get a chance to become the next Gen Star by showcasing their talent.
RC Dalal, executive director of JD Institute of Fashion Technology, said in a statement: “This is a great opportunity for all the students of JD Institute to showcase their talent globally. We at JD Institute of Fashion Technology have always been a regular contributor to the development of the Indian design industry with exhibitions and fashion shows.
“I’m sure that we will set new benchmark this year with the talent and creativity my students have. India can now boast of dozens of leading fashion designers, who can match any European fashion designer in their concepts, styles and designs.”
Also partnering with IFWL is the British Asian Trust, a charity spearheaded by Prince Charles in the desire to do something about the widespread poverty and hardship that he saw in South Asia.
IFWL, to be held October 16-18, will involve fringe events in various places across London, ranging from VIP jewellery launch events to well known authors on Indian fashion hosting seminars on the various styles and trends seen on catwalks.
