The event was inaugurated by Shri Shivanand Hulyalkar, Vice Chairperson, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India while Mr. Nachiket Barve, renowned fashion designer and Mr. Vineet Gautam, CEO Bestseller were the guests of Honour. The students from the academy exhibited their projects and the grand finale concluded with a fabulous fashion show followed by the award ceremony.
With over 70 projects at display, the inaugural Portfolio saw some revolutionary ideas in fashion, design and creative business. One of the students, who worked for the software giant TCS for over 3 years quit her job and joined Pearl Academy and came up with a business plan to create an app to connect volunteers with the elderly who require them. The model based on community based palliative care has been nominated for the prestigious Global James McGuire award. Fashion students came up with interesting ideas like a fashion line inspired from planet Mars and sustainable fashion fabrics.
Unlike routine graduating ceremonies, the PearlPortfolio featured varied lines including casual wear, bridal and maternity wear and kids and mens wear. Below are the three things that I loved about the event…
