‘‘The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.’’

The quote above tells us about the kind of dedication and commitment that goes into creating something beautiful and that’s what the Interior students of the Lavelle Road campus of JD Institute of Fashion Technology did on 31st of March, 2015. They put up an artistically creative art exhibit where the theme was ‘Abstractism’.

‘RAHUL MISHRA’, the Master of his own fate

1.1
by Reshma Chatterjee (M.Sc . Fashion Communication, Batch of 2014, JD Institute of Fashion Technology)

 

‘‘There is no chance, no fate , no destiny that can circumvent or hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul” – Ella Wheeler Wilcox

People from small villages and towns dream big because dreaming big doesn’t cost them a fortune. They find passion and determination to strive for what they dream about. Such is the story of this Indian fashion designer : Rahul Mishra. From a small village in Kanpur untouched by fashion, Rahul is the first Non-European to make it to Istituto Marangoni, a renowned fashion school in Milan, with a full scholarship. Enrolling for a fashion course in National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad was a case of luck by chance for him. NID was also the launch pad for his debut at the “GenNext” show at the Mumbai Fashion Week in 2006. The dresses and trousers were made from Kerala handloom fabric and off-white marked the trademark signature colour  for him. Continue reading

LET’S EXPRESS!

The Scream copy

‘J’Dian Express’ : Inspired by the Expressionist art movement of the 20th Century, the idea to find a connection and relevance between artworks of renowned artists and human facial expressions led to these innovative renditions of “expressionism” by the students. The purpose was to replicate and capture the mood of the paintings through our emotions. Every painting has an interpretation of its own, which has been the inspiration behind our own version of depiction.

Back to Imagination at the Bangalore Fashion Week

In association with the Bangalore Fashion Week, the students of JD Institute of Fashion Technology  showcased a spectacular display chronicling 10 defining milestones in the history of fashion right from the 1700s to the present age. Beginning from Marie Antoinette, through Coco Chanel in the 1920s and to the present rage of Eco Fashion, the humble sewing machine has evolved over the ages.

The students decided to create a garment using the ancient art of Origami, often associated with paper sculptures and designs made from ordinary pieces of paper, serving to give a futuristic appeal to the installation.The students worked laboriously for days to create hundreds of origami pieces to convey the gradual yet bold transition from the world of black and white to riotous colors in the field of fashion.
