An important affair – Pearl Academy’s very own Design Carnival hosted on May 13 – 14 was the perfect place to get a taste of innovation, direct insight to young minds with their work put up for discussions, taking up various interesting craft workshops and a lot more.

Well it’s March already & we are fortunate to witness Pearl Academy’s Portfolio 2017 (as it usually happens by mid of May) & that too at 5th day of Amazon India Fashion Week, india’s most sought after fashion event. It couldn’t get bigger & better than this I guess(lucky students). Over 350 students showcased their design collection on this prestigious platform of AIFW. From fashion to jewelry to textiles to media & make-up students amazed everyone with their creative projects. Top models Sucheta Sharma, Aastha Ssidana, Donna Masih & Kanika Dev among various others strutted down the runway donning the student’s creation. Show was choreographed by one & only Rashmi Virmani. Have a look at these marvelous designs I shot at Portfolio 2017.

The Fashion i-Workshop- Pearl Academy

Last week was full of fun & was completely memorable as I had this wonderful opportunity to do a collaborative fashion visual making workshop with photographer Tarun Garg at Pearl Academy, Jaipur. It was completely a different experience as I graduated two years back from Pearl Academy & now conducting this workshop with the students of the academy as a guest faculty. The 3 day workshop included lot of fun activities & of course the best part was photoshoots. It was interesting to see new students coming up with fresh ideas & even more fun was to guide them throughout the whole project & also to work so closely with the upcoming designers.

I won’t say much but I was impressed with the enthusiasm of the students & here is how we worked together on this workshop.
