“Talk of shining like stars and we Pearlites aim for the moon. 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. The most ecstatic of them all being the theatrical act curated by the graduating batch of 2013-17 with their collections”.-Sonali Patel, graduating batch 2017.
