Khushboo Bohra and Pragati Deshlahra participated as Student Designers at NEW YORK FASHION WEEK 2019.
A few months back, on my bucket list , I mentioned going to New York Fashion Week . Well instead of going to one , I designed for one . One morning, INIFD sent us a mail stating - Opportunity to be a Student Designer at NYFW , as soon as we saw that mail we knew we as a team of 6 people are participating . We weren’t aware of what was about to happen next , but with the help of INIFD Chennai and Mrs. Suparna (Fashion Design Faculty-INIFD Chennai ) we came up with our inspiration and concept called "QUALIA" . Later in November,we began with the making of our Mood board , Colour board , Concept board , we began illustrating the sketches and worked day and night in the INIFD campus.
We were then called to INIFD MUMBAI in the month of December to meet the NYFW MENTOR Mr. Joseph Toronka. We reached there with all our illustrations and after an amazing meeting with him we finalized our designs . It was one of the best and the most memorable days in our lives. We also had a lot of fun in exploring the city.
Later in December,We started with the fabric sourcing in different cities and started with mock garment once that was approved,we proceeded with the final garment where in we had used "Reversible sequins,Animal printed Organza and Faux Leather" . The show happened at NEW YORK on 9th of FEBRUARY 2019.
Altogether it was one of the most amazing journey of our life . As a designer receiving the NYFW certificate was a very emotional day in our lives . We would like to thank INIFD Chennai and our Center Director Ms.S Fareeda Khan for always being there and supporting us.
