The cases will highlight prospective issues, challenges, problems and opportunities of the fashion industry. It will also offer indicative and feasible solutions to the challenges.” Considering the huge potential ahead, Indian and international companies eyeing to strengthen their position in the industry will find it a ‘well timed booster’.

 Pawar says being a pioneer institute in fashion and marketing, Pearl hopes to make the competition a platform to interact with researchers, experts and share their knowledge. The institute takes responsibility to offer new approaches to be imbibed; new ideas to be implemented and new strategies to be executed. Understanding and interpreting data which support or challenge the existing or new assumptions should also be one of the many outcomes of the case studies. Pawar adds, “The institute sees fashion as a dynamic entity, something which is not confined to certain class or level. It is the everyday style statement of our aspirations, our longings and perceptual fulfillments which our students imbibe in their works when they undergo the training here.”
