Interested applicants can submit their entries through multiple platforms including handing in the official Competition Form (hard copy) or via e-mail, Facebook, or the PAF website, by May 7, 2011 to be in the running for these awards. Participants will then receive an invite to the competition’s second phase and the Grand Finale on 14 May 2011, which will also see a dazzling display of fashion by a talented group of Malaysian design students.
Mr Arindam Das, Director, Pearl Academy of Fashion, Jaipur said: “Fashion is all about creativity and this should be expressed in multiple ways. Pearl Academy of Fashion is excited about creating this unique platform for young students to express themselves creatively. Our goal is to train professionals with a comprehensive range of cognitive and intellectual skills, planned to develop across a wide range of learning experiences. This competition is just one step in that direction.”
