By sharing a slice of my life, I hope to inspire young designers to reach deep within themselves as they pursue their own creative paths.”
All activities were interwoven with the conference theme – Fashion Beyond Borders. Also present for this conference were – Rajeev Sethi of Asian Heritage Foundation, Simon Lock, creative director, Dubai Fashion Week and Jeffry Aronsson, CEO, Emanuel Ungaro, among others.
Speaking during the closing ceremony, Dr AKG Nair, group director, Pearl Academy of Fashion said, “The only conference that attracts national and international design leaders spanning the fashion industry’s varied spectrum, IFFTI 2012, provided all stakeholders an interactive platform across the value chain in fashion and design. The idea behind bringing IFFTI to India was to showcase the universal convergence of fashion and design, while highlighting the enormous potential of the Indian market to the global audience.”
