The FDCI X Pearl Academy First Cut show slated for March 21:

Taking forward the relationship this year too, young designers from Pearl Academy, from fashion design, fashion styling. And fashion makeup will showcase their collection at the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week from March 16 to 21, 2021. The show is set to take place on Sunday, March 21st, 2021 at 4 pm. And will be showcased at all the FDCI & LFW channels.

Titled ‘Gender Me Good’, FDCI x Pearl Academy First Cut show revolves around gender fluidity as expression of self.

The concept has been inspired by Judith Butler’s Essay titled ‘Gender Trouble’ and it attempts to break constructs built by society, taking elements from what most consider masculine or feminine.

“Students are the torch bearers of tomorrow as they usher in styles that reflect societal mores. We are happy to continue our partnership with Pearl Academy as the FDCI has been an incubator of talent always providing wholesome opportunities,” said Sunil Sethi, Chairman FDCI.

Speaking about the students’ showcase Mr. Antonio Maurizio Grioli, Dean, School of Fashion says, “We are proud to have showcased our student’s collection as part of ‘first cut’ with FDCI. The event is a successful collaboration between our students from fashion design, fashion styling, and fashion make-up. For the gender-fluid theme, our students responded to the social-cultural landscape by using innovative techniques.”
