Day 5

Pearl Academy 

Pearl Academy  showcased a design collaboration of its graduating class of 2020 from School of Fashion at the FDCI and Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week (LMIFW).

Titled ‘Fashion Reboot’, it was the only students-led show amidst displays by senior designers such as Rina Dhaka, Rahul Khanna, Neeta Lulla, Tarun Tahiliani and Suneet Verma during the five-day phygital fashion extravaganza. 

Mentored by Antonio Maurizio Grioli, Dean, School of Fashion and faculty members, the students curated ‘Fashion Reboot’- a collection of ensembles they designed to reflect the fierce expressions and youthful essence that are signature to the Gen Z.

As part of this on-going collaboration, Pearl Academy students get up, close and personal access to the vast knowledge and experience of fashion veterans at FDCI. The students receive continuous opportunities to interact and learn from them through masterclasses, live industry projects, internships and fashion forecasting immersions. The two organizations are also exploring online courses and inclusion of digital aspects of fashion as digital-first has become the new normal. 

Trained as per the industry requirements, Pearl Academy fashion students get recruited by organizations and fashion designers like H&M, Myntra, Globus, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, PUMA, Aditya Birla, Forever New, Neeta Lulla, Gauri & Nainika, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Renyu Tandon and more. Some of the Pearl alumni who have carved a niche for themselves in the fashion industry include Rimzim Dadu, Nikhil Mehra of Shantanu&Nikhil designer duo, Mandira Work and Sumiran Kabir Sharma.
