‘The Design Festival’ is one unique platform by INIFD – the largest global network of design institutes and RISE Worldwide. It’s a series of nationwide 5 day events held bi-annually with a different set of pools of INIFD entries on each day where different Panel of Experts judge the design presentations of INIFD students.
INIFD Fashion Design students had to design garments inspired by ‘Street Style’ originating from the hip-hop culture that incorporates comfortable, casual yet trendy clothing. Whereas, the INIFD Interior Design students had to take inspiration from ‘Future and Fantasy’ to interpret the set design for the fashion shows and translate it with their own aesthetics. Jury members judged the presentation on the basis of thought process, design aesthetics, and theme compatibility.
