Thursday August 3, Kolkata: Students of INIFD Lindsay Street Campus organized their annual interior and fashion exhibition from Thursday August 3 to Saturday August 4, 10.30am to 4pm. The annual show was inaugurated by Tollywood celebrities Gaurab Chakraborty, Gargi Roychowdhuri and Owner/Director Mr John Mantosh amidst much cheer from the talented students.
The theme for the interior designing students was Kindergarten as a tribute to the first stage of human life when children start learning about the world around them. Under the name “Kidd Buzz”, there were four sections of kindergarten – dramatic area with graphic art on walls and a castle for storyteller, honeycomb area, literacy and math section and block and art section.
This was followed by “Kalavithi” – the land of imagination and creativity. In the section, the students displayed their handmade creations that included attractive paintings, modern art and miniatures made from newspaper, broken glass, plastic bottles, wood etc.
Tollywood Actress Gargi Roychowdhury was all praises for the Annual Exhibition at INIFD. “This exhibition brings back memories of my school days, the excitement in the eyes of students, the creativity in their products and the warmth cannot be expressed in words. My best wishes to all the students.”
Actor Gaurav Chakraborty said, “The Annual Exhibition is so wonderfully done, the lovely textures that are used, the kind of potential the students exhibit is just amazing and I hope they achieve success by leaps and bounds.”
“We are very proud of our students. They are exceptionally talented and like every year this batch too will achieve great heights in the future.,” said Mr John Mantosh.
The students of fashion designing worked on the theme of “Exploring our Roots” that went back to understanding the native cultures and indigenous tribes. With globalization spreading its tentacles far and wide, every individual is becoming only an echo of each other leading to Acute Cultural Confidence Deficiency leading to frustration and confusion about one’s own identity. The students intended to redefine civilization through a bonding of the urban and the jungle culture and show that civilization demands not only a progression towards a better identity but also to hold the beauty of one’s own. Some of the tribal societies that inspired the students include Ladakhi (J & K), Samburu(Kenya), Kazakh(Mongolia), Singpo(Assam), Huli(Papua New Guinea), Mustang(Nepal), Tibetans(China), Goroka (Papua New Guinea), Rabari (Gujarat) and Gauchos (Argentina).
INIFD Lindsay street campus students are power houses of talent and enthusiasm, the students here are excited about their annual exhibition.The textile students, Rownia and Dipika said, “Each of the genre of fashion designing has its own inspiration, lengthy process and a lovely process.”
