Unleashing creativity!

A phenomenon which is inevitable, which can mask itself either to be the most sought after or to be most frowned upon, which signifies existence and livelihood is ‘Change’. To embrace and to accept change is a matter of grace and understanding, while to cause the change involves identification, acknowledgement, creative innovations and implementation. With an intent to embrace ‘Change’, JD Institute of Fashion Technology presented various works on the same lines. Students aspired to change the existing norms of negligence which have led to cause glitches with a fresh breeze of thoughts for betterment of people and environment to invest in a sustainable future with responsibility. Sustainability, in its true sense, does not limit to the usage of materials, but it extends leaps and bounds in terms of development, concepts, techniques, and much more. As responsible designers, our students have taken an initiative to work on concepts which revolve around developing sustainable clothing in order to promote holistic living, sanitation, mental and physical health as a part of social sustainability, and human values. Ecological sustainability is a topic of importance too, where the acknowledgment of the concepts that emphasizes on adaptability, growth, and consistency enables to form a sustainable cycle. Through eco-friendly materials and products, design techniques, and creative ideas, an attempt is made to encourage up-cycling that ensures reduced wastage and promotes ethical fashion.
