WHAT’S NEW IN JANPATH…

We all know that we live in world which changes around us every second and in fashion, every micro second. Our way to explore is not only caged up with the internet, we like to roam around. And that what we we did in Janpath, in all the shops till our feet got pain and box of mind got full of ideas. We moved to the handloom house there and saw the kanthas, phulkaris and many more works with their history and process.

The people told us about the region it belongs to, their work, and the role of our textile ministry in it. When we ever move to the street markets like these, we never feel the help of our internet to know trends. We saw a lot of accessories and handloom with vibrant colors blooming this year in the market.

Janpath itself taught a lot about the mix and match and tricks of the communication that sellers use. Following the trend from last year, this time as well we could see  a lot of mustards, turquoise, blues, neutrals and pastels appearing in the markets. Basket weaves, tucks and pleats in a-lines, straights with the ruffled and bishop sleeves mostly will make this year colorful and elegant and that’s what Janpath market’ told us that day.

The world out there is another dimension in itself where every character is unique and has its own style of complimenting the society. Every season, this week creates a lot of employment as well. It’s not only about hitting the ramp, but there are a lot of hopes, excitements, enthusiasm, creativity, efficiency, rebel and confidence. I am different and many more moods just appear together in this week.

The social media gets crazy with the postings and uploading. A lot of people, who cannot make up to the event, wait eagerly for the images to get uploaded on social media so that they can see their admirer in beautiful attires at the earliest. Every celebrity, entrepreneur, socialist, models, journalists and what not, you meet every possible person you ever wanted to meet out there.

The hard work of the designers shows the dedication of what people will like.

INKTOBER

Here comes October or I should say ‘Inktober’! In 2009 Jake Parker started Inktober, a popular annual celebration of ink drawing during the month of October. In 2014′s Inktober, over 100,000 inked images were tagged on Twitter by participating artists. Inktober continues to be a popular social media phenomenon in 2018, with people appreciating the positive drawing habits and creativity that the concept of Inktober brings out.

INKTOBER RULES…

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it online

3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2018

4) Repeat

Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. Whatever you decide, just be consistent with it. Inktober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.

VIJAYA ASWANI

Vijaya Aswani is an illustrator who belongs to Bangalore. She is a great observer yet creates a pun in her every illustrated art. This Inktober, Vijaya participated in an exhibition in Bangalore where she came up with her creations like bookmarks, stamps, cards, and many more. Vijaya has an ability to just observe the people and illustrate its funny side instead of portraying them. She has her Instagram account named @spreefirit and owns a website www.spreefirit.com with 6,850 followers following her.

She says that, ‘Spreefirit is the heart child of Vijaya. She expresses feelings and emotions through her weapons of mass creation viz. pencils and E-eccentric sense of humour.

Her aesthetic celebrates our idiosyncrasies and imperfections, making quirky drawings of feelings the real portrayal of humans, free from all existential dread.’

According to Vijaya, an illustration is a way to express oneself with a pun in it that makes it attractive and expressive. People like Vijaya Aswani have taken art to another level. Inktober is a time of year where all the ‘arty’ people participates and celebrates it with the INK.

Alliances: The vision of future fashion industry

In an industry known for its aggressively viable and fast moving spirit, designers, retailers, brands and manufacturers need to welcome collaborations in order to stay alive.

Alliances through high street retailers, as per WGSN report, has been a stimulating way for brands to strike into modern fashion – or a celebrity’s fashion statement of the time. So why do the industry biggies so resist a collaboration both at the fore front or the back-end of the businesses?

Alliances will always impact businesses on the whole from day one. From merchandise, sources, practices, trades, philosophy to maintaining the business. At every phase of the existing workflow, it becomes critical to look at more spontaneous, imaginative and collective interpretations for the teams involved.

The need for partnerships arises at the initial stages, where style and inspirations unite music, art, photography and consumer-led muse with marketing acumen, business practice and not to forget the ‘gut feeling’ for the magical mishmash: freshness and salability.

Brands that have methods or structures to enable partnerships build ethos of adding up and empowering effortlessly – finally resulting in the quality of merchandise. When players are given noticeable prominence, and have easy ways to collaborate, the way that merchandise created is well-organized and driven, with energies and facts brought to line and allocated promptly.

More so, the capacity for brands to buy merchandises that actually sell and do not end up on sale or in landfills, is a critical issue. Figures shown in various reports talk of brands like H&M destroying £28M of stock in FY 17/18, or the $38Bn dead stock projected in the US every year reveal the real costs.

Hence, there is a rudimentary prerequisite for organizations and alliances around the stocks utilized – currently, right from designs, samples, or even yarns etc. are stacked away into distinct divisions and saved as compendiums or records.

What is being overlooked by the industry by not creating its own ingenious partnerships, allowing the coordination instead of perplexing or protecting their own assets?

This organically takes us through an imperative and crucial want for an enduring evolution of the way we work and how have our past systems influenced on the sustainability of the fashion industry. Procedures that have steered the production means and yields have created havoc, not only on the climate but also transversely towards societies overhauling the fashion industry. Only if the digital age today has educated us on something, it is how much more answerable we have to be with the tangible resources that we have, along with the valuable means it takes to create them.

This subject has always been in question in the past on whether or not the end customers worry on how the reserves are utilized – Thank god it’s beginning to change. We all recognize that it is not for the user to choose how the industry works – it is for the industry to be preemptive and make mindful choices that will revolutionize the effect and after-effects of our ways of work. Fashion however is a global business that has always worked through pool resources at some point or the other. The potential of the Fashion industry is hinged onto the industry to take inter-business alliances to new statures – with new ambitions.

Fashion Trends for guys 2018

Dressing up for college can either be a simple procedure for guys out there or can be a nerve-racking process depending on your preferences. On one hand you have those who’s daily choice of clothing depends on what is on the top of the shelf or in some scenarios what is the item which smells the least. On the other hand, you have those who put it a lot of effort into their clothing because they want their clothing to portray their identity. It not needs to be an attire but a statement.

Now why does the person in the first scenario not put in any effort in dressing and why does the person in the second scenario put in so much effort? These are not questions we are trying to answer here. We believe that no matter what everyone should have a chance to express themselves through their attires and should have a good time doing it.

So here are a few tips to make it easier for you dress up on days when you don’t want to think a lot about your dressing and at the same time make the statement you want to be making:-

  • Class it up

The next time you reach for you daily t-shirt wait for a minute and ask yourself whether this is what you want to be your statement. In place of the t-shirt try and reach out to the polo shirt right beside it as could be a classier option with its clean cuts and form fitting shape.

  • Dark denims (clean)

There was once a time when jeans which were extremely distressed in terms of fabric and the rips were the order of the day. Luckily (or not) those days are past us. Today the statement you should be making is clean, calm and composed and it is a bit difficult to do that wearing jeans in which your knees are popping out. So, get yourself a pair of dark denims which will go well with almost everything in your wardrobe.

  • Statement socks

The simplest way to make your ankles look pretty. Before you say anything, yes, they do need to look pretty. Statement socks are catching on fast and it isn’t something we can complain about. So, ditch your basic drab socks and jazz up your ankles.

  • A slick watch

Checking your phone for the time is so not cool anymore. Watches speak a lot about the wearer and it is something you should be paying attention to. Your choice of options too are many. Smart watches, fitness watches, chronographs there is a choice for every person.

  • Shoes

Most often the most ignored article of clothing but it does say a lot about you. Ditch those lazy sneakers with everything and start wearing specific clothing with specific looks. Well designed shoes will go a long way.

So, the next time you don’t want to think a lot before dressing yourself maybe take a few hints from the list above and make the statement you want to make in college.

ORIENTATION WEEK MBA FE 2018

Our ICF orientation story began with the instant connection we had with our mentors and were immediately made comfortable. Everyone bonded over the fact that although ICF was a small campus, we were all just as lost and confused. It was fairly easy to make new friends during orientation because despite where we all came from, we were experiencing things we’ve never encountered before, together. Despite not getting a chance to get to know every single person at orientation at a personal level, we merely felt at ease when we later walked through campus and recognized those same friendly faces which we found kind and approachable.

Our first tryst with our future in the world of fashion started with a tête-à-tête with the Industry leaders, addressing our wondering thoughts on our careers in the fashion industry.

Excited about the experience, we stepped into the campus the next day greeted by the seniors, who were there to make our first day at the campus a flawless experience.

The entire week was well planned by our mentors to walk us through some Industry know-how, scenarios and networking with the professionals and our subject guides.

Day 1

Meena Balija

Ms. Meena Balija: Founder of Hand in Hand, visited as guest speaker for our first day of orientation week. We all were extremely delighted by her knowledge and thoughts. She very well explained how to start a business by pre-planning with the right resources. We all were very glad to have her gesture.

Day 2

We were blessed to have this day included in our orientation week. As it was Teacher’s Day we came to know about our college faculties better.

Altogether, it was a fun day with lots of dance, drama and determination.

Day 3

Praveen Tiwari

This day was more about interaction with our guest speaker and college faculties. Firstly, we had Mr. Shivraj, owner of Label AASK. He began the session by introducing himself and gave a brief on his label. Further up, we had an interactive session in which students asked questions which they had in their minds related to fashion and entrepreneurship.

Day 4

Vikas Malik

As we moved along time to our orientation week, it was more into creating enthusiasm. Firstly, we had Mr. Vikas Malik, the owner of label ‘House of Tara’, as our guest speaker today. He portrayed his journey in a very mesmerising manner that we all were charged with positive vibes. It will definitely help us to go through to all ups and downs in our entrepreneurial journey.

Next up, we had Mr. Praveen Tiwari, a weaving technologist, to introduce us to the textiles and how to identify them. Weaving was in the bloodline of their generations. He explained about Indian Handlooms and Power-looms with samples, he also introduced us to the varieties of textiles.

We enjoyed our orientation week. It was very learning and inspiring from all the guest speakers and faculties. Hope their words will be throughout with us in our own entrepreneurship journey as well.

ORIENTATION WEEK BBA FE

In the week of fashion’s orientation, the students are really excited to learn more and more! And like every year, ICF here gave it’s students a warm welcome. On the Monday of our orientation’s week, all the students went to Delhi Haat to learn, explore and find out what their stream of interest is. Students were really enthusiastic and curious to know about the product from the scratch till its final version. The outing was totally filled with explorations, observation and not to miss the shopping and food.

 OUR LAST GENERATION OF THE 90s[TASK]

As they are the last generation of the 90s, they were supposed to give a presentation of their role models in fashion and were supposed to dress up like 90s. The fun part in the air of ICF was the appearance of students in 90s. They were literally in their role.

DAY1

Manu Sachdeva

On Day 1, our newcomers met two renowned designers Manu Sachdeva and Bharti Mishra. Manu Sachdeva shared the journey of his designing career till now. The journey enlightened a lot about the struggle, hard work and the tasks the students will have to perform in their everyday life to grow in the fashion world. The session was really helpful for our students and even encouraged them a lot. Bharti Mishra, who is specialized in textiles, told them about the fabrics by relating the culture of India with the techniques and colors of our country.

DAY 2

Kriti Mehta

The second day was really enthusiastic and fun. Students met their own reality that how creative can they become and what can they do with their skills. Ms. Kriti Mehta, faculty of ICF, helped out the students to open up and to feel free with their ideas by a game named ‘GO ON’. The game was about to make something and hide it partially so that the second person continues it by creating something else. At the end of the day, they met a designer Mona Kapoor again with an interesting story.

DAY 3

Day 3 was fun to go out. Our newcomers went to the Doll Museum to explore the art in their surroundings with faculty with a heart of ‘let’s look something for fun’, Mrs. Sunita Chauhan. Apart from this, the guest speaker for the day was Ms. Oshana Kewal, Photographer and Multidisciplinary Designer. She graduated from NIFT Delhi in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in fashion communication. Ms. Kewal addressed the class with her experiences and gave a lot of tips regarding fashion.

DAY 4

gulbash-dugal

Day 4 it was! This day was somewhere more special, as it was started by our Prof. Gulbash Duggal, again with a fun activity. The day went forward with a guest speaker  Mr. Mayank Sehgal, an ex-Pearlite, who has his own designer label. He explained a lot of interesting elements of the struggle of a designer’s life. The day ended well with a small talk by Mr. Vinod Kaul. He is a really experienced man in the industry and has worked with a lot of known brands like Louise Phillipe, FDCI, Benetton and more.

Day 5

IMG_6813

The last day of the orientation week came up with a sunshine as the students got addressed by designers Ms. Sneha and Ms. Ankita. These designers ended up the orientation week with a bag full of knowledge for our newcomers.

We wish our newcomers all the very best for their journey with ICF and hope that they make the most out of the opportunities that they’re going to get in here and make ICF proud.

Autumn Winter wear for men 2018

Fashion is a universal commodity. Thinking about it, fashion is probably the only universal language out
there. Consider this. One look at a person and you already have formed an opinion about the person, his
tastes, his dislikes, his personality and everything. If that is the case then, shouldn’t you dress in a manner
which speaks in the way you want it to speak and nothing else? First impressions are important and you
want to make sure that you make the impression you want and nothing else. So, this autumn we bring you
the hottest new trends to choose from, to make that great first impression.

The colour brown
Okay, right off the bat, let’s agree that brown may not rate as high on the sexy scale as something
like navy blue or grey, but brown, brings to the table a whole new range of possibilities. It is a
neutral tone which doesn’t need to remain dull, as this season, you could explore the full range of
shades, brown offers, including tan and a rich mahogany. So, try adding a splash of brown to your
outfit and see it become a little more sophisticated and stand out from the crowd.

The beauty of random
In fashion it is always thought that a certain degree of thought and preparation needs to go into
the outfit. But what if the anti-thesis was true too. This is something which seems to be a big hit
this AW. This style of dressing is more popularly also known as scumbro. It is more than a bit
difficult to explain this style as it literally is the most random thing ever. The art to nailing this
look, is to throw together the most random things, accessorise it and then carry it with the utmost
confidence.

Denim shirts
Rarely are there fabrics as versatile as denim, and rarely is there a piece of clothing as versatile as
a denim shirt. Depending on its cut and fit, the shirt can either be a formal shirt, which is worn
tucked in, or if its looser and hangs off your shoulders, then you should consider it for a night out
on the town. The best part? The weather makes this the perfect choice.

The 90’s are back
The 90’s are back in a big way and not the things we regret. This season sports’ wear from the
90’s has been brought back in the form of full tracksuits. A few more must haves in your closet
include some cool oversized sneakers and some fugly hats. Here’s a tip, combine all of them
together and have a very cool look which stands out like nothing before.

So, go ahead and make a statement with the hottest fashion trends this season while making the statement
you’ve always wanted to make.

How to choose your personal style

Everything is beautiful. By this, I know I really sound a bit weird, but it makes sense. Coming to fashion, it’s a fast growing sector in the world. Everyone has their own personal style. Wait, are you getting curious to know what your style is? Let me help you!

To build a personal style, you must be comfortable with your own skin and body. Yes, this is a must. You must not feel shy or uncomfortable when you’re in the fashion game. It’s time to experiment with everything you find new.

Secondly, know your skin complexion and body type. You must be fully aware of this, because it’s going to be a key factor.

Now, know your mindset. For example, if you’re a girly girl, you would mostly like ethnic, floral prints or something embroidered. If you’re a ‘not so girly girl‘, probably you’ll like boyfriend jeans, loose tees, and sneakers. If you’re a mix of both, VOILA!!! You can literally wear anything.

According to your skin complexion, pastel colours would be your saviour if you’re fair. Choose an ethnic or a casual piece, and you’re good to go. For medium, dusky and wheatish complexions, bright colors may look better on you. To be honest, every kind of jewellery looks good on you. Remember, not to go over the top as it makes you look weird. For dark complexions, you can mix up such things like, a kurti and skirt, white tee and blue jeans or something Indo Western. Go minimalistic for jewellery.

Coming to the body type! If you’re someone who’s too skinny, opt for fabric which makes you look a bit weighed. If you’re a bit fat or especially some of your body parts look fat, you should go with lighter fabrics and minimal jewellery. If you’re someone in between, choose one piece clothing, a statement jewellery item, and you’re good to go.

Over and above all this, remember to have confidence in yourself because no one can be you and you cannot be anyone. Always be comfortable in whatever you wear. Keep smiling to maintain an aura wherever you step in. Because these two, will always make you stand unique.

KRITIKA KHURANA

known as ‘THATBOHOGIRL’ is a famous Indian fashion blogger. She’s an inspiration for me and for many others as well. Her bohemian style inspires me the most. Being a fashion student, I always wanted to be a fashion stylist, and my all-time inspiration is ‘THATBOHOGIRL’ whose style is classic and bohoic. Bohemian style, referred to as ‘boho’ or ‘boho chic’ is a style which means ‘comfort’- often loose fitting, flowy clothes, or often worn in layers. Let’s have a look at some of her boho styles.

kritika-khurana

In the first picture, where she has styled herself in an off-shoulder brown top, with a bohemian silver jewellery, a classic sling with loose pants is a boho look in itself.

kritika-khurana-1

In the second picture, she has styled herself again with a bohemian look silver jewellery as she loves that kind of stuff and can be seen in most of her pictures.

Having a look at her last picture, which is her shoot with ‘ONLY’ is all about ‘layers’.
