After the release of the collection even the youth spread the Moschino love around whole social media with their own style statements. From bloggers to the celebrities and youngsters the comfort, fun and joy is there all around in parties, get together and on festivals as well. This spread of excitement has told a lot about the consumer behavior towards something out of the box in design and collaboration as well.

LIFE OF AN ENTREPRENEUR

An entrepreneur running a successful business requires a lot of work everyday. Some days entrepreneur might feel like he/she won’t see the fruits of the labor they are putting in, but how is he/she an entrepreneur if he is not a motivator. We read such lines everyday somewhere to get ourselves pumped up but the question is how many of us really remember it in our daily tasks!

life-of-an-entrepreneue

1. Walt Disney: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
You have to have the courage to follow your dreams because there will always be obstacles you have to face before you reach your dream.

2. 37 Signals: “Instead of freaking out about these constraints, embrace them. Let them guide you. Constraints drive innovation and force focus. Instead of trying to remove them, use them to your advantage.”

These people in our lives can be our well wishers, advisors, friends or role models but why is there no ‘myself’ in this? We must remind ourselves everyday that it is only us who are there behind the scenes of every trouble or success and they are the ropes of those people which helps us stand and remain stand in front of every charge. Being a women in India, waking up every morning yet working sounds common these days but the struggle is still there on the high command as an entrepreneur.

‘You think, you wish, you try, you face, you fall, again fall, you stand and then you win!’

Sounds very familiar for those who came forward after winning over it. Every person is rolling on this cycle of work and Kanika Tekriwal as well! The founder of ‘Jet Set Go’  – India’s first online marketplace for private jets and helicopters launched in 2014, by carrying her more than eight years of experience in the aviation industry, she realised the frustration of customers while dealing with charter brokers and operator due to the fact that because of sheer lack of transparency and non-availability of charter planes, customers pay astronomical amounts. It was from here, that the idea to develop JetSetGo started.

JetSetGo is fundamentally re-defining the private aviation business, by creating marketplaces that join the dots between charter customers and operators on one hand and service providers with operators on the other. For Kanika who has beaten cancer and is now entering unchartered territory, the flight to greater heights has just begun.

We have this story and many other stories like this in this world present which are redefining themselves everyday in front of people but it is about you that how you take stories like this among many of them to create yours. If there is a plan to start and to move forward you have to get ready for sleepless nights, to travel, to get your blood pressure stable and of course get crazy for you goal. It is all about you that how are you going to plan everything and even your nights to sleep. Its is necessary to get crazy and to think out of the box, necessary to start working and to plan every stop of yours to go up.

Kanika once said in an interview that you must choose people who are there to learn not to earn. Yes, we all have to remember such things not to be great just to meet great moments. To become a successful entrepreneur you have to have:
Ideas
Plans
Communication skills
Convincing power
Self motivated ability
Positive mind
Backups
and last but not least you always have to remind that ‘Who you are and what you can do the best that no one can? With these no problems will get vanish but surely they will always come with a ready solution to them.

Sarojini Fashion from Sarojini Nagar

On 3rd October, 2018, We the students of BBA(F.E.) first semester visited the Sarojini nagar market to do a market survey. We all reached the place around 11 in the morning, which is usually the time when the market opens. We all collected as a group in front of a store called Big C, which is a popular showroom of clothes in the area. Then to effectively work as a team, we all divided ourselves into smaller groups and began searching through what the market had to offer.

The Sarojini nagar market is a fairly huge market to cover as a whole in one day, with shops offering the latest off-run branded clothes. These are clothes which are rejected from high rise showrooms like Zara, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, Mango, United colors of Benetton, etc. just due to a minute production defect which cannot be sold at the prices and clothing standards such brands offer. Such clothes then trickle down to markets like Sarojini, where they are sold for a lot lower prices but are totally wearable.

Apart from a large number of large sized showrooms for various international and local brands, the crux of the market is formed by street side shops which sell accessories such as footwear, belts, jewellery and garments of all sizes, designs, and colors. In fact, the most famous Export Bazaar/Market for clothes is located in the backstreets of the Sarojini Nagar market. It is surrounded by 3 markets -Subzi Market, Central Market and Mandir wali side. This place is a hub for the trendsetters of colleges, from students with a tight budget, to bored housewives, tourists from other Indian states and even from abroad– they all converge here.

When it comes to shopping in budget, Sarojini Nagar undoubtedly stands to be the perfect destination! It is one of the Delhi’s famous and imperative markets and off course, a fashion destination for every girl who hunts for trendy clothes at killer prices. Right from designer bag to fashionable clothes, Sarojini Nagar never disappoints. And yes, what’s the madness behind shopping without the healthy dose of bargaining? There is no other place that can be as cheap as Sarojini Nagar.

Moreover, the concept of bargaining can be very well experienced at this place. Have you ever thought of purchasing a Mango or Zara apparel at 1/4th of its original prices? If not, then I have to suggest you to visit Sarojini Nagar. Furthermore, it will always stun you with the latest fashion trends, may it be in terms of cuts, style or color – Sarojini Nagar will turn out to be a mindboggling destination. It is always a win-win situation for you and if you’re looking for accessories, belts, clothes, shoes, sling and many more things just at the cost of your pocket money!

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.

AMAZON FASHION WEEK

Talking about this week, yes it’s special. Infact, very special. The India Amazon Fashion Week is happening so who wants to attend the classes! Barely anyone! So we all headed up to the fashion week and attended almost every possible show we got to grab all of it.

IMG-20181013-WA0005

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.

IMG-20181013-WA0015

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 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.

inktober3

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.

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.
