Internship opportunity with Fascino Kids Fashion Week 2019

Right from our very first day at ICF, we have been gaining experiences in the fashion world and this July got us one very exciting one.

An opportunity to work at the Fascino Kids Fashion Show, an exclusive Fashion Week for children between 3-14 years of age, with a series of interactive workshops leading the participating children with sessions on Personal Hygiene, Etiquettes, Personality Grooming putting forward a holistic, confident personalities on the ramp.

fascino kids

This was an exciting opportunity for me and my other enthusiastic lot of friends since none of us had ever had the experience of handling these little bundles of energies. Glad we all enrolled ourselves for this and were prepared to take this new challenge head-on.

The show was scheduled from 25th-27th of July 2019 and was held at Eros International, Nehru Place.

We were involved from day one….from the trials to training and practice days for the child models and handling schedules for all the participating designers.

Time management was one of the major factors that we needed to learn and report to work an hour early than the kids’ schedule since all the arrangements for the day were to be organized and put in place to avoid any delay or glitch during the sessions.

We were about to be hit with a real challenge of handling small kids throughout the day while helping the Organizers. The kids started to pour in and some of them came in “like a wrecking ball”. Some of the kids were not ready to leave their parents at all and kept wailing and crying. That was truly a challenge, to get them separated from their mothers, get them changed and make them practice along with everyone else. But we were not there to give up easily. All through the days this cycle continued, designer after designer, kid after kid, and we would generally wrap up the day around at about 9 in the night right after a short meeting with our team heads….just to repeat the whole process every day for the next couple of days; but the second day was less chaotic, thanks to our experiences gained the day before.

Then came the big day, the actual show on Saturday the 27th of July, 2019. We all reported at the venue sharp at 8 am, dressed and ready to work in our Fascino Kids Fashion Show custom t-shirts, that gave us the sense of responsibility to shoulder the brand we were working for.

We began readying up the first lot of kids for our first scheduled show at 11:00 a.m., which was actually delayed by an hour due to technical issues, but hiccups like this are common in such fashion events. With each show, our work gradually got easier, and we had a smooth functioning through the fashion shows……. till the finale show……That was when chaos broke. We ran out of hands to help backstage, and 3 people barely kept the kids in control, but with immense help from one of the team heads, we were able to deliver an amazing finale of the day that was widely appreciated and adored.

The after-party to celebrate the success of the show had us all as a team had us all danced and celebrate the successful line of shows the whole day, and we all retired to our homes in groups and pieces, to finally rest our feet which had been working on and on through the week.

Even though the whole experience was tiring and we ran out of energy to function by the time we got to leave, it was all worth it when we received our certifications when we rejoined college.

We were also awarded a beaming trophy to represent all the hard work we all collectively put in, and it was truly an amazing moment to be able to hold it in our hands.

The trophy now rests in the office of our Chief Mentor, Ms. Jaivani Bajaj’s office, as a beautiful memory of something so demanding and challenging yet so rewarding and full of knowledge.

This was an experience gained, that will forever be with us all.

A WARM WELCOME TO ICF

Oof! With a mix of thoughts and high spirits I carried the load of my pretty bag and started my day with a classic smile. I rushed through the metro and headed straight to the college. As I moved towards my class, probably every new face I saw could hear me breathe heavily. I entered the class, greeted my new mates and took a seat to catch my breath. Within a moment, my teachers came in with a big smile and I could sense a lovely vibe of aspiring learners ready to embark on this new journey. The teachers introduced themselves and their respective subjects to us in a very semi-formal way. It was way better than I expected it to be. I enjoyed their session as they gave us an inside sneak peak of the industry we were going to step into.

Then arrived the snack break and we were served with some authentic Delhi street food alongside some soft drinks to fill in our young stomachs.

The seniors came in and initiated an ice breaker activity to help us interact and perhaps improve our social skills. We enjoyed playing different character roles, singing, dancing and mimicking comic characters.

The college organized a few designer talks for us to get pumped up with inspiration and zing to work hard and brace ourselves for the course. The teachers seemed so determined and energetic to impart their knowledge to us. This gave me a feeling of satisfaction and that very moment I knew I came to the right place to learn. Down the week, the college had many activities for us. This helped us to get more comfortable with the college atmosphere.

Alumni students dropped in to share their experiences with us and we got a chance to clear out our doubts regarding different job/business aspects after college. The exposure we had in the first week was outstanding. We got exposed to the people from the industry and got to clear view of the life ahead waiting for us.

To be honest, in the beginning, I was a bit apprehensive about college life at ICF. But now, after 3 weeks I can proudly say I am at the right place. This place is a metal and it means education at its best. The teachers are hardcore and willing to give the best they’ve got. I hope to experience a wonderful educational journey with ICF along with memories to cherish throughout my life.

KEY TO SUCCESS: A BUSINESS PLAN

The Business Plan is the blueprint for your business. It describes the products and services, financing, operational model and other aspects of a Business.

Why Write a Business Plan?

We often make the mistake of thinking that a business plan is something you just tick off your ‘to do’ list and then never look at it again. But in reality, the business plan of any business changes over time as the business grows.

Writing a Business Plan is a good way to test if your idea for starting a business is feasible. Having a plan in place can help you accomplish a great deal of work, identify your strengths and weaknesses. It also helps in keeping you focused on your goals.

If you’re looking to raise funds from investors, it’s extremely essential that you write a Business Plan.

I will take you through the steps that one should follow before writing a Business Plan

• Research – It’s very important that you research about your Business Industry, Market, and Competitors which you’re entering in.

• Know your Audience – In the end it’s all about your customers; they’re the ones who are going to buy your product. Research, research, and research about what they like, how they talk, who makes their decisions and a lot more.

• Have a Clear Goal – While writing a business plan you want to keep in mind if it’s a self -funded or a bootstrapped business. It’s going to have different goals if you’re looking to attract investors.

BUSINESS PLAN MUST INCLUDE 

• Company Overview –This Section includes a description of your business and what you’re planning to do. You can include information about your industry, your vision, values, short and long term objectives, your team, their salaries, etc.

• Products & Services –A description about your products and services is mandatory. You can include points like what problem do they solve, why is there a need for your product or service.

• Market Analysis – Market Analysis is a key section of your Business Plan. Have a clear idea of your target market. Competitive analysis can help you plan how to be better than your competitors. SWOT Analysis will help you analyse your Strength & Weaknesses, so you can use your strengths to your advantage and look for ways to improve in the areas where your Business is weak.

• Marketing Plan – Your marketing plan would depend on your target audience, their likes and dislikes, what are their needs, what would urge them to buy your product and so on. Focus on the ideas that fit your ideal customer. For example: If you’re planning on investing in Facebook ads, you must research if your target audience is actually using the platform. Email Marketing, Social Media Marketing are some of the ways you can include in your Marketing Plan.

• Operations –Operations include the work you need to get done to get your ideas turned into reality. Your Inventory, Suppliers, Shipping Partners, Equipment, etc. are all a part of this Section.

 • Financial Projections – If you’re planning to attract investors or writing a business plan for yourself, Finances of a company are the most important part. Finances can make or break a company. It is important that you include and work on your Income Statement, Cash Flows, and Balance Sheet.

• Executive Summary – It’s an overview, snapshot of your Business. This should be the last section you write in a business plan. Highlight the key points like a brief description of your business, goals, vision, product description, audience, marketing plan, financials, team etc.

Having discussed why a business plan is important, what is more important is taking ACTION! Taking action to turn your ideas into reality.

ILLUSTRATION DILEMMA

illustration1

Most of the people believe that only if we have a good hand on paper(artwork), we can become a good designer. People judge designing by the skills of their hand and not with their imaginations, but it’s true that this is a crystal clear myth. To become a good designer, there’s no requirement to be good enough with the shades, colors, proportion, anatomy, etc; it’s just that you have to be good and creative enough with your thought. The more they will be ingenious, the more you will be able to make-believe it better on paper. This dilemma that people have in their mind sometimes create a barrier between their ideas and it’s implementation. Moreover, their confidence also gets affected by the same.

 illustration2

It is necessary to have one signature style that defines you and that could be your own  stylized croqui. It could have:

•Different skin colors
•Different strokes
•Various proportion
•Various accessories
•Various features
•Various foot wears
•Various hairstyles
•Various backgrounds
•Various captions, and more

illustration4

With these kind of techniques and textures you can implement and define your own language towards design and illustration with your own sense of style. Every designer and person in himself has to be different with his own specialized skill set and this could a trademark and signature style as well. It depends how you promote and advertise yourself.
So the dilemma is gone far away now and the focus should be more on design, fabric, color, forecast, implementation and promotions for it.
Journaling every second thought will help your grow more towards the design and to express yourself as well. Designers today are not only designers; they are artists, poets, tourists, travelers and much more. They don’t have only one role, there are thousands of them and each one of it has to be described and expressed at it’s best on the paper. That’s how it will help find special identity in a designer.

The Best Institute for Fashion Designing

When it comes to choosing an institute for fashion designing there are two things that every aspirant must focus on. The first is of course the obvious – the institute should harness your creativity and offer you exposure that will help you grow your ideas. At International College of Fashion (ICF) we create the most conducive environment for you to express your creativity and fine tune it for the competitive market outside. What separates us from other institutes is ‘second’ thing that we inculcate in every student i.e. in-depth understanding of the business side or economics of this industry.

If you take a close look at our course program and compare with some of the other colleges for fashion designing in India you’d see that we have created the perfect balance between designing and business side of the industry. As you’d already know without in-depth knowledge in either of these you won’t be able to achieve success in this career path. With competition having grown at a tremendous pace over the last decade or so with the entry of several foreign brands and labels into the Indian market your success is often determined by how well you understand the business of fashion.

Develop skills to meet competition
Our core aim has always been to develop the right kind of skills in our students to help them face competition that one is expected to find in the industry. From spotting the trends to developing problem solving skills we focus on overall skill development for our students.

Fostering innovation… 
While every fashion designing college claims of boosting your creativity and innovation the truth is they tie you up with a fixed course curriculum. This is where we offer great room for flexibility in our course program to help you shape the dreams that you bring along and add bigger wings to them.

A step into global world of fashion…
We are an Indian fashion designing college with a global frame of mind. Our aim isn’t merely to help our students find employment in India or start with their entrepreneurial venture but also to make sure they have one foot into the global fashion business. Many of our students have moved abroad and have been able to establish their footprint in this industry.

Come and join us. We shall lay the perfect platform for your success in this competitive industry and write the first chapter in your career’s success.

Leading Fashion Designing College to Boost Your Career

Talk of a career in fashion designing and your eyes open wide thinking about all the gloss and glamour in this career path. After all most of us think of fashion designers as superstars who design the most stunning outfits and grace the ramp after showing their new collection. In reality you will have to rise up a pyramid to reach those levels as a designer. In fact it is one of the toughest career options where there is hardly any room for average designers. Either you are good at it or you will end up with a degree and no career.

To build a flourishing career in this competitive industry you will need to sow the right seeds for your career. You need to prepare for the challenges as you work through your diploma or degree and the college you choose would make or break your career. A good college such as International College of Fashion (www.icf.edu.in) would take you closer to your dreams and help you choose the right career path. It will prepare you all that awaits you in this rewarding yet competitive career path.

Learning the tricks of this trade…            
If fashion designing was all about creativity the best painters and artists would have made the best designers. On the other hand if it was only about sourcing raw materials and turning them into wonderful clothes and accessories, anybody on the streets could have become a fashion designer or an entrepreneur. But to be successful in this business you need to mix creativity with good business senses and most importantly know where to look for the upcoming trends in the market. That’s where a leading fashion designing college would make the difference in terms of teaching you the tricks of this trade.

Preparing for the challenges…  
How do you prepare for the challenges that lay ahead? While reading case studies may help a bit they would never come close to training on how to approach problems and solve them. You will have to work in the industry to gain experience and that’s where internship comes to your help. Few weeks of internship will help you experience the industry across its different verticals from up-close and you’d know what to expect when you start your career in the industry.

And before we conclude the kind of exposure you’d get at a leading fashioning designing college is incomparable. They not only help you find a good job but boost your career by laying a strong foundation for you to build on.

Moschino and H&M Collection

Indians are always fond of fashion in this 21st century and if we look up to our youth, they teach us a lot about confidence and fashion together. Moreover, this time the collaboration of Mochino and H&M has made this year full of pop and creativity. The news about their collaboration came in April 2018 stating that they will be releasing their first collection together soon. This created an excitement factor among Indians who are very fond of products from Italian Fashion Luxury.

From tracksuits to bold accessories,  there is something for everyone from Rs.799 to Rs.30,000 which was expected from Jeremy.  The collection is all about OOTT outfits which is full of joy, creativity, fun and pop. Indians are already very attracted to H&M for its comfort, affordability, style statements and the trends, and by the collaboration with Moschino this year, the excitement among youngsters to show up their look in every possible manner has gone to another level.

“We love to connect our designer collaborations to the mood of the times,” H&M’s creative advisor, Ann-Sofie Johansson added of the partnership. These days fashion is so bold, so energized and so much about making a statement with what you wear.

“Jeremy Scott is all about having the best time with fashion. His work has such positivity, optimism and his amazing sense of humor, all of which makes Moschino [tv] H&M so special.”

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.
