Institute of Fashion Designing (ICF) is the institute that not only teaches course curriculum to students but also believes that it is very important to nurture and nourish the hidden creativity that every individual carries with themselves. Moving on the same line the institute held a fest last week to boost the morale and confidence of these students which was named as “Tarang” a fest that was aimed at nurturing and nourishing creativity of students. Such fests are even more important for artists and craft-workers because it help them think from a different dimension so that they can use their own creativity in their products.
