The INIFD Launchpad show is one of the most awaited shows by student designers. It is an opportunity for student designers to transfer their artistic knowledge from their from class desks to the ramps of prestigious Lakme Fashion Week. 20 student designers were selected from out of 1000 students across the country.

Bollywood actor and Bigg Boss 7 winner Gauahar Khan donned creations by our city girls Samiksha Chouhan and Yashika Chugh from the Department of Fashion Design, INIFD. Another student Aakash Verma from the Department of Interior Decoration closely worked with renowned show directors of the industry to design sets of fashion shows.

Samiksha & Yashika’s designs were inspired from street style dressing coastal town Puducherry. Their collection was named PUTU PUKKAL offering a delightful charm into the multi-layered wonderful mix of local and French cultures.

The collection offered comfortable, reversible and convertible outfits in linen in fresh colours of yellow and lime green. Handcrafted techniques of appliqué work, cut work, hand embroidery, and hand painting were also incorporated.

The old-world charms of Puducherry lie in its distinctive yellow walls, French architecture, Big French windows, the wild bougainvilleas, and the most important common feature that runs through the entire town, the love for art, graffiti, and artistic flair.

Aakash on the other hand got first-hand exposure, practical experience and intense insight into the planning, installations, and execution process involved in the designing of sets on such a huge platform.

Eminent designers like Rajesh Pratap Singh, Satya Paul, Anamika Khanna, Shantanu & Nikhil, Pankaj & Nidhi, Abraham & Thakore, Shyamal & Bhumika, Rina Dhaka, Gaurav Gupta to name a few, unveiled their latest collections at the Lakme Fashion Week.
