In a first, final year fashion design students from INIFD presented their collection in collaboration with the London School of Trends at the 7th season of the New York Fashion Week.

The collection, titled 'Indian Fashion Trunk', consisted 52 pieces which were sent down the runway.

"The designs were based on 'Craftsmanship of the Future'. To capture the spirit of India with students coming from diverse backgrounds, they were focused on fall-winter trends for 2022. It depicted the rich culture, indigenous craftsmanship, art, design, and textiles from different states of India. The vibrant colours with rich deep hues and fabrics are one-of-a-kind which highlighted the craftsmanship that makes India a powerhouse source for fashion," said Anil Khosla, CEO, INIFD.

Sharing her experience of showcasing at one of fashion's global capitals, Basudhara Mukhapadhyay, a student in the designing team, told indianexpress.com that "it is a dream come true" for her.

The collection used myriad fabrics and embroidery forms from across India to highlight the diversity of the Indian textile landscape. From mirror work borrowed from Odisha and Gujarat, Bengal's kantha stitch, to Bihar's Madhubani painting, the students expressed that they wanted to bring Indian craft and culture to the spotlight on NYFW's international platform.
