Jalandhar:02.06.22- First-year students of the School of Fashion Design & Technology at Lovely Professional University (LPU) researched the dresses of all the Presidents of India, by staying at the Rashtrapati Bhavan (the President’s Palace) in New Delhi. Under a three-day Khadi fabric project, students surveyed top Indian leaders’ typical style and attire in relation to the grandeur of India. This project will indeed be a unique salutation to the topmost Indian leaders by not only using Indian cotton (Khadi) as a textile medium but also recreating unique wears of elegance. Thus, LPU designers’ collection would reflect the distinct style of each of the Indian Presidents, and their individualized sartorial sophistication.

Inspiring the creative students, LPU Chancellor Dr Ashok Mittal shared: “In today’s fashion & textiles industry, designers are always expected to be creative on the cutting edge. On these lines, our students have always played an important part in the world of fashion.” Dr Mittal also informed that celebrating 75 years of India’s Independence; and, keeping up with the ‘Father of Nation’- Mahatma Gandhi’s dream to let ‘Khadi’ be an internationally recognized fabric, LPU students have opted this unique way of designing.

LPU team is now all set to complete the design process, and to further create a complete range of garments, including “Achkans, Sherwanis, Nehru jackets”. All of these will be created from Khadi fabrics to make a mark on the khadi day-the 2nd October. The range will be developed by the students at the modern labs of the university, and an outstanding presentation will be supposedly made before an elite gathering, in New Delhi. Head of the Schools, Prof. Bhaskar Mitra shared that LPU’s fashion design programmes are comprehensive, vocationally oriented and innovatively focusing on the specialized area of designing within a practical environment.
