To exemplify all the elements of glamour and style, Lakme Fashion Week marked a perfect beginning for the summer time which lies ahead of us.


Institute of Design & Technology, an art & recreational center, can be highly associated with the fashion, latest trend & fashion designing because of its best foot forward for optimum outputs in every fashion related segment, so how can we left this opportunity.


IDT Surat has made a novel benchmark in the arena of fashion education by making its presence at India’s most prestigious fashion and trade event-Lakme Fashion Week 2013-Summer Collection. It has provided great opportunity to its students for being a part of this promising show in both summer as well as winter Collection from the last 3 Years.


The much awaited fashion extravaganza, Lakme Fashion Week – Summer/Resort 2013 kick-started in Mumbai at Grand Hyatt on 22nd march 2013, Friday till 26th march 2013 Tuesday. The event, which was spread over five days, showcased the wide array of collection by some of the leading designers as well as new breed of designers from fashion fraternity. And IDT students were exposed to the latest prêt collection of various designers- Asmita Marwa, Narendra Kumar, Debarun, Amalraj Sengupta, Anushka Khanna, Nishka Lulla, Sanjay Hingu, Rimi Nayak, Javed Khan, Purvi Doshi, Payal Singhal, Purvi Doshi, Pooja Kapoor, Vijay Bhalara & Archana Kochhar, from all the five days.


The whole show was mesmerizing be it the models that cat walked on the ramp attiring designer clothes or be it the source area exhibiting the innovative fashion silhouettes. IDT students couldn’t move their eyes from the sizzling showstoppers- Shriya Saran (Actress), bollywood star- Varun Dhavan, Actor Rohit Roy, Gaurav, Indian Idol Superstar- Meiyang Chang & the very fragile beauty bollywood’s talent darling Parineeti Chopra who gracefully glided down the ramp.


The students got candid with the Ace Designer- Manish Malhotra, Mayank Anand, Shraddha Nigam, Rohit Bal, Archana Kochhar, & many more. On each & every stall, the students spent 10-15 minutes & gathered knowledge about the fabrics, colors & designs. All the designers were very cooperative & showed their great interest in our students. The entire source area proved to be informative & of great help to our fashion students.


IDT Surat takes the plunge into this great event, so that students come to know about the Couture’s of well-known & upcoming designers. For that, we ask our students to submit a project report based on the profile of the particular designer they will be attending as well as their experience in the Lakme Fashion Week.


Imagehas really left spark in the hearts & minds of IDTians, be it students, staff or faculties & it’s a lifetime memory that every one of us will cherish.


I hope that this journey from IDT Surat to Grand Hyatt continues & we could be a part of more such fascinating fashion shows & keep on sharing such mind-blowing experiences with you!!!

Yippee! IDT Students Fashion Passion @ Goa Carnival 2013

An unfading memory to last forever at The Coolest Place in India, its GOA…….Yeaahhh….

IDT grabbed the golden opportunity to organize the fashion show in GOA, the one stop destination for all the people across the world, on 26th Feb 2013 taking “Goa Carnival” as its theme for the launch party of Marvel, The large Production house of Roller Blinds, Bamboo Blinds, and Curtain Rods & Tracks, at Cidade de Goa…

IDT students worked on two amazing themes- one was Jazzy Bay in which they took colorful sheer fabrics for designing colorful beach wear costumes, enhanced with crafts, leaves , flowers, draped couls, hangings, gathers skirts, short handkerchief skirts & also highlighted them with beautiful unique props.

The other one was Secret Glamour in which they designed white transparent tissue gowns, enhanced with pure white satin, crochet flowers, potlis, drapes, pleated jackets, and corsets with flowy-fall on stage.

The sequences which the students designed were out of the world.  Hats off to the students- Nidhi Jain, Sonal Gangwani, Himani Chugh, Jasmina Kapadia, Poonam Jain, Neha Kochar, Vaishali Patel & Khushbu Bhojani; & the faculties as well- Mrs. Pooja Gheewala & Ms. Meghna Jariwala. Hearty Thanks to the models & the choreographer- Mr. Keyur Desai.

ImageA collective spirit of revelry seemed to possess one and all, the melodious music rendered the air and a jolly mood overwhelmed all other senses. There were also live musical performances along with international dances & carnival fest which we celebrated.

The entire venue was decorated will huge installations at major junctions and the promenades were decorated with masks and graffiti.

We left no stone unturned to take the 2013 carnival experience to a heightened level of excitement and entertainment. It is one of our biggest events of the year. I hope that this event becomes the second-most popular event of IDT SURAT after FASHIONOVA 2012.

It was really a fun-filled & joyful adventure.
