Education in fashion

The Institute of Apparel Management launched its multi-varsity academic programme at a function held at the Apparel House recently. The function was attended by high priestess of fashion Ritu Kumar, brand promoter of Kimaya, Pradeep Hirani; the Dean of FMS University of Delhi Prof J K Mitra; Chairman of IAM Premal Udani and Chairman of Apparel House H K Magu, apart from other host of other dignitaries.

The function turned out to be the perfect platform for unleashing a new fashion education paradigm. During the launch function, Darlie Koshy, DG IAM announced the setting up of India’s first fashion innovation lab to enable the students to be trained on a digital platform from ‘concept to consumer’.  The focus will be on developing designers and merchandisers to work on virtual prototyping tools and for undertaking product development and innovation. Koshy informed that the next wave will be in fashion innovation, in an emerging lifestyle context across the world.

 Ritu Kumar advised the students to delve deep into India’s heritage and discover new concepts and ideas for making Indian fashion stand out. Her life’s journey itself is an example of such a quest. Professor J K Mitra underlined the need for connecting culture and consumer behaviour for the Indian consumers.

Do the dude?

It’s a whole new generation out there, with their own way of thinking, dressing and reacting. What’s more they have their own language, which sounds familiar yet
very alien to many of us. Every week Metrolife will feature one common lingo used by the Gen Y.

Dude: This lingo is really an old one and is used to address an individual. For example, “Dude, where are you going?”
The word ‘dudette’ is also used to address a woman, but very rarely. At times this word is also used as an exclamation for something very astonishing or amazingly cool.
But the tone in which it is used makes the difference. For example, when someone says , “Dude, we need to talk,” he or she means business. At the same time if one says, “Duuuuuude, that’s really sweet,” they are amazed.
