Talent on display

The aim of Chrysalis is to bring out and showcase the creative talents of undergraduate students in a competitive environment. The students got a word of advice from the chief guest Brigadier P S Ravindranath as well as the guest of honour Deepika Govind. Deepika shared some practical experiences with the students.

The contest requires the participants to design and stitch the garments by themselves within 48 hours at the institute itself.
The participants have to choose from four categories and all their designs should fit into any of those categories.

They are contemporary, tailored coats and suits, wearable art and evening wear. The designs will then be judged by a jury comprising of eminent fashion designers and professionals from the fashion industry like Deepika Govind, Pallav Chandra and Sonac Senbarat on the concluding day.

Akshata, a final year student from KLE College said: “My theme is graffiti. I am going to use shades of electric pink, blue, green and black. I am having fun in the process of designing and stitching clothes. It is a little hectic but it’s ok as I am enjoying it.” Every student has his or her own theme.

 Govind Kumar Singh, a final year student from National Institute of Fashion Technology said, “I am working on bright colours with frills all over my garment. My theme is garden, so majority of my colours are all related to plants and flowers. I am very much excited about my creation and I am also having fun in the process.”
