On Thursday, November 1st DGPS students from grade 11 & 12 took part in the ‘Sustainable Fashion Challenge-2018’ held at The College of Fashion & Design, Bay Square, Dubai. The event was co-organized by ‘The Young Vision’. The students were accompanied by the Art teachers Ms.Maria & Ms.Vijita.
The competition comprised of three categories; Up-cycling, Reconstruction and Zero waste. Competing in each category were around 40 to 50 teams who showcased their prolific abilities at redesigning mundane outfits to the judges. Out of the 4 teams that participated from our school, 3 teams were selected for the final round consisting of Ramp Walk and Question & Answer Session.
Sneha Kanth (Designer) and Abigail Dudley (Model) from Year- 12 bagged the 2nd place in the Category – Reconstruction Fashion.
Laisha Hirandani (Designer) and Mihika Udhani (Model) from Year -11 got the 3rd place in the Category -Up Cycling Fashion.
Indeed, it was a proud moment for our school as all of the participating students showed exceptional talent in designing wearable & sustainable fashion. Krishi and Shania’s team, Nandini and Saumya’s team were appreciated by the judges and other participants for their interesting designs.
The event was a great learning experience for the participants and made them mindful of the wastage produced by the clothing/fashion industry.
