Expandable garment by Niftians- a boon for parents!

Two students of National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Gandhinagar, Tanvi Gupta and Varsha Ahuja have bought a revolutionary concept of expandable garment for the Indian textile industry. Both the educatees are pursuing their course in Apparel Manufacturing and Information Technology (AMIT).

The garments have the advantage of being opened up to the next size by using different trims and accessories. These attires are expandable from size 3-4 to 5-6, so that the growing child feels comfortable. The designer duo even claims that same concept can be applied to garments for children of any age group.

Tanvi Gupta and Varsha Ahuja have designed the concept as part of their research based project which is done by all the students who are in the 8th Semester in the partial fulfillment of their graduation degree of Bachelor of Fashion Technology in Apparel Production. Tanvi and Varsha successfully completed their training at Arvind Mills, Ahmedabad.

Many textile houses and companies have shown interest in their designs, including GAP and Madura Garments. Now these designers are waiting to see their final products become a huge hit in the market, as there is ample scope in children wear segment.

Experts believe that, the expandable garment has come as a blessing for parents who have to spend huge amounts of money for purchasing garments for their fast growing kids.
