Dipped in a stunning style of fashion with spark of brown and golden look, students of IDT and fashion designer Archana Kochhar presented the “Ahmisa Resama” which is an amalgamation of global silhouettes with ethnic and traditional embroideries. This collection is a mélange of rich Indian & traditional gold zari thread, intellectual texturing techniques. The colour flows in the nude palettes of beige and ivory offset with rose gold embellishments accompanied by neat structured tailoring.

Anupam Goyal, Director, IDT said, “We at Institute of Design and Technology (IDT) are proud to be associated with such a reputed fashion designer like Archana Kochhar. Moreover, after our synergy for various Surat and Mumbai based shows, we are glad to participate with her in New York Fashion Week 2015. Also the presence of Indian produced fabric at an international runway will certainly promote it in the global market and ultimately encourage its production.”
