Saroj International recognizes NIFT budding designers

Jun '10
Ms. Ishani Capore and Ms. Madhumita Buragohain emerged winners of Saroj International Group Most Commercial Collection Award 2010 for Leather Garments and Most Commercial Collection Award 2010 for Leather Accessories respectively at a function “INNOVAZIONE'10” organized by the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) for its Department of Leather Design here last night.

Ms. Ritika Sethi, Vice President of Saroj International Group, who sponsored the Awards, presented a Trophy and a Cash prize of Rs. 5000 each to the winners.

Presenting the Awards, Ms. Sethi, a NIFT Alumni, said “I was inspired by my experience while studying at Harvard, where lot of industry encouragements are given to the students. I feel that encouragement given by the industry to the students gives them a lot of boost, motivation and recognition.”

Innovazione 2010 showcased the design collections of the graduating batch where the talent, training acquired skills of craftsmanship blend seamlessly. Young designers of the future await eagerly to present their creative efforts at this platform.

NIFT's Graduating Batch of Leather Design 2006-10 presented their final design collection at the glittering show which was adjudged by a four-member high profile Jury, comprising of Ms. Ritika Sethi, Vice President of Saroj International Group, Ms. Kripal Mathur, Mr. Vijay Kumar Dua and Mr. Sanjeev Kumar -- chairpersons and associate professors of different departments of NIFT related to the subject.

Mr. Asit Barik from the Graduating Batch bagged both the awards presented by NIFT for Innovation and Best Collection respectively. Mr. Sunil Sethi, President of FDCI and Mr. Rajiv Takroo, Director General of NIFT, gave away the awards.

Saroj International Group, a Govt. Recognised Export House, has instituted these yearly Awards on completion of its 25 years in the Leather Industry for the encouragement of Commercial Designers in India.
