I am so amazed to see the degree of ingenuity in today’s youth when it comes to Fashion and expression.”

The exposition highlights the aptitude of the students who revamped old worn out garments using paints, beads, scraps, bottle cans, pencils, pins and other non-traditional materials and created a totally new look pertaining to their talented vision.

Vidushi Agarwal of Modern School, Vasant Vihar won the contest for her asymmetrical one-off-shoulder garment embellished with pencils at the waist and ribbons at bottom depicting colors in nature. The first Runner Up position was bagged by Nilanjana from The Heritage School who used old newspaper & fibre bags for her design, followed by Jassica Sethi & Suhasini Jain of G.D Goenka School who stood Second Runner Up for their creation made up of plastic waste bag, cable wires, and stones of orange color.
