Sanjit Rath’s life is in for a change. A student of National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, Rath’s been chosen by a jury of design heavyweights over 320 applicants as ‘The Debut’.
An all-expenses paid trip to an international fashion fair and an opportunity to work with Wills Lifestyle now await him. In an initiative to give young designers a push, students from National Institute of Fashion Technology, Delhi and Mumbai, Kolkata and Bangalore, Pearl Academy of Fashion, and National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, were given a chance to participate in an all-India talent hunt. For the fourth edition of this hunt, design students were given a theme — ‘Sunhera Kal - For all our tomorrows’ and were asked to make two garments each to signify continuous existence, product and technology innovations, which promote sustainability of life.
“My collection’s inspired by nature and I’m excited to work with the brand,” said Rath, who’ll be felicitated at WIFW. “We’ll take ‘The Debut’ to foreign shores and more number of fashion institutes in future,” said Atul Chand, Divisional Chief Executive, ITC’s Lifestyle Retailing Business Divison.
