“As the Japanese cherry blossom trees in Spring are full of flowers and brings smiles on the face of everyone , similarly all the garments have been really made by lots of hard work and burning of midnight oil by students as their term end  project work”, NIFD Chairperson maintained.

Two rounds of  the ex-students of the institute Mrs Sunita Anand under the brand of “Kbg Kashmiri kreations”  and Mrs Nidhi Gupta running her brand “Home Saaz” and both have carved a niche for themselves in the city and one round of Ragvarah an all men’s Studio soon to be launched in the City.

All the models are of high repute and are supermodels who have worked for nearly all the prestigious fashion weeks and designers . The show stopper of the gala event is Rashi Yadav, Miss India Earth 2016.
