Hey guys
Hope you all are doing well 🙂 I recently attended this ever-so- talented Fashion Show by students like really, I was shook to go through their collection, their creativity is beyond imagination guys. :*


About Pearl Academy –



Pearl Academy, India’s leading private institution/college in design, fashion, creative businesses and media, concluded this amazing campaign – #MumbaiByDesign which celebrated the quintessential ART in Mumbai through a series of initiatives across the world.

Are we excited to know more??? 😀

About Pearl Portfolio – 

Pearl Portfolio 2017 is a mega design event where our graduating students showcase their creative masterpieces as they define the future school of Design, Fashion and Creative Business. An event where you’ll be able to get a glimpse of the final project submissions of the graduating batch.

About the event: 



The day started with some panel discussions, at NESCO, along with some fun activities lined up, the selfie booth was created by the students specially for Mumbaikars, and I couldn’t resist clicking one 😉


Designer Manish Malhotra, Prahlad Kakkar, Actor Anand Tiwari and Sudhir Sharma founder, INDI Design came together in a discussion – ‘My City, My Life’ where they reflected on their journeys in the city of dreams.

I absolutely loved the fact, that they not only discussed about their journey but also guided the students, graduating students, asked them about their opinions and plans for their career, which made this panel discussion more fun and smooth going in the field of creative designing.

Next, not only this, each of the student’s artwork were displayed, right from clothes to crazy scientific experiments, were to be seen. Let my pictures do the talking 🙂

With a bold and a grungy feel- the dustbin was also creatively designed with said ‘Ikde taka’ which means Throw Here, how cool right!


After the panel discussions, here comes my favourite part – The Fashion Show, each of the graduating students, designed their masterpiece, with the help of their respective mentors. Each group had their inspiration through something or some country, which was really mature of them. I have honestly seen such shows only at LFW and AFW.



Each group had about four students, and 4-5 amazing outfits, here are some of the artwork’s done by the students at Pearl Academy Portfolio 2017.

What made me go gaga was the tribute to Mumbai- they had this special walk on the ramp, where they were dressed as Vada Pav, Dabbawalla’s, Taxi’s, Local train, which just highlighted the fact that Mumbai is known for all these random yet beautiful things.


After the fashion show, we also had Manish Malhotra’s final thoughts about the students and their creativity, imagination, And I think he was pretty much impressed. 🙂
