We enjoyed, we had fun and we had good seasons (of achievements) in the sun. What a crackerjack of a year it has been for School of Fashion, Pearl Academy!
Despite the pandemic, months of lockdown and an underlying current of tension, our School Of Fashion students, alumni and faculty sailed through the year without a major hitch. Overcoming all constraints, innovating and experimenting within the four walls of their homes and charting success stories one after another, our fashion powerhouses emerged as complete winners. So as we clear the decks to welcome 2021, we thought it would be a good time to look back, celebrate the creative milestones and savour the shining moments once again. So strap on your seat belts, because you are up for a trip down a phenomenal memory lane.
