Portfolio’15, the annual graduating event of Pearl Academy (8-10 May) will be remembered for plenty of reasons. The magnanimous display of design intellect by Pearlites added flair to the event and lightened up the mega exhibition. More than 500 innovative final year projects made by the graduating students from various UG and PG courses were on display at NSIC Exhibition grounds Okhla. And guess what! The grand celebration witnessed a footfall of 1500 plus visitors on Day-1 itself.
The first day began with the traditional lamp lighting ceremony. The projects showcased at the exhibition were inspired from honourable PM’s ‘Make in India’ initiative. Anand Banik, student of Pearl Academy from the School of Creative Business made a project on ‘Impact of Make in India Initiative in Apparel Industry’ and suggested how we can profitably execute this concept of Make in India.
The Day1 of Portfolio’15 was also dedicated to Design Immersion Workshops in which students from 9th grade and above learnt various aspects of design in Product Design, Styling, Photography, Jewellery Design etc. by experts from Pearl Academy. These participating students, who were from over 25 prestigious schools across Delhi/NCR, engaged with experts and gained a real-time exposure and insight into the world of creativity.
Students from Delhi Public School, Army Public School, Heritage School, Modern School (Bharakhamba), Sanskriti and Tagore International School among others looked super excited to be a part of the Portfolio.
But that’s just the beginning folks. Day 2 will be even more exciting and you know why – Manish Malhotra ofcourse! Stay here for more updates.
