The world has borne witness to a legion of fashion warriors, arrayed in harness of glamour, take captive hordes of consumers across regions and brand them with their brands. There’s an endless, internecine conflict of colours, cuts and styles—and the battlefield is growing day by day, pushing the belligerents to forge new alliances and capture regions for their support and survival. The whole world converges to compete for the coveted prize in fashion technology at the WorldSkills competition . In India, fashion has been bullish about itself, and over the years we have seen the country’s own breed of fashion design warriors elevate it to one of the most glamorous, exciting, rewarding and promising career options in today’s world.
The textiles and garment industry, a great contributor to the Indian economy, is trying to grow into a centre of innovation in garments and design. Fashion and its gamut provide ample scope for choosing it as a career, and today, the industry has become so compartmentalised that it needs specialists in the fields of design, materials, management and production related areas. India has all it takes to create its own distinct feel in fashion—and the industry has done exactly that. Today, you see the graduates of Indian fashion schools stride the world stage with great success.
