Pearl Academy is the harbinger of fashion revolution with a futuristic outlook. The finale of FDCI Amazon India Fashion Week, 2018, became more exuberant with the creations of graduating students of Pearl Academy under the theme of ‘Future of Fashion’, presenting it as a day long ‘Pearl Academy Portfolio 2018′ fashion show series. They put up a set of 5 impressive shows. We enjoyed Show 1 which had highly appealing themes such as Indie – Fused, Azure Fantasy, Soul Fit, Textile Assemblage, Neutral Block, Lavender Mint, Blocks Divided, Prarie Tangerine, Femme Regale, Noir League, L’ Blanche, Dusk Strut and Bijoux by Jewellery Design students of Pearl Academy, Jaipur.

Rajul Goldar brought our attention to environment-friendly fabrics that do not involve shedding of trees.
