FD student Prerna Sawhney said, “Even though it was on a short notice I plunged to grab this opportunity and be a part of it. I represented two of my garments from my Mini Collection which were inspired from two extremely strong religions the Hindu deity Durga juxtaposed by the Holocaust, that was apt for the given theme. The purpose of participating was not just winning but to get more exposure, to build up confidence in oneself, to present and express ourselves, increase one's competitive spirit and participation. Such competition makes us grow and polish us for upcoming competitions and prepares us for the future. We often understand, learn and value something even more deeply when we are physically present to see the amount of effort, labour and the skill that goes in creating it .”
While Ravi K Tirkey (FD student RMI-Delhi) said, “It was a great pleasure to be a part of the JRE Show. The idea to present our concepts of designing was interesting and new. Securing second position was again unexpected with such strong competitors. If opportunity comes in the future, I would love to be a part of such kind of competitions.”
