INIFD Vashi has come a long way making its mark in Fashion Designing and Interior Designing creating distinct environment of excellence in fashion education.
This year, IVANA 2017, promised to be a creative extravaganza by the graduating students of INIFD Vashi who showcased collections based on innovative themes and concepts. These themes included transitions of Mother Nature like the seasons and transformation of a moth into a butterfly, laser cutting, bright and spunky colors of spring, and a pinch of bohemian influence on garments like jumpsuits, influences from marine life, safari wear, royal silhouettes, asymmetrical shapes and inspirations from the paper folding art of origami.

“Our students had worked very hard for the last 3 months on their process books, spec sheets, toiles & garments.
