The creations are influenced by both contemporary and classic designs. They will be showcased at the New Delhi fashion show on 12 April 2013, at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
“We developed the curriculum to foster high levels of expertise and that was evident in the incredible designs created by our four alumni,” said Tehmasp Printer, managing director of IGI. “IGI actively nurtures the bonds between past and present students and the diamond and jewellery, often resulting in practical career opportunities for our students. ”
