Bhubaneswar: A total of 185 students graduated on Tuesday from the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Bhubaneswar.
The 185 students belonged to six different departments, namely Accessory Design, Fashion Design, Textile Design, Fashion Communication, Fashion Technology, and Fashion Management. They were finally graduated after a rigorous four years (for Bachelors) and two years (Masters) training at classroom, labs, and industry through various projects and internships.
In the wake of the Cyclone Fani, the 8th graduation event was a low key affair. Instead of usual fashion show, a static display of final Graduating Collections designed by students was organized and attended by many eminent leaders from industry, academia along with parents and outside visitors.
Industry leaders like Ranjiv Kapur, Alok Upreti, Debopam Deb, Turja Barua, Rahul Jindal, Vikrant Bharti, Yogesh Tiwari, Ranjit Tigga, Doman Tudu, Rajkumar Rai, KM Rajan, Debasish Pattnaik Biren Das, Dr Ashok Kumar Panda, and Sidharth Das attended the event.
Laying emphasis on promotion of fashion industry, NIFT Bhubaneswar Director Binay Bhusan said, “The campus placement drive is still on and so far 80 per cent students have received placements.”
