Organised by Panjab University in India, the fashion and textile design workshop was well attended by research scholars, faculty members, and students from Chandigarh, Hyderabad, and Rajasthan.

The GIAN programme aims to tap into the talent pool of internationally renowned experts, scientists and entrepreneurs, to encourage their engagement with higher education institutes in India to enhance the country’s existing academic resources, and promote international collaboration.

Since its launch, eight faculty development programmes have already been established, including fashion and textile design, a globally recognised creative field.

During the workshop, NTU’s Senior Lecturer in BA (Hons) Fashion Knitwear Design and Knitted Textiles Juliana Sissons discussed different design techniques including draping versus flat pattern cutting, sustainable practices to create zero waste, and more. Students also learnt about surgical cutting, using their newfound skill to create their own surfaces and garment pieces.

Juliana, who has worked with the likes of Lee Alexander McQueen, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Scarlett Cannon, Judy Blame, and more, captured her audience with her wealth of knowledge and expertise.

Dr. Prabhdip Brar from Panjab University’s Institute of Fashion Technology and Vocational Development shared Juliana’s views on aesthetics and creativity, and artistically propelled the workshop forward exploring different colour mediums.
