Fashion Presentation

The Fashion Design Department are pioneers in this field. They were the first to commence programme in this field, in the capital city. The annual Fashion Presentation/Ramp walk of the seniormost students,is a much awaited media event.
The Polytechnic is also always, proud to realise that there are so many sister fields as well, in the Campus. For example: Textile &Apparel Design, Jewellery Design, Beauty Cosmetology &Hair Styling, Dept. of Event Management & Performing Art. Interior Design, Holistic Health & Fitness etc.
They all come together in a happy confluence to contribute and host the Poly’s Fashion Show. If we scroll down,we can see that trends and themes may have varied over the years. However ,the spirit of creativity and flame of enduring enterprise has shone in a steady stream,down the river of time.


     South Delhi Polytechnic for Women has been imparting holistic training to women in more than 18 Vocational disciplines, for more than 50 years! Our Founder Director Ashima Chaudhuri established the college with visionary acumen and merely 7 students. Now the student-populace runs into 4 digits. As, our College provides employment and skills for self-enterprise, for scores of women within India and further abroad.
      Fashion Design & Merchandising Course is the most popular and demanding programme. We feel proud to mention that as pioneers in Fashion Design, we were the first to start teaching this speciality, in the capital city of India.
      Today, the Department Head - Veena Saith & Faculty, unveil the much awaited Annual Fashion Presentation of our senior-most students. This year the theme is the eco-friendly handspun fabric 'KHADI', that has historic links with the freedom movement of our country. 26 Designer students have created apparel with this aesthetic fabric but in a contemporary mode. It is this challenging endeavour, that is being showcased on the Runway.


South Delhi Polytechnic for Women has been imparting vocational training in 18 disciplines, for more than half-a-century! Fashion Design & Merchandising is perhaps the most popular and glamorous department, with the largest number of students. We are also proud to mention that we were the first to commence this field of expression and employment, as an Academic Programme ~ in the capital city of India!

Today, at the Department we feel happy to unveil yet again, the much awaited Annual Fashion Presentation. This year it has been titled as ‘Reflections’. The Final-Yr students present their designed and constructed creativity on the ramp, as a part of their curriculum. Each Designer Student has taken inspiration from various facets of life (hopefully!), incorporating it in contemporary fashions.

The Department of Fashion Design & Merchandising in turn, was the first to start this as a subject and a professional Career Programme in the capital city of our subcontinent. This popular stream replete with glamour presents this evening a ‘final presentation’ of it’s seniormost students.
The event titled as 'Fashion-ke-Nazare' overtly illustrates the various construction techniques, selection of fabrics and colourways, that the students have focused upon. At the same time, they had to coordinate the final product with relevance to contemporary world, as a commercial merchandise. Kindly note, in order to have uniformity in judicious assessment, each Student Designer was given a Project Assignment. She had to execute a line of 5 Garments, namely: Trousers, Skirt, onepiece Gown, a Drape or a Saree, and a two-piece Costume like Salwar Suit. In significant pertinence, this evening they shall be marked by noted Industry Invitees and these marks shall be accredited to their Final Examination Summation Report.
