Future of Design Webinar by Fashion Value Chain

Fashion Value Chain organised a Webinar / Training Workshop entitled “Future of Design” with Priyanka Jagtap on 7th August 2021, 5 PM IST to 7 pm IST through Google Meet. Objective of the training workshop is to give knowledge about Digital Fashion and Textile Design illustration to students , interns, fashion professionals and many more.

Ms. Priyanka Jagtap has pursued B.Sc in fashion design and is working with renowned fashion and costume designers of Bollywood and Tollywood as their digital illustrator for costume and collections. She recently launched her label ‘House of Binibini’ and is also the founder of digital fashion design academy under the same roof of her label. 

Fashion industry has evolved at a great pace since last three decades. With the new technologies taking over to the contemporary working style across the globe, fashion industry is now shifting towards sustainability and digitalisation. Fashion courses generally impart the skill of manual fashion illustration into the budding designers. To match with the digital change, today, designers are majorly hiring digital illustrators, to bring their imagination to life.

Digital illustration not only gaining popularity due to its technical advances but also because it is more ecofriendly, less time consuming and allows more variation in less duration. To keep up with the changing world, it has now become necessary for the upcoming designers to inculcate this skill.

There is a huge number of designers in the industry, but the number of illustrators that deliver this quality of work is comparatively less. This also provides immense career opportunities for the people pursuing fashion design. Ms. Priyanka also stated the difference in the digital illustration and graphic design which are basically two different fields. The designer demonstrated illustration, rendering, and realistic effects during the webinar. She also guided the audience with the career opportunities and scopes in the field.

The designer also shared the career opportunities of digital illustrators in the field of textile designing. She also showcased her illustrations and designs in both textile and fashion.

Fashion Value Chain is grateful to Ms. Priyanka Jagtap for sharing her exemplary knowledge, skill, and experience. We are also thankful to the delegates, students and faculties of textile and fashion field who made this event a success.  This event wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of whole fashion value chain team. We congratulate Ms. Saba Shaikh, business developer for Fashion value chain and Ms. Kshipra Gadey for planning, organising, and arranging this successful event. We at Fashion Value Chain are striving to provide exposure and career guidance to the upcoming generation of Fashion designers. We anticipate having more such eminent speakers for such events in future.
