Clothing Without Sewing.

LISOF recently enjoyed the privilege of participating in the India Africa Festival, when fashion designer, Anuj Sharma, hosted a 1-day workshop at the Blairgowrie campus. The purpose of the India Africa Festival was to compete, collaborate and co-create the future, and what better way to inspire and motivate the fashion designers of the future than the concept of designing clothing without sewing?
Sharma, who has developed the intriguing technique of constructing wearable garments using only buttons and rubber-bands, presented his workshop to a full group of LISOF first-year students.

Under the guidance of Anuj, the students explored the construction of garments that were modular, trendy, personalized and hip… with not a stitch in sight! The creative results speak for themselves; and great fun and much learning was had by all!
Shana Rosenthal, LISOF’s founder and CEO, commented that, “being the Leaders in the Science of Fashion, we are about innovation. Taking part in this festival was a great way for our students to gain exposure to global cultures, and in so doing broaden their perspective on the international fashion industry”.
