STUDENT AIKEN DERISSALIYEVA ON DLF EMPORIO DESIGN AWARDS

GD Goenka School of Fashion and Design student Aiken Derissaliyeva blogs on participating in DLF Emporio Design Awards and emerging runner-ups Student Emerging Designer of the Year 2014.

"A mail at 6:31 p.m. of a totally usual Thursday evening made my new year wish came true!! As a first year student I am always excited for new competition that the college brings forward. The DLF Emporio Design Awards 2013-14 was not an exception. As soon as I saw the poster of the competition on the notification board in the university I knew I should give it a try. I would say the registration process was the easiest part of my journey. After I got shortlisted the most challenging part was to make a product (accessory). I was freaked out to be honest as I have never done anything my own before!! But with the help and support of my mentors and faculty I have done it in last three days before the submission of the product.
  
The first stage was to get my design ready for the laser cutting. After receiving my ready laser cut design (which was incredibly good)... the stitching process arrived. And finally the product was ready. The  competition helped me to improve and enhance my skills and enrich my knowledge about different techniques used in the production process. I had a great experience being a part of this competition. It is a good platform for young designers to get recognition in the fashion industry and it is a honor for me to be chosen as a runners–up of DLF Emporio Design Awards 2013-14 by such a respected board of judges. In the future I am planning to continue participating in such competitions because this made me realize that I have a lot of creativity to tap into. My last thoughts? For a fashion designer it is important to be flexible and confident in any field of the fashion industry whether it is garment construction or making an accessory."
 

The excitement builds up as I create the design!
