THE students of IFTC International Academy of Fashion and Design (IFTC) showed their mettle by presenting an impeccable runway show during the ‘Fashion Passion’ extravaganza held at Sungei Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur recently.
The showcase featured innovative and trendsetting commercial collections from contemporary ready-to-wear, high-fashion Muslimah to red-carpet evening and exquisite bridal couture by 51 first-year and graduating students.
The bridal couture dominated the runway as the students presented stunning and elaborate pieces.
Many of the dresses incorporated copious amounts of tulle and intricate detailing, which went well together. “The impressive designs on the catwalk exemplifies the quality of IFTC’s syllabus in nurturing aspiring fashion talents,” said principal Annie Wong.
Wong said students in IFTC’s programmes were trained using a unique study approach that was easy to grasp, learn and apply while producing phenomenal results within a short period.
“Our courses do not require students to go through a foundation year, they take the main subjects straight away.
“This approach is achieved through many years of revising, fine-tuning and updating the curriculum. The effectiveness of our training methods is proven by the stellar designs produced by our students,” she added.
After the show, outstanding design awards were presented to designers from different categories.
Students Jason Chong, Tham Yien Yi and Pushpavallee Krishnan were awarded for their standout creations in the Bridal Couture category. For the High Fashion Evening & Muslimah category, Dieanna Atiqah, Datin Haslinda Abdul Rahim and Nurul Nadiah Mohd Fauzi each received an award.
IFTC has been providing international fashion education for over three decades.
