A day after Mumbai city was held to ransom by the heavy monsoon rains, I happily stepped out with famed choreographer Shakir Sheikh as we drove all the way to Vashi to check out the “House of D” exhibition of fashion and interiors which had been put together by the students of INIFD Vashi.

Helmed by the young and vivacious Ria Daryani, this instution has been growing in leaps and bounds over the past couple of years.

Art work by the students, on display.

Says Ria, “We have completed Sixteen successful years and have come a long way by making a mark in fashion and interior designing by creating a distinct environment of excellence in education. INIFD is undoubtedly the top ranking design institute in the entire Navi Mumbai region and the excellent academic achievements of our students are proof of that.”

The exhibition and sale was a creative extravaganza by the students who took great pride in showcasing their work based on innovative themes and concepts.

“The Basic idea was to showcase the creative and innovative work (by the students) which is a part of their curriculum,” says Ria.

While the  interior design students have worked on product designing where in they have conceptualised their creative thought process, they have also worked on residential and commercial models.

On display were art installations, paintings, home accessories and conceptual furniture.
