Concept: The concept behind this contest is to sensitize our budding garment and fashion designers and make them aware of the difficulties persons with different disabilities have with independent dressing.
The Government of India recognizes 21 different disabilities. You are requested to check this link for information. Please also look up each disability and its symptoms.
There are many other conditions too like obesity, arthritis, etc which interfere with the ability to get dressed independently. Generally speaking, disabilities like Deafness may not pose any issues but persons with visual challenges usually need help even with choosing clothes according to color and style.
We request that the participants choose a mentor who struggles with dressing up independently.
1. MENTOR - EXPERT TEAM: Each team will consist of one Fashion/Garment design expert and a mentor with a disability.
2. STUDENT - MENTOR - EXPERT TEAM: Each team will consist of the following members:
