On December 16th, Mr. Herman was invited to visit Bannari Amman Institute and became its VIP guests of the annual fashion show.
The Bannari Amman Institute is located in the state Tamil Nadu. We learnt that Tamil Nadu is the second largest state economy in India. Its official language is Tamil, which is known as one of the longest surviving classical languages in the world. We were greeted by friendly and welcoming people of the Institute.
It was a great honor for Arva to be able to witness an international fashion education project. 20 talented students from New Zealand fashion institute, NZ Fashion Tech, the recipients of the Prime Minister’s Scholarships for Asia traveled to India armed with the patterns they designed earlier that year.
The project began when Kevin Smith and Val Marshall-Smith, founders and owners of NZ Fashion Tech, teamed up with educators Giles Brooker and Prabha Govindasamy to shape a unique New Zealand-India fashion education collaboration.
Arva is looking forward to collaborate with students from India and New Zealand soon.
