CGF 2016

The awaited fourth edition of the International Conference for Consortium of Green Fashion (CGF) is here, which promises more interactive and dynamic activities than all the previous years combined.

In sync with its vision of green fashion, the theme of this year’s conference is ‘Empowering Khadi and Handloom’.

Authenticity plays the key factor of this conference. The true purest definition of Khadi& Handloom is suggested as the mission of the conference.

The aim is to increase the acceptability of Khadi among the youth and to sensitize the young fashion talent for innovation in Handloom. Right direction and encouragement to follow these green footsteps by giving them experience and guidance, is the new approach taken this year. This is to be achieved by one-on-one interaction with Educationalist, Fashion Icons and

Artisans for a consistent 3 months brainstorming session with an idealistic approach towards Green Fashion.

The event is supported by Pidilite Industries Limited. The true nature of Khadi and Handloom will bloom through the design competitions, exhibitions and paper presentations.

To support the research and thorough process for this conference, workshops and seminar sessions as a part of grooming session are being provided on 5th and 6th of February 2016, in School of Fashion Technology campus, Pune.

The trusted believers of the green cause from the industry have been invited to lead the students in the right direction. Through their role as advisors for this preliminary session, they give guidance required for the whole process of the conference.

– Insight into the Indian Handloom Industry – It’s Journey, challenges and Opportunity, will be provided by Mr. Bijan Paul and Dr. Himadri Ghosh.
