Times and Trends Academy’s (TTA) Fashion Design student, Shrushti Mulage, and Advance Garment Construction student, Aparna Agrawal, were selected to work for a Bollywood movie ‘Padmavati’ as fashion design intern. Both were selected by the well-known Bollywood fashion designer, Chandrakant Sonawane, who recently worked on costumes in the hit movie, ‘Bajirao Mastani.’ & many others.
Chandrakant’s workshop was a hit amongst students as he gave details about his inspiring story, and then discussed fashion design in details. He also showcased few of his brilliant illustrations and designs to students.
Amit Agrawal (Founder and Chairman, Times and Trends Academy) has mentored Chandrakant during his early career as a fashion design student. Mr. Amit said, “Shrushti and Aparna are creative students with the out-of-the-box thinking. We are really proud that they have got a grand opportunity to prove her mettle. We are thankful to Chandrakant for investing his precious time in mentoring students, and offering them terrific career opportunities, as working in the film industry is a dream for many of the fashion aspirants.”
Shrushti is a third-year fashion designing student at Times and Trends Academy, Deccan – Pune. Shrushti’s father runs a tailoring shop, and having grown up watching her father’s art with scissors and needles on garments, Shrushti was inspired to take up fashion designing. Aparna is an advance garment construction student who follows fashion celebrities very closely, and takes inspiration from them.
Pooja Sawant (HOD – Fashion Design Department at TTA) said, “Both of them are hard-working students here at TTA. They pour their heart into everything that they do. Their approach to things is very creative. And this creativity, and hard work that they have put in making the portfolios and at their work, helped them to get this brilliant opportunity.”
Aparna commented, “I always wanted to be a costume designer. And this dream has come true because TTA could provide such an amazing platform to me. I thank Pooja Ma’am, Amit Sir, Chandrakant Sir, and everyone at TTA for providing me an amazing opportunity and mentoring me so well that I could achieve my goals. This is just the start, and I want to do so much more as a costume designer.”
Shrushti said, “I am really glad to get this opportunity. Padmavati is a huge movie-in-making, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali Production is a grand name in the industry to be associated with. I am looking forward to learning, and gain different perspectives from this project.”
