It’s been a busy summer for Sanjana Jain from Carmel High School. He won the fashion design category at the Annual Conference of Family, Career and Community His Leaders in San Diego.
After placing first in a state fashion design competition in Muncie, Carmel senior was selected for a national competition held from June to July. It was a year of tuition in merchandising.
“I typed in a bridal garment named Scarlet Rose 3-Piece Brick. It incorporates both my Indian and American background, so it’s something I would ideally wear at a wedding to represent both my cultures. “It consists of a red blouse covered with a red lace overlay, a long pleated cotton skirt joined with two layers of lace, and a chiffon tuni with lace borders.” increase.
The inspiration for the winning design came from the many weddings Jayne attended and the desire to merge both cultures into his work.
“It took me two months to make and assemble this piece,” she said. “I was in school at this time too, so I wanted every detail to be perfect.”
Jae-in called the contest’s fashion line Amalgam. It means mixture or blend.
“This word perfectly describes my fashion line. My line is about mixing and collaborating with American bridal and groom wear and traditional Indian wear,” Jain said.
Modeling the finished product was a dream come true.
“Everyone was screaming with excitement and applause, and I was walking in with a confidence that I’ve never personally felt before,” Jain said. That was the moment when I felt like I had done it. Walking up to the podium and winning the first prize was one of the best feelings he had in my life. As you know at that point, I am proud of my parents and my whole family. ”
However, don’t expect winning entries to be sold.
“I don’t sell my exact clothes because they are very special to me,” Jain said. We will be selling very similar clothing inspired by the fashion line.”
