The School of Fashion has a collaboration with Fashion Design Council of India, the premier body of prominent fashion designers, "which allows our students exhibit their products at Amazon India Fashion Week which is one of the two most important fashion weeks in the country," Grioli said.
The renowned Italian fashion expert said the fashion wing of the institute has international collaboration with global schools like the FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) in New York and the students interacted with each other through snapchats and together build up collections.
"During my four year stint in India, I have seen a big change. A change which would have taken 10-15 years in Europe.... More Indians are now open into western kind of clothing," he said.
Grioli came to the city to attend a programme where the academy's new undergraduate and post-graduate courses in Media and Communication and Advertising & Marketing were announced.
Pearl also announced 50 per cent merit scholarship on tuition fee for these new courses for select students.
The heads of other disciplines of Pearl were also present and briefed the media.
