With the
fast-growing fashion industry in the country, India has the potential to become
the fashion hub of the world, according to Union Textiles Minister Piyush Goyal.

The minister said
that the spirit of self-reliance can be channelised by helping weavers and
artisans get their rightful dues. He was addressing the convocation ceremony at
NIFT, Delhi. Design, packaging, and branding for the products of artisans can
give them good returns and the students can consider working with them in this
direction, Goyal said.

He said the Indian
quality should define what world-class is and the institute has a major role to
play. Established in 1986, NIFT has been contributing immensely to the fashion
industry of India. Goyal
also asked NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) students and alumni
to empower weavers and artisans of the country by connecting them to the
market.

NIFT students have the means to put our rich tradition in
textile, design, and embroidery on a global platform. India has the potential
to become the fashion hub of the world. NIFT can nurture innovative ideas for
fabrics and textiles of India,” he added.

NIFT, Delhi, is engaged in 12 prestigious projects ranging from
uniform design, product design to visual merchandising. The Combat Uniform of
the Indian Army project is one of them with a total project cost of Rs 103.20
lakh.
