Bangalore: In times of skyrocketing rents and the rising mall culture that can act as major deterrents for the growth of aspiring designers, it is vital for young creative thinkers to have hands-on learning experience and vital business, International College of Fashion (ICF) chief mentor Vani Bajaj said.



Fashion weeks are thus providing a worthy platform for the benefit of students, Bajaj said.



"The fashion weeks are for sure a great help," Bajaj told IANS.



"The first step that the students take is by assisting the designers while they exhibit their collections. This not only helps them understand the thought process behind a designer's collection, but also helps them understand how to handle the customers.



"As they take to this understanding over the fashion weeks that are held, they also start forming their own business plans. The students are able to establish contacts with the people, which serves as a guide when they set out to start their own ventures," Bajaj added.



Another beacon of hope for aspirants is exhibitions.



"Any platform that enhances the business is always a welcome note for an entrepreneur. Designer hubs, exhibitions, fashion weeks, multi-brand outlets and online fashion retail, have all emerged to play a very important role within the business of fashion.
