Indu Rai shows off collection at Graduate Fashion Week

Partner news Raffles Design Institute

Date posted: 29 June 2017

A fashion collection designed by a graduate from Raffles Design Institute (Hong Kong) featured on the catwalk in this year’s Graduate Fashion Week in London.

The collection was entitled ‘Ode to Forgiveness’ and was designed by Raffles Design Institute graduate Indu Rai. It was exhibited in the Swarovski International Catwalk Show as part of the Graduate Fashion Week in June.

Indu Rai designed her collection to raise awareness of victims of honour-based killings worldwide. This collection argues that there is no honour in killing an innocent person. ‘Ode to Forgiveness’ is a tribute to all the innocent lives that have been taken and for those who have died as a result of being who they are.

A partnership between the University of Derby and Raffles Design Institute was agreed in early 2017, which will see five Derby courses delivered by Raffles Design Institute at their sites in Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

The five courses are: BA (Hons) Fashion, BA (Hons) Graphic Design, BA (Hons) Interior Design, BA (Hons) Fashion and Fashion Marketing and BA (Hons) Media Production. These programmes will be delivered as franchised top-up degrees.
