As many as 57 students from 20 colleges in the State and Andhra Pradesh exhibited their creative skills on drawing boards on Wednesday at the design competition organised here by the Society of Dyers and Colourists in association with Textiles Committee and Avinashilingam University. S. Periasamy, Deputy Director of Textiles Committee, Coimbatore, explained that the society organised national-level textile design contests every year. It was normally held in Mumbai.


This year, it was decided to organise it here so that textile students in the Southern States got an exposure to textile designing. At the global-level, the concept was “Development that meets the need of the present without compromising the ability of future generation to meet their own demands.” The participants had to bring in new designs and adopt innovative approaches. The displays here were judged based on the use of colour, concept and presentation. The top three designers would participate at the national-level competition, apart from winning cash prizes here. These designs could be transferred to fabric either through painting or through any other method.



“When students go to the industry, they should be able to work within the constraints. They got an opportunity to understand the real design situation in the industry through this competition,” he said. The students had about two months to conceptualise and come out with the designs. Three leading textile entrepreneurs judged the designs here. Designers from textile clusters such as Tiruchi were also invited to see the designs.
