18 women inmates graduate from Tihar Fashion Laboratory
Jail number 6 at Tihar became something more than a regular four-walled prison for a little over six months. Eighteen women inmates studied, worked on practicals and created garments to graduate from the Tihar Fashion Laboratory. It was set up by the Delhi Prisons in collaboration with Pearl Academy in February, earlier this year.
Prior to the convocation, the fashion designers in Jail number 6 along with other inmates took to the ramp – displaying their creativity. The fashion show was divided into parts to showcase the trendy apparel. It was a splash of white across the ramp with white kurtas and shirts which were paired with pants and dhotis made of khadi. Kolhapuris and metalic arm bracellets or elegant neck bands completed the look.
The second part was dedicated to women wear in various shades of pink and grey– ranging from traditional wear, including kurtas with soft salmon waistcoats to cotton pants with light embroidery and accessorised with sparkling ear rings.
While the concept is parallel with Skill India Mission programme, it’s not only aims to transform India’s workforce into a skilled one and increase the prospect of employment but also give women inmates something to look forward to.
The initiative generated much excitement among the inmates when the programme started. Sudhir Yadav, DG Prisons, Tihar jail shared, “This initiative gave the inmates whose freedom has been curtailed behind four walls, something to prove themselves. The outcome not only defines their individuality but also secures their future.” Taking the concept further, four companies in Delhi NCR have already shown their interest in absorbing the talents — once they are out of jail.
