Ms. Goyal explained that fashion is not just about what you wear. Fashion is an attitude. All of it does not need to have changed or wilted under the onslaught of the pandemic. The basic tenets of fashion will remain the same; the accent may change because of changed circumstances and environment. She discussed the changes that will come in clothing, accessories and in the cosmetics industry. She showed interesting new accessories like sun glasses with broader fames and cameras, umbrellas, embroidered masks etc.
One of the highlights of the webinar was the interactive session with the participants. Many interesting questions were asked and the presenter gave equally interesting answers. The webinar was attended by students, faculty, homemakers and people from all walks of life.
The webinar ended with a vote of thanks from PUAA. A lot of positive feedback and congratulatory messages for the presenter and the organizers poured in on the webinar chat and the Whats App group created for the event.
