In April 2017, I was invited by Dr Sreenanda Palit, the Centre Coordinator of Fashion Communication (FC) department at the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Kolkata to help her organise the first graduation show of the department. Being the first batch I had ever taught, this was something close to my heart.

We put together a competent core team of two talented and motivated students Rajshree Saraf and Shivangi Roy and got to work. As one of the internal jury members for the graduation project, I had an overview of what the students had worked on. The challenge was to showcase 28 projects within the confines of the small exhibition space that was allocated. The fact that the projects ranged from visual merchandising, styling, animation, illustration, typography development and photography to design research and branding, didn't make our jobs easier. Besides space design, I simultaneously worked with the core team on a social media campaign along with identity and print design. To have synergy, I curated the show by individually working with the 28 participating students to develop, modify and polish their projects. I also collaborated with Sreenanda Palit to develop a talk titled Design and The City slated for the second day of the show. The show was held on May 22 & 23, 2017. The project was conceived, designed, and executed within a month.
