Fashion ideas roam free in jail


A fashion line brought out by prisoners will be launched soon.

The fashion line will be called Free Fashionista and have the tagline Threads of Freedom, Loknath Behera, Director General of Prisons and Correctional Services, said here recently.

The fashion line will utilise the talents of prisoners of the Central Prison here and nearby prisons to bring out apparel for men and women.

The project is part of the skill development-cum-welfare programme in the Prisons and Correctional Services of Kerala.

Twenty-five prisoners with inclination and skill in making apparels were trained by fashion experts from corporates and private institutions.

Students and teachers of the College of Fine Arts here also pitched in. For men, initially the focus will be on designer kurtas.

For women, three collections will be launched – ‘Pamba’ with focus on curves and flows and intended for women of all ages; ‘Naalukettu’ for young girls; and the Onam collection called ‘Valkannadi.’ Designer Kerala saris, hand-painted women’s kurtis, skirts and shirts for both men and women will be brought out.

Fabrics such as khadi, cotton, Balaramapuram cotton, linen, and some synthetic fabric will be used for the fashion line.

Plans are on for a digital catalogue with pictures, photographs, and write-ups. A website will be launched. The possibility of online sale is also being explored.

The products will gradually be available at Ernakulam, Thrissur, Kannur, and Kozhikode.

These will also be sent to places such as Mumbai, New Delhi and Hyderabad where these will be sold through prisons outlets.Read more at:princess prom dresses uk | mermaid prom dresses uk
