a fashion show as a class project

Lately, a trend is going up in educational institutions around the country of having ‘live projects’ in business studies where students are put into a situation to make the most of their learning. These can be from setting up small businesses to running full scale events. Bahria University, one of the premier universities of the capital (and my alma matter as well) takes this idea to the full. Senior students from MBA are asked to run some sort of project as a ‘class project’ (not even the final project) on which they will be graded. Due to intense competition to get better grades, each student is determined to outdo not only each other, but all of their predecessors over the last couple of years with bigger, better and bolder ideas. One such project was a Fashion Show, once an event which could only be run with university/faculty involvement, captured brilliantly by Humayun Rana as a documentary. Check it out.

Any wonder why students from Bahria are slowly becoming coveted by top organizations around the country?

    No offence to those in bahria/those promoting the fashion show, but I must say that the students at NIMS (NUST Institute of Mgt. Sciences) in Pindi got to the fashion show idea first. Moreover,they even got coverage of it on PTV… check out http://www.nims.edu.pk, and head over to the marketing club.

    Just a thought :)

    Why does everyone speak English in desi (Indian) style all the time in Pakistan these days? Doesn’t sound cool.

    We are watching it in New York and it plays fine, maybe you need to download a plugin or somethin. I’d suggest to upload it on YouTube.com so more people can watch it.

    Great Job by the way and thanks for posting. We are once again proud to be from Isloo Pakistan. I love the classic sohrab cycles between the catwalk, it symbolizes that we are keeping links to our traditional elements.

    The catwalk on the runway could have been better. The music selection is important, the models must sync correctly with the timing of the music but again great job.
