Event Diary – Aug 2013


On July 16 2013, Istituto Marangoni opened the doors of its Representative Office in Mumbai.
Having produced some of the biggest names in the fashion and design industry, including Domenico Dolce of Dolce & Gabbana and Franco Moschino, this 80-year-old fashion and design school is a name to reckon with. Currently, Istituto Marangoni has campuses in Milan, Paris, London and Shanghai. These campuses receive a number of students from several parts of the world every year. Over the years, a number of students from India have graduated from this prestigious school. The launch of the India office is going to make easy a number of things for innumerable students aspiring to join Istituto Marangoni. – Benaifer Mirza

Malhar on Wheels (MOW), 2013
St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai

This innovative campaign began in 2010 as a means of reaching out to colleges and acquainting them with the cultural aspects that Malhar, St. Xavier’s inter-collegiate youth festival, has to offer.
This year, 20 students will be visiting various colleges in Mumbai to publicise the events of Malhar. Several contests will be held at the colleges to encourage participation. Passes will also be distributed. The dates for this year’s MOW are 6-8 August and 12-14 August. The student delegation will travel in a bus with their fun and evergreen (quite literally) mascot, Puddles. Their aim is to create an outlet for every college to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to be a part of Malhar. The idea of MOW itself is ‘Zara Hatke’ and fits perfectly with the theme of this year’s Malhar.
