A venture of the IMS education society group, DIA provides multidisciplinary education to students in the fields of fashion, textiles, jewellery, interior, multimedia and animation and retail management.

The fashion show took the viewers to different parts of India through designer clothes in various styles. Madhubani from Bihar, chikankari from Lucknow, tie and dye from western India, zari and jaali work from the Mughal era and jute fibre from the villages of India were the sources of inspiration for the young designers. The models walked down the ramp with panache presenting the clothes of the designers.The fashion show was followed by an award ceremony, felicitating and appreciating the accomplishments of the students.
